Wimbledon accept Novak Djokovic's request regarding Roger Federer

Roger Federer

Roger Federer has played down the prospect of a clash between the Wimbledon and World Cup finals by joking that football fans in Moscow will be distracted by the tennis.

World number one Rafael Nadal takes on Argentine Juan Martin del Potro directly after Djokovic's match on Centre Court, and Brit Andy Murray, who misses the tournament through injury, cited the decision to have two games staged back to back was the correct one.

The South African player was surprised at learning that he will play against Roger Federer on Wednesday. 'I didn't know the draw!', Anderson admitted after his four-set win over the Frenchman Gael Monfils. 'Against Anderson he has won all four matches and never dropped a set, so I expect him to comfortably get through.

It will be Djokovic's first semi-final at a major since the 2016 French Open when he completed the career Grand Slam.

"I scraped through the third and fourth sets and by the end I thought I did a great job".

Ramos then hit Djokovic with a time violation warning for taking too long to serve in the seventh game of the fourth set.

He said: 'I felt like in the last month and a half, the level of tennis has been very close to where I would like it to be, where I'm used to having it.

The final set lasted 90 minutes, and it was captivating stuff.

Nishikori, playing in his first quarter-final at the All England Club, was bidding to become the first Japanese man to make the Wimbledon semi-finals in 85 years.

"I kept telling myself to keep believing". You need that mindset against Roger.

Djokovic, seeded 12th, incurred a warning for throwing his racket and was clearly frustrated, complaining of "double standards" when Nishikori was not punished for a racket throw. Nishikori did the same in the fourth set and he didn't get a warning. I just asked him whether he thought honestly that I damaged the court with the racket. I think that's not fair. "I'm pleased I'll be staying there right now".
