Nadal had not dropped a set at the tournament until the quarter-finals where he fought back to defeat Juan Martindel Potro 7-5, 6-7 (7/9), 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday.
The Spaniard will face Novak Djokovic in the last four for a chance to meet either John Isner or Kevin Anderson in the final. "I've put myself in with hopefully a shot to be playing again on Sunday". I tried to resist, maintaining focus. Nadal is through to a Grand Slam semi-final for the fifth time since turning 30 while Djokovic has reached the last-four at a major for the first time since his 30th birthday.

In the next set, Del Potro broke and served for the set at 5-4, but double-faulted and Nadal clinched the break-back with a forehand victor down the line for the second set to be decided by a tiebreaker. However, Nadal made a strong comeback in the second set to win it 7-5.
With the Wimbledon lawns baked and playing more bouncy than usual after a long spell of hot weather in London, it could be the 29-year-old's best chance to stop Nadal's impressive run.
Nadal lost only eight points behind his serve in the opening set, but Del Potro needed only one break point to take a 5-4 lead in the second.
A fearless effort from Isner but it is Anderson who will reach the final.
