Novak Djokovic was leading Rafael Nadal 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9) in a compelling showdown filled with entertaining points that was suspended as soon as the third set concluded at just past 11 p.m., the curfew at the All England Club. A lingering elbow injury forced him to bow out before the semis at the next six Grand Slam tournaments, but it appears the former World No. 1 is finally returning to form after a year-and-a-half of frustration.

"They've paid to see two matches, and they came pretty close to only seeing one match", Anderson said.
Anderson had already won the first point of the game but was blown back while returning yet another of Isner's monstrous serves.
"I'm a proponent of changing that rule, for sure", Isner said. "With Anderson standing 6'8" and Isner two inches taller still, both men are capable of hammering down aces at will and have done so throughout the Championships.
