Federer suffers shock Wimbledon quarter-final exit

The 36-year-old Swiss, not playing on centre court for the first time since 2015, displayed his usual panache as he strolled through the opening two sets to stretch his streak of consecutive sets won at Wimbledon to 34.

In the fourth set, he was two points from victory but couldn't capitalize and dropped the fifth with barely a fight. He kept telling himself, "Today was going to be my day". As the match went on, I gave it my all.

I was able to hold serve throughout.

"I had moments where I was great, I felt like I was reading his serve, other moments where I don't know where the hell I was moving to".

On Friday, Anderson will play another big server, John Isner of the United States, who defeated Milos Raonic, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (9-7), 6-4, 6-3, to reach his first Grand Slam semifinal at age 33. Others still in the running for this year's men's singles title include Spanish star Rafael Nadal and Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro, now duking it out in their own quarterfinal.

Previously only Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had beaten Federer at Wimbledon after being two sets down, but the big-serving South African added his name to that list with one of the great SW19 performances.

Roger Federer lost to Kevin Anderson in the quarter-final of Wimbledon 2018.

With Anderson serving, Federer held a match point at 4-5, 30-40 - but Anderson rallied back to win the game.

The remarkable upset moves the 32-year-old Anderson one step closer to his first Major championship.

"Down two sets to love I just tried my best to keep fighting and scraped through the third and fourth set", Anderson said. He ended the match with a serve down the middle that.

"I am not saying I am not excited to play against Roger in the final", Nadal explained.

A Federer double fault at 11-11 in the fifth opened up the door to the lone break of the decider and Anderson closed it out with a massive serve to reach a first Wimbledon semifinal. The same year, he made it to his first Grand Slam quarter-final, which was at the US Open.

The 12-time major victor prevailed despite picking up two code violations and accusing umpire Carlos Ramos of "double standards". "I still think if had I lost that match point, I made a few steps in the right direction".

"It didn't harm the grass".

It was the 10 game in the third set. The umpire said he didn't see.

"I wouldn't necessarily say I've been playing like incredible". At the same time I have been in that position a couple of times in my career. Del Potro had opportunities in both to break Nadal's serve, and both went on for over nine minutes, but Nadal persevered to stave Martin del Potro off from tying the set. But when it comes to Federer, it is never just another run-of-the-mill game.

Nadal is bidding to reach a sixth Wimbledon semi-final and 28th at the majors. It capped a wild year for Federer, one that began with him in tears after a five-set loss to Nadal, but included his first French Open win (and the career Slam that came with it), a return to the winner's circle at Wimbledon and the birth of his twin girls.
