Anderson wins to reach SW19 final

Roger Federer Wimbledon GETTYKevin Anderson is through to the semi-finals

In the United States, the match is scheduled to start after the John Isner vs Kevin Anderson match and will be broadcast on ESPN. There was this: the tumble Anderson took late in the match, only to somehow hop up, hit the ball left handed and ultimately claim the point - all as the typically stoical Wimbledon crowd gasped and screamed above them.

The fifth set between Isner and Anderson went for 2 hours, 55 minutes. His quarterfinal win over Kei Nishikori was a dominant display, as he hit 40 winners to just 21 unforced errors, won 85 percent of his first-serve points and broke Nishikori seven times. It was that kind of a bonkers contest.

While Anderson-Isner was mostly a serving duel with a few longer rallies thrown in, Djokovic and Nadal repeatedly slugged it out from the baseline, chasing each other around the court and coming up with spectacular winners from every corner. Though Isner does have a bigger serve than the South African, he has less options should it come back.

While the match was tense, it was far from compelling, with both power players simply blasting serves past one another and trading service in the final set.

Showing what a class act Anderson is, there were no wild roars, no fist pumping and no raised arms in celebration from the eighth seed. The match marked the second-longest in tournament's history, behind only his meeting with Mahut.

Isner also took part in the longest match - period, no caveats - in tennis history, which, astoundingly, almost doubled the duration of Friday's contest. Just playing like that in those sort of conditions, it's really tough on both of us. For us to be out there for that amount of time, I really hope we can address this.

The United States, for a number of geopolitical reasons, is vehemently objecting to the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

"Fortunately, I was able to find a way over the finish line". John is such a great guy. I'm definitely going to have to recover as much as I can. "I'm in the final of Wimbledon and that's half of a dream come true".

The two didn't begin their semifinal until after 8 p.m., as they had to wait out the conclusion of the 6-hour, 36-minute, five-set marathon between John Isner and Kevin Anderson. The official time was 11 hours, 5 minutes.

It was one of three successful drop shots from the Spaniard in the tiebreaker alone, but Djokovic answered with one of his own to save the second set point at 7-6.

Andy Murray's third-round match against Marcos Baghdatis in 2012 pushed the limit to 11.02pm and the time was exactly the same when Nadal netted a backhand to give Djokovic a two sets to one lead.

"Rafa and Djokovic, I don't even know, can they finish tonight?" "For a lot of people, that's definitely the lasting image of my career", Isner said.

The fifth and deciding set, which was a titanic battle, saw various records tumble, including, longest Wimbledon semi-final and the longest match in the history of Centre Court. That moment, which took 99 grueling games to reach, sent the 32-year-old South African through to the final on Sunday, where he will play one of two legends of the sport, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

"Either Nadal or Djokovic - neither needs any introduction".
