"Novak is one of the most hard opponents you can face".

"I'm sorry for him, of course", said Nadal.

Eighth seed Anderson will play American ninth seed John Isner on Friday for a place in Sunday's final.

"And for the fans, too".

Nadal and Djokovic will be meeting for the 52nd time in their career, with Djokovic leading their head-to-head 26-25.

A few hours earlier, however, it looked as if it was going to be 32-year-old Nadal who would end up down and out. It is always a big test. I think I did a lot of things well. I'm really happy for you. I tried to resist and maintain focus. "Obviously I've been very pleased with the way I've played so far on the grass court season".

After all, those were broad details of the mesmerising 2008 final when the Spaniard ended Roger Federer's five-year Wimbledon reign and hoisted the Challenge Cup for the first time.

The world number one, playing in his first All England Club quarter-final since finishing runner-up to Djokovic in 2011, then wasted four set points in the second. "I was not thinking much about what was going on in the other court", said Nadal, who at the same time as Federer, endured a five-hour battle against Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro on centre court.

During the dinner, they reaffirmed their strong alliance and vowed to jointly fight against terrorism and Russian aggression. Dick said they will be linked through to units at the same level in sectors such as the intelligence world.


Only problem was that on Wednesday nobody was rushing out to roll out the green carpet and hand over the trophy as the Spaniard's 7-5 6-7 (7) 4-6 6-4 6-4 victory over Juan Martin del Potro had merely secured him a semi-final with Novak Djokovic. The final score line read 7-5, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in favor of the 17-time Grand Slam champion.

After seven weeks out with a serious knee injury, many doubted if Nadal would regain his crown as the "King of Clay".

The first semifinal at Centre Court, between No. 8 seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa and No. 9 John Isner of the US, features two powerful servers with similar games who have a lot less star power and considerably fewer Grand Slam trophies, to say the least: The Nadal-Djokovic combined count is 29, including five at Wimbledon.

Both men are in the semi-finals at Wimbledon for the first time.

Rafael Nadal avoided joining Roger Federer in a shock Wimbledon exit as he booked a glamorous semi-final clash with old foe Novak Djokovic.

"I just kept on telling myself I have to continue believing".

"But my goal is to try to play very well".

'When I go to sleep I have to take a correct position and rest as more as possible. "I have all the confidence that he will win the tournament and the title of Wimbledon champion", Xasa said.
