Wimbledon 2018: Novak Djokovic in first Grand Slam semifinal for two years

With the Japanese serving to stay in the match, Djokovic wrapped things up after 2-1/2 hours on the first match point to secure his first Wimbledon semi-final since 2015. Kei did the same in the fourth set but wasn't warned.

I would be happy to see them lifting the trophy.' In March, he had posted a photo with Croatian football stars Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, writing on Instagram: 'Happy to meet nice guys and great players from Croatian National team.' Vladimir Djukanovic, a member of President Aleksander Vucic's Serbian Progressive Party, through a video, said that only an idiot could support Croatia.

Victory always appeared likely to be a tall order for Nishikori, who has lost to three-time Wimbledon champion Djokovic in 13 of 15 previous matches. "I don't think it's fair but it is what it is".

"I feel like I'm peaking at the right moment", declared the 12th seeded Serb after joining Americans John McEnroe and Pete Sampras in fourth place on the list of most Wimbledon semi-final appearances in the Open Era.

That push has driven up oil prices amid concerns that a divestment from Iranian oil would reduce the world's overall supply. Imports by state refiners during the period more than doubled to about 413,400 bpd from 191,700 bpd, the data showed.

His troubles began when he copped a code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct for bouncing his racquet into the grass behind the baseline on tennis's most famous centre court early in the third set.

"You're saying in the point if I toss my racket like this I'm ruining the court?"

Nishikori initially stayed with his opponent and hit back in another superb game, but a wild backhand late on handed Djokovic the first set.

Meanwhile, after dropping the second set to Nishikori, Djokovic wrested back the momentum for good in the third, coming from 0-40 down at 2-2 to hold serve.

It is not a state visit, so the President will stay with the U.S. ambassador in London instead of being hosted by the Queen. "I like Boris Johnson , I've always liked him", said Mr Trump .

Nishikori, who had won only two matches in 15 meetings with the 12-time major victor, broke for 1-0 in the fourth but was broken straight back.

When Nishikori then bounced his own racket against the court in the fourth set without being given a warning, Djokovic yelled out "double standards" toward the umpire's chair - drawing boos from the Centre Court crowd.

"Double standards, my friend". I know how I threw the racquet.

Djokovic created a first break point with an astonishing rally that concluded with a forehand down the line and a fist pump, before capitalizing brilliantly at the second attempt.
