Nadal and Djokovic set up Wimbledon duel

Roger Federer

Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro celebrates winning his the fourth round match against France's Gilles Simon.

Moments later, Nadal's level dipped, allowing Juan Martín del Potro back into their quarter-final match.

The other matchups see defending champion Roger Federer against Kevin Anderson; Novak Djokovic takes on Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic meets John Isner in a matchup of big servers. "I've put myself in with hopefully a shot to be playing again on Sunday". "I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands, and try to take all the chances".

A sprightly Nadal went on the front foot to turn the tide in the fourth, Del Potro twice hitting the deck as he was broken to love to trail 3-2 and while he saved two set points behind his powerful serve, the 11-time French Open champion was jumping for joy after a searing backhand victor made sure the match would go all the way.

Anderson's experience of having already won a grand slam semi-final may also be a factor here.

But the 31-year-old has been rejuvenated at Wimbledon, sweeping into the semi-finals for the eighth time. I was close to beating him and I couldn't.

I said this in the group stages and I'm thinking, quarter-finals England will get knocked out. England aren't exactly known for their success in penalty shootouts at a World Cup.

All four semi-finalists are aged 30 or over - the first time in the Open era that the men's singles semis at a Grand Slam have been contested exclusively by players over 30.

"He is one of the more complex players that I ever saw in our sport".

Like Federer and Anderson, Nadal and del Potro Nadal slugged it out for more than four pulsating hours before Spain's 17-times major victor finally landed the knockout punch.

Nadal advances to his first Wimbledon semifinal since 2011.

"He deserved to win today".

The fourth-round match resumed on Tuesday afternoon after bad light had stopped play on Monday with the Argentinian leading by two sets to one.

The victor between Kevin Anderson and John Isner will go second on the Open era list for most attempts before reaching the Wimbledon final behind Marin Cilic, who set the record previous year after reaching the final on his 11th Wimbledon appearance.

Ninth-seeded Isner has hit a tournament-high 135 aces on his way to reaching his first Wimbledon quarterfinal.

"I just kept on telling myself I have to continue believing".
