Djokovic, a three-time victor of Wimbledon, has played just one of his four matches on Centre this year but will return to the main court on Wednesday when he faces Kei Nishikori.

That year Federer beat Gilles Simon on No. 1 Court in the quarterfinals. Even if I played, I was not able to compete with the knees the way I had.

Meanwhile, Nadal will face off against Juan Martin del Potro; Federer will play Kevin Anderson and Djokovic will play Kei Nishikori.

"I think she said, "I'm sorry", Bertens said.

Rafael Nadal is in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011.

Twelve months ago, his last-16 match with Adrian Mannarino, also scheduled for Court One, was cancelled despite Centre Court with its retractable roof being available. You're talking about Federer, who has won 20 of these grand slams.

On No. 1 Court, three-time champion Novak Djokovic faces Karen Khachanov of Russian Federation.

Federer was forced to save three break points in the eighth game of the third set.

Federer, the defending champion, has been his usual dominant self.

However, Williams lifted her intensity to level, before closing out the match to move a step closer to reclaiming the title she won in 2016. The seventh-seeded player was defeated by Kiki Bertens 6-3 7-6. This is Djokovic's second consecutive Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Anderson, 32, is one of the biggest servers on tour and the hot conditions are helping his game, however, the 2017 US Open finalist has never taken a set off Federer in four previous meetings.

The 52nd-ranked Giorgi of Italy took the first set 6-3.

"But, sure, I was also surprised it was that fast, that first set, especially 16 minutes".

The Serb has played twice on the 11,000-capacity Court One this year but was shunted off to the 4,000-seater Court Two for his second round clash against Horacio Zeballos.

He beat Frenchman Gael Monfils for the first time in six attempts and in doing so reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the first time - at the 10th attempt.

But the 23-time major winner's blistering form and a series of shock results have paved the way for another Williams coronation at Wimbledon.

He looked flat as he was broken to trail 1-3 but he clawed his way back to lead 5-4 with his serve to come.

Jelena Ostapenko became the first Latvian woman to reach a Wimbledon semifinal with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Dominika Cibulkova.

The next two games went with serve and the match was well into its fifth hour when the tiebreak began.

Like his great rival Federer, Nadal has cruised through to the last eight without dropping a set.

When Novak Djokovic came off No 1 Court after a quick, nearly angry three-set win over the young Russian Karen Khachanov on Monday evening, he made it clear he was sick of being parked outside the tournament'sshowpiece arena, having also tested the grass of No 2 Court in the second round, after just one match on Centre Court, against Kyle Edmund.
