However, Nishikori was prevented from launching a comeback as Djokovic, a three-time Wimbledon champion, regained his composure and managed to grind out wins in the third set (6-2) and in the fourth set (6-2) to set up a semifinal match against Juan Martín del Potro or Rafa Nadal.

The 20-time Grand Slam victor lost the set 6-4 as Anderson's relentless, powerful serve sent the match into a fifth and deciding set.
"It gives me confidence that I was able to play good tennis on grass", Nishikori said. "I had to go back to basics and hit as many balls as I could on the practice courts, get that feel again". Early on he was bothered by the glare off the sun, adjusting his serve and then sporting a cap.

'I didn't harm the grass. "In the midst of emotions in a tough match, it happens".

Anderson held for 5-all, broke to 6-5 with a violent return victor off a 97 miles per hour second serve, then staved off three break points and closed the set with a 133 miles per hour ace.
"It motivates me to do extremely well here because I don't want to sit here and explain my loss".
For the only the second time at Wimbledon, Federer was beaten after holding a two-set lead, with his previous loss from that position coming against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2011 quarterfinals.
