  • Djokovic won the last of his Wimbledon titles in 2015

By contrast, Federer and Nadal have played exclusively on the 15,000-seater Centre Court. "It was hard in the last few games".

Wherever he ends up playing, Djokovic, the 2011, 2014 and 2015 champion, will be favourite to see off Nishikori for a 14th time in 16 meetings. The victory allowed Anderson to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time in his professional career. "Luckily for me it didn't happen", he said of the tie which preceded his clash with Khachanov.

Gulbis has played 3 successive 5-set matches to get this far and is bidding to become just the 6th qualifier to reach the last-8 at Wimbledon.

The second seed defeated Jiri Vesely 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court.

Julia Goerges advanced to her first Wimbledon semifinal with a 3-6, 7-5, 6-1 victory over 20th-seeded Kiki Bertens.

Williams, who hasn't faced a player ranked inside the top 40 en route to the last four, will next face 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany or 20th-seeded Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands.

But the 23-time major winner's blistering form and a series of shock results have paved the way for another Williams coronation at Wimbledon.

Tennis legend Roger Federer has been hailed for a ideal batting technique after he showed off his cricket skills at Wimbledon.

He has fully-justified his seeding of eight and was mentally rock-solid in winning three tiebreaks against Monfils in his four-set win on Court One.

Nadal exited in the fourth round last year to Gilles Muller, but having made the quarterfinals this year, the 32-year-old extended his lead over Federer in the ATP rankings by 180 points.

Kei Nishikori - Nick Kyrgios's third-round vanquisher - also marched through, the Japanese superstar stopping fatiguing Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis 4-6 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (12-10) 6-1 to make his first Wimbledon quarter final.

A pretty emphatic win against an opponent who had no answers on the day, Fed had too much pace of shot, too much guile and too much aggression. "It's going to help my volleys when I'm at the net stay a little bit lower, these kind of things". "After she was complaining, they were talking in Chinese, whatever language". "I can only take positives out of this Grand Slam".

"I'm very proud to be in the same time as them".

Two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber is taking on Russian Daria Kasatkina on Centre Court.

Beaten by Serena in the 2016 final, Kerber takes on Russian 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, a 6-7 (6/8), 6-3, 6-2 victor against Belgian world number 47 Alison Van Uytvanck.
