Roger Federer Bows Out Of Wimbledon In Thrilling Circumstances

"That was a great performance from my side". South Africa's Kevin Anderson celebrates after winning his quarter final match against Switzerland's Roger Federer.

Anderson, the eighth seed, knocked off the eight-time champion 2-6, 5-7, 7-5, 6-4, 13-11. And he had held serve 81 games in a row at the grass-court major, a streak that grew to 85 before Anderson broke him a surprising total of four times.

And it was Federer who blinked, double-faulting to face a break point at 11-all, then slapping a forehand into the net to cede the key break. It was a match Federer could, probably should, have won and yet he will now leave here wondering - probably like everyone else - how many more chances he will get to add to his eight Wimbledon titles.

"It's disappointing losing the next two sets after winning the first two and having match points", said Federer.

Novak Djokovic's clash against Kei Nishikori went more to script and saw the Serb advance to his first Grand Slam semi-final in nearly two years following a confident 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 win.

What many business people are hoping of course, is that this sound and fury is just the start of another series of negotiations. Trade wars can draw blood in several ways. "You tax soybean exports at 25-percent, and you have serious damage to USA farmers".

They were playing on Court No. 1 - Federer's first match away from Centre Court since the same stage of the tournament in 2015.

The Ottawa native and partner Yifan Xu of China, the tournament's sixth seeds, defeated the unseeded pair of Bethaine Mattek-Sands of the USA, and Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 in a quarter-final on Wednesday.

No. 12 Novak Djokovic vs. "It feels great to make the last four of a Slam again". We are not talking about already that I played a final or I won the tournament. "I have been building over the last couple of weeks, and the level of tennis I have played in the last couple of months felt like it was getting better and better and I feel like I am peaking at the right moment".

But the 31-year-old wasn't happy with Carlos Ramos, accusing the the Spanish official of "double standards" during an ongoing battle in the two-hour, 35-minute encounter.

When Anderson broke in the second set it was the first time the Swiss had dropped serve at this Wimbledon. Kei did the same in the fourth set but wasn't warned.

'I don't think it really mattered, to be honest. "I don't know how long it's going to take me [to get over it]" he said.
