Wimbledon 2018: Rafael Nadal in stands, Novak Djokovic incensed during wins

With Djokovic leading a 15-love game in the first set of their quarterfinal match on Wednesday, Nishikori pulled off what may be the shot of the tournament on a high lob from Djokovic that looked like it was going out.

With his 24th seeded opponent saving three break points to hold serve at 2-1, Djokovic bounced his racket off the baseline in frustration and then seethed after he was given a code of conduct warning.

Djokovic had to overcome a series of rows with Carlos Ramos to book a 52nd on-court date on Friday with world No.1 Rafael Nadal.

Simon, looking for his third Grand Slam quarter-final at the age of 33, secured the first break of the match to take a 4-3 lead in the second set when Del Potro netted a return.

Federer had a match point in the third set at 4-5, 30-40 but failed to take it, before Anderson broke in the following game to earn the opportunity to serve out the set.

Djokovic secured that game with a forehand victor, then saved two game points on Nishikori's serve before converting his first match point with a forehand down the line.

IDF Patriot missile shoots down Syrian drone over Sea of Galilee
On June 24, Israel's military said it launched a Patriot missile at an incoming drone from Syria, which turned away unscathed. Russia, another top key ally of Assad, has warned it would be unrealistic to expect Iran to fully withdraw from the country.

He looks very fired-up, he looks very motivated so I think Novak has got a great shot as well.' Analyzing how elbow issues influenced Djokovic's mental status, Murray added: 'He's spoken about that, he said the mental side has been hard for him. "Maybe things changed if I got the game. I think he was playing more aggressive and didn't give me any free points".

He next faces two-time champion Rafael Nadal or fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro in his first Grand Slam semifinal since the 2016 U.S. Open.

"I think the first warning was unnecessary", said Djokovic, who was sanctioned in the second set for spearing his racquet into the court.

"I didn't harm the grass, I know how I threw the racket".

After two years of physical and mental struggles, Djokovic appears fit and confident and ready to try to add to his tally of 12 grand slam titles. "In the midst of emotions in a tough match, it happens". That's all I can say'.

The 12-time Grand Slam champion then raised his level in the fourth set and finished with a victor into the corner to book his place in Friday's semi-finals where he was joined by a familiar foe as Nadal won through late in the day.
