The match was the second-longest in professional tennis history, behind only Isner's record 11-hour, five-minute first-round Wimbledon triumph over Frenchman Nicolas Mahut in 2010.
Instead, the two players - and a disappointed audience - were sent home after the third set on Friday with Djokovic leading 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9) following a tense tiebreaker that had more entertaining rallies than some entire matches.
"You feel like it's a draw between the two of us, but somebody has to win".
Kevin Anderson has become the first South African in 97 years to go into the Wimbledon finals after defeating American John Isner 7-6, 6-7, 6-7, 6-4, 26-24 in the second-longest Wimbledon match of all time.
Quotable: "We've known each other forever", Isner said of his rivalry with Anderson.
Almost three punishing hours later they both left Centre Court with their title hopes still intact. At 6-5, Anderson saved a set point with a smash, and went on to take the first set 7-6 (8) in 63 minutes on two errors by his opponent. But with the set tied at 24, Anderson finally broke Isner's serve to make it 25-24.
Both players had set points on their own serve, and both were denied until Anderson scooped a forehand wide and Isner was ahead.
Isner had nothing left to give, and his wait for a first Grand Slam final appearance will not come until at least the 42nd attempt, which is the record begrudgingly held by David Ferrer.
And another all-time great awaits him on Sunday in either Nadal or Djokovic.
