Anderson v Isner: Battle of the giants

Share

I think I played really good tennis today.

Isner leads their head to head 8-3, and he has won their last five meetings; the last time Anderson turned the tables against his fellow flamethrower was in 2012.

Del Potro was thrashed by the Spaniard in the French Open semi-final last month but feels his game matches up better against the world number one on grass despite losing their only two meetings on the surface. After more than a year of trouble, Djokovic finally had surgery in February, then took a while to find his groove.

"It shows fantastic resilience that Kevin Anderson came from a two-set (deficit) to win the whole match".

Wimbledon 2018 has been nothing short of a spectacle so far.

Djokovic went on to dominate the game, winning nine more Grand Slams. It has dramatically boosted the sometimes fragile self-belief of one of the game's most amenable souls. "If I want to beat him, I have to come to the net very often and play hard with my forehands, with my backhands".

He lost to Nadal in last year's US Open. "There will be great feelings". That is a big thing.

While it's probably less likely you'll share a name with Swiss ace Federer, those who do are being offered a meal for themselves and one friend. He said the only time he has played on Centre Court was during the London Olympics, and admitted: "I have no clue what that court looks like".

Djokovic came into the Championships on the back of a frustrating year which was blighted by an elbow injury and saw him slide down the world rankings as a result.

Germany's Julia Goerges apologised after beating close friend Kiki Bertens to progress to the first semi-final of her career at Wimbledon. He's always like a big war for me. "I have to be ready". Of course, you will face the best players.

The Spaniard, past the fourth round at the All England Club for the first time since that 2011 final, knows exactly what he has to do.

"I think after each win throughout these 10 days, I've had a Kit Kat". I wanted to stay there for all night long.

In a statement, Xasa paid tribute to the right-hander, who went one step further than Wayne Ferreira did in 1994 by reaching the semi-finals, where he will face American ninth seed John Isner on Friday. It is timed for release as the anticipation crests with Roger as returning champion, 10 years after their famed 2008 Wimbledon championship - an epic match so close and so reflective of their competitive balance that, in the end, the true victor was the sport itself. "Physically I'm OK. That gives me confidence to keep going in the future".
