Roger Federer stopped in Wimbledon quarterfinals by South African Kevin Anderson



He's been flashing some anger this fortnight and did so again in the second set, bouncing his racket off the turf after failing to capitalise on three break points at one set all. I had moments where I was great, I felt like I was reading his serve, other moments where I don't know where the hell I was moving to. To be honest, I didn't feel mental fatigue. "It was just happened to be that today wasn't the day". However, he fell once, this time in a 7-6 tiebreaker, to fall behind two sets to none.

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will bid to reach the semi-finals of the same grand slam for the first time since the French Open six years ago at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

The 20-times grand slam champion blew a third-set match point before succumbing 2-6 6-7 (5-7) 7-5 6-4 13-11 to big-serving South African Kevin Anderson in a four-hour, 14-minute quarter-final thriller on Tuesday.

But after failing to convert a match point in the third set, Federer allowed a rash of errors to creep into his game, particularly on the forehand side.

"I've been there before". I know what kind of energy I need to bring to the fifth. I was able to bring that. "Now I feel horribly tired and just very bad", Federer said. Now I feel horribly worn out and just bad.

Nadal reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon for the first time since 2011 after defeating Jiri Vesely in a 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 victory on Monday.

"It motivates me to do extremely well here because I don't want to sit here and explain my loss".

Those Trump-voting states are all home to Democratic senators who will face intense pressure to support the President's nominee. However, Trump told Fox Business Network he would "probably not" ask candidates specifically about the case.

Our recommended way to watch Roger Federer online without cable is via Hulu Live TV with Wimbledon coverage. You have to have that mindset.

"He's not going to stay around forever but there's no reason for him not to come back one more year at least".

Djokovic is back in the locker room and he will be saying "thank you very much".

Even the ICC got involved, temporarily ranking Federer as the world's leading Test batsman.

From there, the tall and powerful Anderson kicked on whilst Federer stalled.

What an upset. This one had a taste of an easy victory after the first two sets. And he had held serve 81 games in a row at the grass-court major, a streak that grew to 85 before Anderson broke him a surprising total of four times.

It seemed the longer it went on the more aggressive he became and better he played at the end. He may well pause to take stock of a journey that started in Johannesburg with him gleaning as much knowledge as possible from global tennis magazines, cutting out articles on the sport's greatest rivalries, while pouring over the Grand Slams whenever they were broadcast on South African television.
