Djokovic Breaks Nishikori To Reach Wimbledon Semis

Djokovic Breaks Nishikori To Reach Wimbledon Semis

The Serb looked in impressive form, particularly when he closed out the final set in ruthless fashion to set up a blockbuster semi-final with world number one Rafa Nadal.

He will now face a semifinal match against either Juan Martín del Potro or Rafa Nadal.

Novak Djokovic is feeling more optimistic after continuing his fine run at Wimbledon by reaching the quarter-finals. "The opponent that is coming one of the toughest".

"I kept telling myself to keep believing". "I need to find that something".

It is Djokovic's first appearance in the semi-finals at the All England Club since 2015 - when he last won the title - and he revealed his motivation is fully back as he chases Grand Slam title No. 13.

Defending champion Roger Federer's hopes of a ninth Wimbledon title are over after he let slip a two-set lead as he lost to No 8 seed Kevin Anderson in the quarter-finals.

"I want to use today's result as a spring from which to aim for a final place". He made a couple of great shots but I managed to break and get back into the set.

Russian intelligence officers indicted for hacking in 2016 US presidential election
Today's latest, and nearly certainly not last, indictments in the Russia scandal concern 12 Russian intelligence figures. The four Trump associates that have been charged are not accused of helping Russian Federation meddle in the election.

That dented the Japanese confidence and Djokovic grabbed the double break to seal set three but the inexorable march to victory that many had predicted did not materialize.

It took four hours and 13 minutes, but it did indeed become Anderson's day. "I feel like I'm peaking at the right moment". It was the first time he played a fourth set at Wimbledon since 2016 against Milos Raonic.

"It doesn't get any bigger than Wimbledon, so hopefully I can keep on going". I get the warning, he doesn't, so it's not fair.

Being made to play his fourth round and quarter-final matches on successive days cost Djokovic dear last July as he not only ended up retiring hurt from in his last-eight contest but also had to call time on his 2017 season. Like Djokovic, Nishikori does things on his own terms - he walks between points, scuffing his feet, and on receiving balls ahead of serve, if the distribution was slightly off he would not take a step left nor right to collect it.

"He was pumping himself up. He was playing, you know, good tennis again", said the Japanese. "I'm enjoying my Wimbledon journey".

Kei Nishikori bowed out of Wimbledon on Wednesday after losing to Novak Djokovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the quarterfinals. However, he prevented further damage when he held from 0-40 at 2-2 in the third set, and the hold would prove significant as he responded well to break Nishikori twice in succession.

"It feels great to be in the last four".
