Nadal edges del Potro in 5 at Wimbledon

However, on the other side of the draw, a mouth-watering semi-final has been set up between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

It was Juan Martin del Potro who slumped to his knees and lay flat on the grass after the last point. He is one of the more complex players that I have ever seen in our sport.

Nadal was two sets to one down before fighting back to win in five sets - and nearly five hours - to reach his first SW19 semi-final since 2011.

Friday's other semi-final pitches Anderson, the eighth seed who lost to Nadal in last year's US Open final, against ninth-seeded American John Isner. I tried to resist and maintain focus.

The two-time victor will meet Novak Djokovic in the last four on Friday. The final score line read 7-5, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in favor of the 17-time Grand Slam champion.

"You know that you can't win against him if you don't play very well".

"At the same time, I'm trying to use the experience and memories that I have of being in the final stages of Grand Slams, just take things very simple, day by day". He said the only time he has played on Centre Court was during the London Olympics, and admitted: "I have no clue what that court looks like".

Netflix has just become the top Emmy-nominated network
The Handmaid's Tale earned a total of 20 Emmy nominations , however Game of Thrones received the most nods with 22 overall. Glover won directing past year and was nominated for writing, losing to "Master of None"'s Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe .

After smoothly slicing through his first four matches the five-set struggle over four hours and 47 minutes, the longest of the tournament, was probably Nadal's flawless preparation for Djokovic, who will test his stamina and movement in entirely different ways, with swift changes of direction rather than raw power and, if it is singing, his serve. However many times he's lost to Djokovic in the past-and that includes the 2011 Wimbledon final-he's now No. 1 and coming off a major title in Paris, while Djokovic is still climbing his way back up the charts.

He lost to Nadal in last year's US Open.

Germany's Julia Goerges apologised after beating close friend Kiki Bertens to progress to the first semi-final of her career at Wimbledon.

"I'm trying to get to where he's already been", said Isner, who has won all 95 of his service games this fortnight, thanks in part to a tournament-leading 161 aces.

"But also putting myself in these positions where hopefully I'm able to get another step forward and be playing on Sunday".

Isner - a college jock type never spotted without a backwards baseball cap - enjoyed his breakthrough moment earlier this year in Miami when he won his first Masters title. "I really do. I think with the performances I've had, I deserve to be in the semifinals", he continued. "Physically I'm OK. That gives me confidence to keep going in the future".
