The eight-time champion was two sets up and had a match point in the third, but nearly three hours later he trudged off on the end of a seismic 2-6 6-7 (5/7) 7-5 6-4 13-11 upset. From there, Anderson came all the way back, shocking Federer with a 13-11 triumph in the fifth and final set, capping off the four-plus hour match with a bullet serve up the middle that Federer returned long.

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

Nadal faces the victor of Juan Martin del Potro and Gilles Simon while Federer takes on US Open finalist Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinals.

"It would take an unbelievable serving performance and for Roger had a bad serving day to cause an upset".

Should Djokovic, Nadal and Federer win, it would be the first time all three played in a semifinal since the 2012 French Open.

Not quite to the same extent as Anderson, but Djokovic too was forced to improve as his meeting with Nishikori raged on, particularly after the 24th seed showed a sturdier response to level after two sets.

Meanwhile, Nadal will face off against Juan Martin del Potro; Federer will play Kevin Anderson and Djokovic will play Kei Nishikori.

Federer, the No. 1 seed, had match point up 5-4 in the third set, but could not put Anderson, the No. 8 seed, away. Beating Roger Federer at Wimbledon is one I will remember.

Federer found himself scheduled on Court One having been ousted from his usual Centre Court domain for the first time in three years.

Djokovic is a 12-time major champion who's been in something of a rut, due to right elbow troubles that lasted more than a year until he finally had surgery in February.

South African Kevin Anderson outlasted Roger Federer 13-11 in the fifth set of their Wimbledon quarterfinal.

"The overall goal is try to win the tournament". You need that mindset against Roger.

He then let rip at Ramos for failing to sanction Nishikori for a similar act in the fourth set.

"I scraped through the third and fourth sets and by the end I thought I did a great job". After that, Federer began to struggle and Anderson unloaded his swings on every shot.

Anderson staved off Federer's first and only attempt at match point, trailing 5-4 in the third set, before winning the game to tie the set at 5-5 and ultimately winning the next game to take a 6-5 lead. "If you go out there with doubts or unsure what's going to happen, like I maybe did a little bit in that first set, it's not going to go your way".

"Down match-point, and two sets to love, I just tried my best".
