Former Illini star Kevin Anderson ousts Roger Federer at Wimbledon

Djokovic secured that game with a forehand victor, then saved two game points on Nishikori's serve before converting his first match point with a forehand down the line.

The eight-time champion was two sets up and had a match point in the third, but nearly three hours later he trudged off on the end of a seismic 2-6 6-7 (5/7) 7-5 6-4 13-11 upset.

"It was just one of those days where you hope to get by somehow", Federer said. "I nearly could have".

Anderson is getting used to breaking barriers.

Back to deuce. From there, it all began to change. We thought he could lose to maybe somebody else, but not necessarily Anderson, who hasn't had huge success coming into this tournament.

The comeback was just beginning. Every time I come back here, I try to be like them, so it's nice to be here.

Opening in typically dominant style, the 36-year-old Federer won the opening two sets; relinquishing a match-point in the third. But there was more.

"Beating Roger Federer at Wimbledon is definitely one I'm going to remember".

Djokovic copped a code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct after flinging his racquet into the grass behind the baseline in frustration early in the third set.

Kevin Anderson's in for a tough day at work.

There was little sign of the drama which unfolded when Federer raced through the first set in 26 minutes. "That's the worst feeling you can have as a tennis player".

Federer out of Wimbledon
The first hiccup surfaced at the start of the second set with Anderson breaking the Federer serve and ending that run of holds. On Sunday, spectators were given a thrill when Nadal, Federer and Novak Djokovic all practiced side-by-side at the same time.

Before adding: 'I'm finding I have to change my style cause nothing in my closet fits me from before'. She went on to reveal that her daughter "has my ears", which "kind of come out a little bit".

It would be unwise to write off his chances of adding to his 20 grand slam titles in light of his three in the past 18 months but it is not going to get any easier, certainly at Wimbledon.

Federer seemed rattled and his forehand began to look vulnerable and it was that stroke which allowed Anderson a decisive break of serve at 3-3 in the fourth.

Federer couldn't convert a break point at 3-4 and as the final set headed into extra time a lone voice in the crowd, mindful of England's imminent World Cup semi-final against Croatia, shouted out "Hurry up I need to watch the football". "It's a good vibe", Federer said. "You're never really safe".

The decider went on serve deep into double figures, before Anderson broke in the decisive 23rd game to set up a chance to serve the match - a chance he duly took.

Anderson then served it out, ending things with a 128 miles per hour service victor, and raised both arms overhead.

Now the 32-year-old South African moves on to a semifinal against No. 9 John Isner of the USA or No. 13 Milos Raonic of Canada.

But he first wants to learn how to play the backhand before teaching Federer how to play the straight drive. Federer has won all four of the previous head-to-head matchups, most recently taking down Anderson 6-1, 6-1 at the 2015 Cincinnati Masters.

For only the fifth time (and third in 269 Grand Slam matches), Federer squandered a two-sets to love lead.

Two-time champion Nadal is through to the last eight at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011.

He then broke the serve of his Japanese opponent in the next game. When Nishikori let his own racket fly in the fourth set, he wasn't chastised, which prompted Djokovic to yell "double standards" toward Ramos - drawing boos from fans.

Soon enough, Djokovic was on his way to the semifinals, where he will meet Rafael Nadal or Juan Martin del Potro.
