Wimbledon 2018: Rafael Nadal Prefers Not To Face Roger Federer In Final

We thought he could lose to maybe somebody else, but not necessarily Anderson, who hasn't had huge success coming into this tournament.

Federer suffered his earliest exit at Wimbledon since a shock second-round defeat against Sergiy Stakhovsky in 2013.

Anderson will now move into his first semi-finals at the tournament; taking on the victor of John Isner and Milos Raonic for a place in a final against what may be Rafa Nadal or Novak Djokovic.

"Down two sets to love I tried my best to keep fighting".

The three-time Wimbledon champion was broken in the opening game of the fourth set, but won the next four games and broke again to clinch victory. Now I feel horribly worn out and just terrible. You have to have that mindset. If you ask me if I prefer another one, I say yes. "Matches likes that are very special".

Now, at age 32, he has reached the semifinals at Wimbledon for the first time.

He missed a match point when two sets up before eighth seed Anderson fought back to win a remarkable contest.

Federer over-hit a backhand and when his opponent courteously returned the ball, the eight-time Wimbledon champion elected to display his cricket skills, with a punched forward defence, which didn't go unnoticed by Wimbledon's social media accounts.

Anderson had failed to take a single set off Federer in their previous four meetings. Federer even held a match point at 5-4 in the third.

The Swiss lost the set in a flurry of aces, with Anderson's relentless, powerful serve sending the match into a decider.

Meanwhile Novak Djokovic ended his near two-year absence from grand slam semi-finals by booking a place in the last four at Wimbledon.

Not since Wayne Ferreira in 1994 had a South African man made the Wimbledon quarter-finals, but Anderson wasn't overawed by the occasion. "I just gave it my all and I'm ecstatic to get through that".

Federer had a match point in the third set at 4-5, 30-40 but failed to take it, before Anderson broke in the following game to earn the opportunity to serve out the set. I scraped through the third and fourth sets.

Federer was 4-0 against Anderson entering the day, winning every set they'd ever played against each other.

The first hiccup surfaced at the start of the second set with Anderson breaking the Federer serve and ending that run of holds.

Tennis legend Roger Federer has been hailed for a flawless batting technique after he showed off his cricket skills at Wimbledon.

And it was Federer who blinked, double-faulting to face a break point at 11-all, then slapping a forehand into the net to cede the key break.
