Novak Djokovic into tenth Wimbledon quarter-final, to take on Kei Nishikori

Novak Djokovic reveals what was his best match in career

Novak Djokovic looked back to his best on Wednesday after clinching a spot in yet another Wimbledon semi-final.

"It feels great to be in the last four of a slam", he said. "I need to recover to give my best". I've been building in the past couple of weeks. Early on he was bothered by the glare off the sun, adjusting his serve and then sporting a cap.

The fifth game of the third set was nearly a mirror of the third game of the second - which Nishikori had held despite three break points.

Those fears dimmed when Nishikori broke Nole in the opening game of the fourth set, but again the balance tipped in the Serb's direction when he broke back in the follower. 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.

"I just asked the chair umpire, 'How did I deserve that warning?'", Djokovic said.

It didn't show in Djokovic's play, though, as he embarked upon another swing of four games in succession, holding Nishikori to three points in his next two service sets as he soared into a 4-1 lead. "I didn't harm the grass", he said.

"I was really glad to play Queen's and to get five matches there".

"It motivates me to do extremely well here because I don't want to sit here and explain my loss".

In addition, Rios said, the Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad had chartered four helicopters to assist the Coast Guard. Taquan Air says it's co-operating with authorities examining the circumstances surrounding the Tuesday morning crash.

It was a case of down but definitely not out as a Rafael Nadal kept picking himself off a slippery and dusty Centre Court surface to storm into the Wimbledon semi-finals with a pulsating 7-5 6-7 (7) 4-6 6-4 6-4 over Juan Martin del Potro.

The Japanese player has already lost twice to the former world number one this year - on clay in Madrid and Rome.

"Down two sets to love I tried my best to keep fighting". Beating Roger Federer at Wimbledon is one I will remember. I am just excited to be in the semis.

'I'm sure he's in good shape again. "The umpire said he didn't see". I feel like I'm peaking at the right time.

In his first Wimbledon semifinal, Anderson will face 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic or ninth-seeded John Isner.

Djokovic won a dozen major titles before a loss of form, and injury problems, affected his game following his first French Open triumph in 2016. Indignation that he has not won a grand-slam event for more than two years. His record of 34 straight Wimbledon wins when up 2-0 was snapped in the third set, and Federer fell shortly after.

But, playing on Court One for the first time in three years, Federer was unusually error-prone.
