Wimbledon is obviously a very special tournament: Djokovic

Djokovic, victor of three singles titles at the All England Club, will next meet Japan's 24th seed Kei Nishikori. "He's got weapons, a big first serve and a big forehand, but I managed to get serves back and make him play another shot", he added.

A year after his 2017 fourth round match was postponed by 24 hours into what is a designated "rest day" for the men, he narrowly avoided suffering the same fate again. "Sometimes that's what you need to, I guess, be more alert on the court".

Anger and cutting a disconsolate figure has been a running theme for Djokovic at Wimbledon this year.

" I thought it was unnecessary to get the warning".

Kei Nishikori bowed out of Wimbledon on Wednesday after losing to Novak Djokovic 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 in the quarterfinals.

'I didn't harm the grass. "The big challenge for me after surgery was to be comfortable with the change of racquet, and the different compensations that I made in the motion of my serve", said the Serb, who asked for some modifications to be made to his Head Graphene Touch.

Khachanov's display was flashy but full of errors, and Djokovic was ruthless in punishing them, coming through 6-4 6-2 6-2 to set up a last-eight meeting with Kei Nishikori.

Queen Elizabeth missed on Monday the christening ceremony of Prince Louis , the third child of Britain's Prince William . While many famous royal faces will gather for Prince Louis' christening today, Queen Elizabeth II won't be one of them.

A year ago, officials refused to move Djokovic's match with Adrian Mannarino on to Centre even though the court sat empty, while on Monday they opted to give priority to a mixed doubles encounter once Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal had all swiftly booked their quarter-final berths.

After a slump following two years of nearly total domination of the men's game, Djokovic's star appears to be back on the rise and he is a clear contender to win a fourth Wimbledon title.

It will be Djokovic's first semifinal Wimbledon appearance since 2015.

"It took me two or three months and that was frustrating that I wasn't able to perform the game that I was used to and the level of tennis I wanted to play".

The pair traded breaks of serve in the opening set before Djokovic broke in the seventh game, carving out the opportunity to serve for the set. Beating Roger Federer at Wimbledon is one I will remember. The two began dating long before Djokovic became a household name, and got married in Montenegro in 2014 right after he won Wimbledon.

'I feel if I have to compare the game that I've played, the level of tennis that I've had those years and today, I think it's pretty close, ' said the 31-year-old. It was a step up in momentum that Nishikori momentarily halted with a break at the start of the fourth, but Djokovic then returned the favour and closed out the match.
