Del Potro sets up quarter-final showdown with Nadal

While Nadal hasn't really been off the scene at all, Djokovic is ending a string of five straight majors in which he didn't play a semifinal match - his longest such stretch since 2006. Djokovic has dropped only two sets all tournament.

Our recommended way to watch Nadal vs Djokovic online without cable is via Hulu Live TV with Wimbledon coverage.

The two have played some memorable matches over the years. "That's a big thing", said second seed Nadal.

Strokes of Genius is a world-class documentary capturing the historic 13-year rivalry between tennis icons Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Standing in his way is the considerable obstacle of the 12-time grand slam champion Djokovic, who has looked rejuvenated this fortnight after a hard couple of years.

Nadal and Djokovic will be meeting for the 52nd time in their career, with Djokovic leading their head-to-head 26-25.

"It is always a big challenge to face Novak".

"He is one of the more complex players that I ever saw on our sport". It is always a big test. "He's playing well. Only way to try to win it is play very well".

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.

The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are also responding to the scene. Donald Johnson told the newspaper he was 10 feet away from the crash when it struck his apartment building.

It will be the second Grand Slam final for Anderson, who reached the final of the US Open past year to Rafael Nadal. "I'm a different person, different player today", Djokovic said. "Hopefully I can maintain that". You know that you can't win against him if you don't play very well.

The Spaniard proved it with a daring chase-down attempt during his win over Juan Martin del Potro overnight, climbing into the stands after trying to reach a ball. I'd want in excess of [2.06] on Isner, in truth, but I'd much rather favour him at prices than Anderson, who obviously has the already-discussed negative of a long match against the tournament favourite in the last round, as well as losing their last five main tour head to head matches - albeit from a while ago.

He led 40-15 but both match points went begging.

It also followed a semi-final defeat to Nadal at the French Open last month where he won just seven games.

After claiming the first set by a single break, Nadal lost the next two by tight margins as Del Potro stole the show on Centre Court with acrobatic shot-making and a total of 33 aces behind his serve.

The other man's semi-final sees a battle between the South African Kevin Anderson and American John Isner who beat top-seeded Roger Federer and Canadian Milos Raonic respectively.

"I felt like it was getting better and better as time went on".

"But also putting myself in these positions where hopefully I'm able to get another step forward and be playing on Sunday". Djokovic has three Wimbledon titles while Nadal has two.
