That initial burst gave Federer 34 successive sets won at Wimbledon, equaling his own record set between 2005 and 2006.

Federer had a match point at 5-4 in the third set, but struck a backhand into the net before the eighth-seeded Anderson broke in the following game and held serve.

The first came in the second set for smashing his racket against the well-worn turf behind the baseline.

Djokovic, three times a champion at SW19, maintained the dominance he has shown throughout the tournament on his first serve.

Anderson, a 32-year-old South African who played college tennis at IL, served it out, ending things with a 128 miles per hour service victor before raising both arms. He was within touching distance as he held to 30 for a 5-2 buffer and, much like the preceding set, he rammed home his superiority to seal the set - and the match - with a double break.

Novak Djokovic advanced to the last four at a Grand Slam for the first time since 2016 with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 Wimbledon quarter-final victory over Kei Nishikori.

Three time victor Novak Djokovic returned to a Grand Slam semi-final for the first time since the 2016 U.S. Open, beating Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2.

It will be the Serbian's first appearance in the last four at a grand slam since finishing as runner-up at the US Open in 2016. The 12-time major victor prevailed despite picking up two code violations and accusing umpire Carlos Ramos of "double standards".

'I thought it was unnecessary to get the warning, ' he told the BBC after the 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2 win. I didn't harm the grass.

"[Nishikori] even threw the racquet in the fourth set. I don't think it's fair but it is what it is". I am very grateful to play on the court I love and to be competing at a high level.

Nishikori, who failed to take advantage of three break points early in the third set and lost his serve immediately afterwards, reckoned the Serb was timing his return to form just right. "I think with the performances I've had, I deserve to be in the semifinals".

Djokovic is a three-time victor at Wimbledon, having won the title in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

Khachanov's display was flashy but full of errors, and Djokovic was ruthless in punishing them, coming through 6-4 6-2 6-2 to set up a last-eight meeting with Kei Nishikori. You have got people in all different languages swearing constantly all the time. "I really do", Djokovic said.

"Double standards, my friend". It was a step up in momentum that Nishikori momentarily halted with a break at the start of the fourth, but Djokovic then returned the favour and closed out the match.

He will surely pose a threat for the 12-seed Djokovic. Indignation that he has not won a grand-slam event for more than two years.
