Share

Del Potro, whose best run at the All England Club saw him reach the semi-finals in 2013, triumphed 7-6 (7/1) 7-6 (7/5) 5-7 7-6 (7/5) to set up a last-eight meeting with Rafael Nadal.

In yesterday's quarter-final match-ups, both players had very different matches.

But Nadal was first to break in the deciding set and he built a 5-3 advantage with a looped forehand victor before confirming his final four place with a volley after four hours and 48 minutes.

"It's a big challenge to play Novak". "He's playing very well, I've seen so much of him".

'Obviously at the end of this day, analyse things that I've done right, that maybe need some improvement, focus on the next day's practice session, recovery.

Nadal had three set points to go up two-sets-to-love earlier in the match.

Del Potro ended the match flat on the grass as Nadal held his arms aloft, before clambering over the net for a consoling, and exhausted, hug.

It was not as if Nadal was playing badly as he had lost only nine points on serve before heading into the ninth game of the second set.But just before that game started, Federer's shock demise was flashed up on the giant on-court scoreboard and it was as if that threw the Spaniard off his stride and he fluffed his lines to drop his serve.

The semi-final clash between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will be their 52nd career meeting.

"By the end I thought I did a great job not thinking about what was happening".

When he finally prevailed after four hours and 48 minutes, Nadal - and del Potro - received a rousing standing ovation from the packed crowd including another living legend left-hander Rod Laver in the Royal Box.

But the same goes for the 32-year-old Anderson, who also reached his first Wimbledon quarterfinal, and now semifinal, this week.

"Anything could happen, so this is a big achievement for me to get to the semi-finals at Wimbledon".

"There is no one other match in the history of tennis that has been played more than our match".

While both of those Nadal victories came on clay, they may set the tone for how this match begins.

"But also putting myself in these positions where hopefully I'm able to get another step forward and be playing on Sunday".

Nadal won't go away or roll over, even if he's 5-1 down in a deciding set. Having reached the US Open final past year, Anderson will also be one-up on Isner in the big-stage experience department.

Nadal is now two wins from an 18th Grand Slam title although he felt the one negative was having to play for close to five hours, but was happy to have survived an epic encounter.

"With how I'm feeling physically and mentally, I'm in a very good spot".
