Nadal-Djokovic semifinal suspended after third set

Nadal-Djokovic semifinal suspended after third set

6-4, 26-24 victory that lasted more than six hours, Anderson advances to the Wimbledon Final on Sunday, when he will play the victor of the other semifinal between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

The show being put on by Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal was so good it could have been an instant classic had they been able to finish their semifinal before the tournament's 11 p.m. curfew.

However, a semi-final of two big servers is not likely to capture the imagination much - it is unlikely to be a flashy display of tennis, but it should move quite quickly along, although let's hope we don't get into a five-setter as this is the first match on (Centre Court roof, notwithstanding).

Having spent close to 11 hours on-court in his last two matches, he has earned his place in a second Grand Slam final in under a year - a chance to avenge his 2017 U.S. Open loss to Nadal could be in the offing.

The game dragged on for a total of six hours and 36 minutes, with the final set alone taking two hours and 54 minutes.

It was a case of better late than never as Kevin Anderson reached his first Wimbledon final with a heart-stopping 7-6 (6) 6-7 (5) 6-7 (9) 6-4 26-24 win over the sport's perennial ultra marathon man John Isner on Friday. That's also the a year ago Djokovic and Nadal met at the All-England Club, with Djokovic winning 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 in the final. They both serve like demons, and don't return serves particularly well.

Almost three punishing hours later they both left Centre Court with their title hopes still intact.

By the time the fourth set had begun, it was clear that this match, as some regarded it, was no warm-up act for the Nadal-Djokovic semifinal to be played later on the same court - not a starter for the main course.

In the biggest upset of this year's Wimbledon Championship, Anderson beat world number one Federer in a sprawling five-set epic lasting four hours and 14 minutes. South African-born Kevin Curren contested the 1985 final but he had become a US citizen by then.

Anderson won, 6-7, 7-6, 7-6, 4-6, 26-24, in a semifinal that lasted 6 hours, 35 minutes.

Numerous best points came in the tiebreaker, including a 23-shot rally that Nadal finished off with a forehand half-volley drop shot to set up his first set point.

Anderson had a break point at 7-7 and at 10-10, but he missed the first one as Isner hit an ace and the second one as he mishit a backhand. Djokovic owns 12 Slam trophies, three from Wimbledon.
