Wimbledon 2018: Novak Djokovic back in semifinals

Wimbledon 2018: Novak Djokovic back in semifinals

Since then, he's been far more consistent, making it to the quarterfinals of the French Open and the finals of the Queen's Club Championships.

Having become the first Japanese man to reach the quarter-finals since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995, Nishikori must now overturn a 13-2 career losing record against three-time champion Djokovic.

"I had my chances", Federer said, "so it's disappointing".

"He was playing very deep, he was going both sides with his back and then his forehand too. he was making me run all the time". "His consistency, the way he plays such great tennis week in and week out", said Anderson.

Page and Strzok exchanged text messages that were critical of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Gohmert speculated about whether he looked "so innocent" when he looked into his wife's eyes and lied about the affair.

Scot Murray, 32 - who triumphed here a year ago alongside Martina Hingis - and former singles world No.1 Azarenka moved into the quarter-finals with a 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 win over Matwe Middelkoop and Johanna Larsson.

"It's not the first time in the semi-finals - I've been here before - but first I'll try to enjoy this victory before thinking about the next opponent". He was playing, you know, good tennis again.

Nishikori still would not fade and he forced Djokovic to go long for an early break in the fourth, but that advantage was swiftly canceled out following another fine rally. "My elbow was bothering me little bit", admitted Nishikori.

Novak Djokovic claims he was treated unfairly by chair umpire Carlos Ramos during his quarter-final win over Kei Nishikori to book his spot in the final four at Wimbledon.

Croatia and England go to extra time
Having ended their famous penalty curse by beating Colombia in a shootout in the last 16, they might have fancied repeating here. Croatia's defence is considered their weak link with neither Lovren nor centre-back partner Domagoj Vida boasting great pace.

The Serb has progressed to the last four of a Grand Slam for the 32nd time to take sole ownership of second place on the list for the most semi-final appearances at a major in the Open Era, ahead of American great Jimmy Connors.

However, the 31-year-old has looked back to something approaching his best at Wimbledon.

"It feels nice to be back in the last four of a Grand Slam, I didn't experience that for a while. I guess there are other factors that play in". "I feel physically, mentally ready, fit, positive". "Anything could have happened, so this is a big achievement for me to get to the semi-finals at Wimbledon". Nishikori, who had won only two matches in 15 meetings with the 12-time major victor, broke for 1-0 in the fourth but was broken straight back. After making it to the fourth round of the Australian Open, an event where he's dominated historically, Djokovic lost in the first round of several masters events, including the Indian Wells Masters and the Miami Open.

"I thought it was unnecessary to get the warning", he told the BBC after the 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2 win. And I asked everybody behind me out loud, "What did you hear me say?'. But things are looking much better in the last month and a half".
