Federer shocked at Wimbledon as Nadal and Djokovic set-up semi-final date

Federer shocked at Wimbledon as Nadal and Djokovic set-up semi-final date

The South African eighth seed saved a match point in the third set before fighting back to inflict Federer with just the fifth defeat from two sets up in an unparalleled 20-year, 1415-match career, 2-6 6-7 (5) 7-5 6-4 13-11.

The fast food chain, which began in South Africa in 1987, released a statement today saying it would offer anyone who could prove their name was Kevin Anderson a meal for them and two mates from their limited-edition haloumi range.

"Every second game is an average performance I believe", Federer told the assembled media. "The more I can just treat it like another tennis match, the better for me", Anderson said earlier in the week.

Djokovic, seeded 12th, was visibly disappointed at those missed opportunities, incurring a warning from umpire Ramos for throwing his racket, and Nishikori made him feel even worse when he broke to lead 3-1 after Djokovic put an attempted drop shot into the net.

Federer is a flawless 12-0 in Sets thus far and a ideal 4-0 in Matches at Wimbledon 2018. By the end I was able to do a great job and I wasn't thinking too much.

"I still felt like all he needed to do was give me a few second serves, finally pick the right sides again, things could change".

This Is the Galaxy Note 9's New S Pen
China-based leakster Ice Universe has posted what appears to be a promotional flyer for the upcoming Samsung flagship. The Polish market is tipped to receive the Galaxy Note 9 in three color options such as black, purple and blue.

Isner reached his first Grand Slam semi-final by beating 2016 Wimbledon finalist Milos Raonic of Canada 6-7 (7-5), 7-6 (9-7), 6-4, 6-3, hitting 25 aces and saving the only break point he faced.

Nadal, the No. 2 seed, outlasted No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro 7-5, 6-7 (7), 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in a 4-hour, 48-minute epic (same time as his 2008 Wimbledon epic win over Federer).

Kevin Anderson, left, rallied from two sets down to deny Roger Federer's bid to win his ninth Wimbledon title this year.

It is the first time since 2015 that the eight-time champion will play away from Centre Court.

Anderson had failed to take a single set off Federer in their previous four meetings. It's Anderson's biggest win outside of reaching his one and only Grand Slam final in NY a year ago.

It was a surprise result that now sends the eighth-seeded Anderson to the semifinals at Wimbledon, his first time making it that far in the storied competition that Federer has won eight times, including a year ago. His last semifinal appearance at a Grand Slam was at the US Open in 2016, where he lost in the final to Stan Wawrinka.

White House Issues Statement Clarifying Trump’s Slam of British PM May
Addressing Parliament on Monday, May said the options presented so far by European Union negotiators were unacceptable to Britain. On Monday, Johnson failed to arrive at an global meeting in London, fuelling speculation that he planned to resign.

"I think it was great quality tennis and in the final set there were some wonderful points", said 2008 and 2010 champion Nadal. I didn't harm the grass.

" I think I had chances, I'm not sure exactly how many".

Nishikori was bidding to become the first Japanese man to make the semi-finals in 85 years.

"I felt good actually". Especially with his backhand, he can go both ways. I just asked him whether he thought honestly that I damaged the court with the racket.

The other semifinal pits Rafael Nadal against Novak Djokovic, who own a combined five Wimbledon titles.

He allowed the giant Argentine just seven games in Paris. The last American man to reach the Wimbledon final was Andy Roddick in 2009.
