Wimbledon could detract from cup final, jokes Roger Federer

Defending champion Roger Federer is out of Wimbledon after eighth seed Kevin Anderson fought back from two sets down in a gripping quarter-final.

He has a flawless straight-sets record, and comes into this match against last year's US Open semi-finalist Kevin Anderson in the knowledge that the South African has never won a set against him in four matches. The eight-time champion has won 32 consecutive sets at Wimbledon and two away from emulating the record he had achieved between 2005 and 2006.

Second seed Rafael Nadal of Spain was playing fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina in the other last-eight clash after Novak Djokovic outlasted Kei Nishikori to be the first man to reach the semifinals.

While Federer's stunning loss has denied tennis fans the possibility of another blockbuster final showdown with his great rival Nadal, Anderson now has the opportunity to go one better than his charge to last year's US Open title decider.

The Swiss refused to blame his surprise defeat on the decision to play the match on Court One rather than his customary Centre Court stage at the All England Club.

"The expectations he's had to deal with for over a decade, 15 years, I mean, at the top of the game, he's able to deal with it so well, which isn't easy".

Talking about the same while addressing the press after the match, Federer said, "I feel like these streaks just happen".

Djokovic has had a hard two years but is beginning to look and feel a lot more like his old self again.

It is the second time that 20-times Grand Slam champion Federer has lost at Wimbledon from two sets ahead, suffering the same fate against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2011 quarter-finals.

"He is not particularly excited, but I think he has everything to go far".

"I don't think it really mattered, to be honest". He ended the match with a serve down the middle that.

"He was down match point in the third set, and he's through to his first ever semi-final here at Wimbledon now".
