Kevin Anderson vs John Isner, Wimbledon 2018 semi-final

Isner reaches Wimbledon semi-finals after victory over Raonic

Greensboro native John Isner was eliminated in the Wimbledon semifinals Friday.

"With how I'm feeling physically and mentally, I'm in a very good spot", Isner said in his post-match press conference.

He faced his friend and old college foe Kevin Anderson in the semifinals Friday, where he lost in a game that lasted more than six hours. But once upon a time he starred at Page High and became an NCAA All-American player at Georgia.

After watching Isner strike a tired forehand wide, Anderson advanced to the Wimbledon final at the 10th time of asking.

But not before Merkel and other top officials in the German government had publicly fired back at Trump's breakfast diatribe. Navy Admiral James Stavridis said in an interview with host Vassy Kapelos on CBC News Network's Power & Politics Thursday.

The marathon tie meant that the Nadal v Djokovic semi-final was to be played under the roof as the light began to fade just after 8pm.

This time, however, Isner came out on the losing end, falling 7-6 (6), 6-7 (5), 6-7 (9), 6-4, 26-24 in six hours, 35 minutes on Centre Court.

After taking a medical timeout after the third set, Anderson surprisingly broke Isner's serve at 2-all in the fourth.

Now the No. 8 seed Anderson will face Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic in Mondday morning's final.

That service hold - helped by a 129 miles per hour (207.6km/h) second serve - took the American to 100 service games unbroken at this Wimbledon. He would go on to break the big American and then served out the match.

Anderson took a medical timeout after the third set. The two went back and forth all the way to 12-all, essentially playing a full sixth and seventh set.

Isner is best known to many fans, particularly in Great Britain, for his astonishing contest with Nicolas Mahut on Court 18 at Wimbledon in 2010.

It's his second showpiece appearance in four major tournaments after his runner-up finish in last year's US Open.
