Before Del Potro and Nadal arrive on Centre Court, three-time champion Novak Djokovic, will get the chance he's been waiting for.

Along the way, they have fought out a series of classic and epic battles including Djokovic's 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (5/7), 7-5 Australian Open final victory in 2012.

A match which has gone down in the record books as the longest Grand Slam final, lasting five hours and 53 minutes - and finishing at 1.37am - before Djokovic prevailed.

The following year, Nadal downed the Serb, who was world number one at the time, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-7, 9-7 in the semi-finals in Paris, this time in four hours and 37 minutes.

Federer suffers shock Wimbledon quarter-final loss to Anderson The two-time Wimbledon champion will face Djokovic, a three-time victor at the All England Club, for a place in Sunday's final.

"It´s not good for me. You know that you can't win against him if you don't play very well".

Spain's Nadal and Serbia's Djokovic have won 29 Grand Slam titles between them, including five previous victories at SW19.

This time a year ago, few would have expected to see either man back in the last-four at the All England Club.

He was superb in coming back from a set down to beat home favourite Kyle Edmund in the third round on Saturday, and then in bouncing back to beat Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals on Wednesday after dropping the second set.

Both of those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders - and Trump unilaterally trashed them. Well, at least Melania Trump is spending her time in London - and maybe Donald Trump could take some learning from that.

"Very happy, a very important achievement for me to be back in the semi-finals of Wimbledon".

While the Federer exit, to South African Kevin Anderson, losing 13-11 in the final set, is what will sadden most viewers and grab what there are of tennis headlines today, Nadal coming from two sets to one down against perennial almost man Juan Martin Del Potro produced perhaps the most awesome tennis of the day, and definitely the moment of the tournament.

"It will be an interesting semi-finals".

Next up for the Spaniard is a blockbuster last four showdown with Novak Djokovic.

Second, his opponent will be two-time Wimbledon champion Rafael Nadal.

South African eighth seed Anderson, 32, has reached a major final before, losing to Nadal in last year's US Open showpiece.

Having crashed out in the first round at Wimbledon for five consecutive times, Goerges' emotions spilled over at the end of the match after she embraced Bertens at the net.

Their clash, however, may not be easy on the eye. Raonic hit 31 aces to Isner's 25 but was broken three times, including the last game of the match.
