Nishikori, competing in the quarters of the grass-court major for the second straight year, lost to eight-time champion Federer 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 on Centre Court at the All England Club. He'll also need to put pressure on Federer's serve; even if it doesn't result in a break, pushing games to deuce will extend the match and make the 37-year-old's task more hard.
But the 20-time Grand Slam victor Federer returned to formidable form in the second set, breaking his opponent's serve twice for a 5-1 lead. "I just managed to really find holes in his game and attack him".
"He was playing well", Djokovic said of Goffin. "Well, I like to play against (an) opponent like this, to play a match with a lot of rallies". There is, of course, a psychological element to this match-after all, this is tennis-and Federer should forget about his lopsided defeat to Nadal at the French Open and instead recall that he won their previous five meetings, all on hard.
"Kei came out with smashing return winners and I had to definitely make some adjustments", Federer said, adding that Nishikori was "the better player" through the first set.
Number two seed Federer was so poor in the first set that the eighth-seeded Nishikori may have felt the 37-year-old Swiss's advancing years had finally caught up with him.
"Things could have gone a different way if I had lost the first set but I was very pleased with the second and third". I just think at the end I served really good. Goodall reflects on the epic 2008 final when Nadal lifted the Gentlemen's Singles Trophy for the first time, while McKendry points out how the Spaniard can close in on Federer's record of 20 Grand Slam singles if he wins the tournament.

What an afternoon we could be in for unless, as you'd imagine will happen, Djokovic smashes his way to a quick three-set win in time to get home and watch Neighbours, if it's still on TV. "He was dictating the play from the baseline", Djokovic told Wimbledon.com after the match. "He was everywhere", said a shattered Goffin.
After a slow start, Djokovic took charge and dominated in the rest of the match, fending off five out of six break points and taking half of the return points for six breaks from nine opportunities.
"It feels better to be here in London", the 31-year-old Agut said.
"I sincerely hope, " Djokovic said, "that my opponent feels like he's got to work twice as [hard as] against any other opponent to win a point".
