Federer hailed for 'perfect' cricket shot during Wimbledon win

Federer needed only 16 minutes to win the first set against Mannarino

Every time I come back here, I try to be like them, so it's nice to be here.

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. 'Against Anderson he has won all four matches and never dropped a set, so I expect him to comfortably get through.

No one saw that coming. But there was more.

From Wimbledon and ICC, it has now moved over to Roger Federer and Sachin Tendulkar as the two legends discussed helping each other out with their trademark shots on the tennis court and cricket field respectively.

Kevin Anderson's in for a tough day at work.

Djokovic looked in control in the first set. Reaching his first grand slam final at the US Open past year, where he lost to Nadal, gave him great confidence and it was noticeable even early on that he was able to push Federer back, a rare sight, especially on grass. Anderson and Federer are knotted at 3-3 in the final set.

As the fifth set became as much a test of mental strength as anything, from 4-all to 6-all to 8-all to 10-all, Anderson was as steady as he needed to be.

Anderson then served it out, ending things with a 128 miles per hour service victor, and raised both arms overhead.

Anderson's reward for his famous victory is a semifinal on Friday (Saturday NZT) against either American ninth seed John Isner or Canadian 13th seed Milos Raonic.

Federer found himself scheduled on Court One having been ousted from his usual Centre Court domain for the first time in three years. Federer has won all four of the previous head-to-head matchups, most recently taking down Anderson 6-1, 6-1 at the 2015 Cincinnati Masters.

Anderson's comeback victory is only the second time Federer has lost at Wimbledon after leading by two sets, following a quarter-final defeat by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in 2011.

Japan´s Kei Nishikori returns against Serbia´s Novak Djokovic during their men´s singles quarter-finals match on the ninth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships.

Nishikori had to survive heavy attack on his serve early in the second as Djokovic smelled blood, saving four break points, which included a 0-40 game.

The 12-time major victor prevailed despite picking up two code violations and accusing umpire Carlos Ramos of "double standards". When Nishikori let his own racket fly in the fourth set, he wasn't chastised, which prompted Djokovic to yell "double standards" toward Ramos - drawing boos from fans.
