Wimbledon defeat to Kevin Anderson showed John McEnroe one thing

Security hold people back

Nadal advances to his first Wimbledon semifinal since 2011.

"There is no one other match in the history of tennis that has been played more than our match. Sometimes you play your best tennis and it's not enough to beat him", said the teary-eyed Argentine, who has had the misfortune of running into Nadal at the French Open and Wimbledon championships over the past five weeks.

"We have always considered him an ambassador and he continues to wave the flag".

Next up for the Spaniard is a blockbuster last four showdown with Novak Djokovic.

"At the same time, I'm trying to use the experience and memories that I have of being in the final stages of Grand Slams, just take things very simple, day by day".

Djokovic leads their epic head-to-head rivalry 26-25.

Nadal will next face Serbian star Novak Djokovic, who didn't quite have the same crowd admiration throughout his win over Kei Nishikori after appearing to lose his cool toward the chair umpire.

"He is one of the more complex players that I ever saw in our sport". I tried to resist and maintain focus. "Obviously I've been very pleased with the way I've played so far on the grass court season". Neither has won a major title, although Anderson came the closest, losing to Nadal in last year's U.S. Open final.

But while Nadal and three-time champion Djokovic were expected to win, and Isner seeded to do so over Raonic, Anderson had never even extracted a set from Federer in four previous meetings.

None of his opening four opponents were ranked inside the world top 50, meaning he faced a huge jump in class against world number four Juan Martin del Potro in Wednesday's semi-final.

Juan Martin del Potro paid his respects to Rafael Nadal after suffering defeat in a mammoth quarter-final clash at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

It was a breathless Wimbledon contest that kept on giving for nearly five hours - diving volleys, ferocious forehands, blazing backhands and even acrobatic tumbles - and at the end of it all Rafael Nadal was the one left standing on Wednesday.

That's the analysis of three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe.

Federer squandered a match point and let slip a two-set lead for only the fifth time in his 20-year career as big-serving South African Kevin Anderson notched a famous 2-6 6-7 (5-7) 7-5 6-4 13-11 quarter-final triumph over the eight-times champion.

Anderson or Isner to reach first SW19 final?
