Novak Djokovic plays Adrian Mannarino ahead women's quarter-final action

Novak Djokovic plays Adrian Mannarino ahead women's quarter-final action

She will face American Venus Williams. In the other match, Rybarikova was leading 6-3, 2-2 when rain halted play.

Djokovic hopes to make the semifinals of a grand slam for the 11th time since 2014. However, Svetlana Kuznetsova wasn't so sure something nefarious wasn't going on in the stands with her quarterfinal opponent, Garbine Muguruza, and the Spaniard's coach.

Djokovic, however, has three titles at the Grand Slam to go along with his other nine Grand Slam singles wins. Federer produced a straightforward 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4) victory over Milos Raonic, the man who beat him in last year's semifinals.

Grimacing at times from pain in his right arm, Djokovic gritted through physical challenges and left-hander Adrian Mannarino, 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4, advancing to his 39th career Grand Slam quarterfinal.

Djokovic needed treatment on his elbow at the end of the first set and was already dealing with a long-term right shoulder problem. His groundstrokes have been looking rock solid over the fortnight, even after his shoulder appeared to be troubling him late in the Mannarino match.

Novak Djokovic has admitted that he is considering a break away from tennis, after he retired injured in his Wimbledon quarter-final match against Tomas Berdych.

On No. 1 Court, Gilles Muller will be first against Marin Cilic. Having in mind that Centre Court has the roof and lights, we could have played till 11.

The Russian team played an overwhelming advantage throughout the match, creating a huge number of unsafe moments. He said: "As far as discussions are concerned I will not think about them until the end of the tournament".

Novak Djokovic has issued another damning assessment of the quality of surfaces at Wimbledon in 2017, describing the courts as "not that great" after pointing out a hole on Centre Court.

Under the roof on Centre Court, a feverish home crowd witnessed history as Johanna Konta became the first British woman to reach the Wimbledon semifinal since Virginia Wade in 1978.

But now the 31-year-old is through to his second successive Wimbledon semi-final, where he will go up against seven-times champion Federer. I don't see any reason why not.

Following an opening set that saw Berdych win all but two of his first-serve points, Djokovic was clearly in distress and felt he was unable to continue.

But he's won three straight five-setters.

Bosses at the All-England Club caused controversy by refusing to move the Serb's fourth round tie to the vacant Centre Court, where play could have continued until 11pm.

Mannarino said: "I mean, I was a little bit - to me, it was quite unusual in the beginning of the match, because I felt like I was running in a different way".
