Rafael Nadal Topples Juan Martin Del Potro to Advance at 2018 Wimbledon

GETTYFederer is looking to win his ninth Wimbledon title this week

Roger Federer

But just as a record-extending 44th grand slam semi-final appearance beckoned, Federer blinked - and eighth-seeded Anderson seized the moment. It also highlights the calibre of player Anderson is.

After two years of physical and mental struggles, Djokovic appears fit and confident and ready to try to add to his tally of 12 grand slam titles.

The pair have only met twice at Wimbledon, Nadal winning their 2007 semi-final when Djokovic retired hurt, the Serb gaining revenge in the 2011 final.

"Friday is another important match against an opponent who is one of the most hard ones that you can face". A tired Del Potro, a semi-finalist in 2013, finished with 33 aces and 77 winners but even those impressive statistics were not enough.

Kevin Anderson celebrates beating Roger Federer on Wednesday.

He led 40-15 but both match points went begging.

A few hours earlier, however, it looked as if it was going to be 32-year-old Nadal who would end up down and out. He is one of the more complex players that I have ever seen in our sport, it is always a big test.

Next up for the Spaniard is a blockbuster last four showdown with Novak Djokovic. Sometimes you play your best tennis and it's not enough to beat him.

Isner and his wife are expecting their first child in September and he says: "There's a lot of very cool things going on right now, life-changing things".

How will Turkey's new system work?
Erdoğan will also have the power to appoint senior members of the judiciary and to issue decrees with the force of law. He said it did away with a "system that heavily cost our country through political, social and economic chaos".


He showed signs of recovering at the French Open before a shock loss in the quarter-finals against unseeded Italian Marco Cecchinato, then reached the Queen's final where more mental fragility proved his undoing against Marin Cilic.

The women's semi-finals are set for Thursday.

"It´s not good for me". You know that you can not win against Novak if you don't play well.

At least Anderson can boast of one runner-up finish, and it was recent, against Nadal at last year's U.S. Open. Sorry to Juan Martin, he's an incredible opponent and fantastic player.

It was a case of down but definitely not out as a Rafael Nadal kept fighting to make it to the Wimbledon semi-finals with a pulsating 7-5 6-7 (7) 4-6 6-4 6-4 over Juan Martin del Potro.

The 17-time Grand Slam champion was not to be denied a place in the semis, though, coming through a monumental battle with the fifth seed to win 7-5, 6-7 (7), 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in four hours and 47 minutes.

After seven weeks out with a serious knee injury, many doubted if Nadal would regain his crown as the "King of Clay".

A set littered with one lengthy rally after another, eventually went to Nadal on serve, finally giving him the match.

John Isner is 8-3 in his career against Kevin Anderson.
