Roger Federer knocked out of Wimbledon 2018 after quarter-final loss

Just one of over 400 points

Federer had a match point at 5-4 in the third set, but struck a backhand into the net before the eighth-seeded Anderson broke in the following game and held serve. "I can't see him losing to Nishikori other than the fact that Novak hasn't had success in slams for a while". But there was more. So much more. Federer was attempting to reach his 13th semifinal at Wimbledon and move closer to title No. 9, both of which would have broken his own records.

The last time he won as many consecutive sets was in 2005 and 2006 at the height of his dominance. Isner has only reached one previous grand slam quarter-final, at the US Open in 2011, and his serve proved too strong for Stefanos Tsitsipas in a 6-4, 7-6 (12/10), 7-6 (7/4) victory.

But he had never made it beyond the fourth round at Wimbledon until this week, carried by his booming serve.

Federer, aiming for a record-extending ninth Wimbledon title, settled for a tie-break which he took 7-5 - his 300th set overall at the Championships. The final score in favor of Anderson: 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11.

When asked what he admired about defending champion Federer, the 32-year-old Anderson was happy to reel off an exhaustive check-list.

Harold Varner III tied for lead at the Greenbriar
Ledesma had missed eight cuts in 15 starts in his first com Tour season, and his best finish was in Panama to start the season. After an eagle on the par-5 12th, he resigned himself to a bogey on No. 14 when his tee shot drifted into the right rough.

"I feel like a lot of aspects of my game can give him a lot of trouble", said Anderson, the first South African man in the Wimbledon quarter-finals since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

Federer seemed to be heading for a routine victory with match point to complete a straights set win in the third. His loss to Anderson was the first match he'd played at No. 1 since 2015.

On winning the match Anderson said: "I'm not quite sure what to say, I had to try my best to keep fighting".

Djokovic has improved in every tournament in 2018, making it to the fourth round of the Australian Open, the quarterfinal round of the French Open and now the semifinal round at Wimbledon.

Federer, the No 1 seed, had been widely expected to cruise through to the final before facing the likes of Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic.

Eight-times champion Roger Federer will find himself in unfamiliar territory when he takes on South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Wednesday.

But Federer went toe to toe with his buoyant opponent in an epic fifth-set tussle until with the score 11-11 Anderson pounced.
