Kevin Anderson rallied from two sets down to shock Roger Federer 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11 and move into the Wimbledon 2018 semi-finals on Wednesday after a four-hour war on Court No. 1.

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.

Federer won the first meeting 6-4, 6-4 at the Paris Masters indoor hard-court event in 2013; he won 7-5, 6-1 at Indian Wells in 2014; 6-3, 7-5 on the clay in Rome in 2015 and 6-1, 6-1 in Cincinnati later that year.

Djokovic is a three-time victor at Wimbledon, having won the title in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

During his Wimbledon fourth-round victory over Adrian Mannarino on Monday, with the ball having already been called out, Federer played a stroke that was more akin to cricket than tennis.

The 2017 US Open finalist will meet Canada's Milos Raonic or American John Isner in his first SW19 semi-final.

Another alternative to watch Wimbledon matches featuring Roger Federer live and free is to try out the FuboTV 7-day free trial which means you can check it out without any obligation to buy.

For the first time in three years the Swiss maestro will play a match away from his beloved Centre Court lawn after organisers pencilled him in for a Court One slot.


The world number one and two-time former champion said: "Of course it's an important result for me".

"It just wasn't one of my best days", Federer, who won the first set in 26 minutes, told reporters.

"Just today, when I needed it, I couldn't get it up". It all started with Wimbledon's official Twitter handle tagging the International Cricket Council (ICC) on a post which had Federer playing what looked like a forward-defensive cricket stroke during his third-round match at the ongoing Wimbledon Championships.

It is the second time that 20-times Grand Slam champion Federer has lost at Wimbledon from two sets ahead, suffering the same fate against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2011 quarter-finals.

"It would take an unbelievable serving performance and for Roger had a bad serving day to cause an upset". This will be Djokovic's first semifinal at a major since the 2016 French Open when he completed the career Grand Slam.

"I think I had chances, I'm not sure exactly how many".

"I don't think it really mattered, to be honest".

On they went, both holding to love for 10-10, but at 11-11 it was Federer who blinked first, a double fault handing Anderson a rare break point which he converted.
