Rafael Nadal feels 'sorry' for Roger Federer after shock Wimbledon exit

Rafael Nadal Wimbledon

Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic is a matchup that brings a lot of memories.

Two-time champion Rafael Nadal outlasted Juan Martin del Porto in a match that lasted almost five hours in the Wimbledon quarterfinals Wednesday in London.

Of all of Djokovic's skills, the one that separated him the most was his return. Not only is he advancing to the first Grand Slam semifinal of his career at Wimbledon, he and his wife, Highland Park native Madison McKinley, are expecting their first baby girl.

The six-hour match was the ultimate display of physical excellence as both traded blows in high-quality rallies for five sets of jaw-dropping tennis. Djokovic, a 12-time major champ whose resume includes three trophies at the All England Club, advanced earlier Wednesday with a four-set victory over Kei Nishikori that didn't require almost as much energy or effort as what followed on Centre Court.

Where is the Wimbledon 2018 Novak Djokovic vs Rafael Nadal semi-final match? Since 2013, Djokovic has generally had the upper hand on Nadal, winning 11 of their 14 meetings.

"Just feel sorry for him and congrats to Kevin".

For his part, Djokovic is eyeing a 13th major after making the semifinals of a Slam for the first time since finishing runner-up at the 2016 US Open.

World number one Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion at the All England Club, trails Djokovic, the 2011, 2014 and 2015 victor, 26-25 in a rivalry which began at Roland Garros 12 years ago.

Djokovic was looking for his first victory against Nadal on clay.

I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on.

Nadal is more than aware of the threat he poses. "I have a tough work having Juan Martin in front".

"But my goal is to try to play very well".

We are so happy to hear that our son is out of the cave and to welcome him home. "We wish you the best for this very tough time". Heavy rains had flooded the Tham Luang cave blocking the football team in after they first entered on June 23.


"It's always is a big challenge face Novak", Nadal said.

"I know he's playing very well", the Spaniard said.

"But is impossible to win always, even for him". He has one Slam final appearance in that span. At the end of this day, analyse things that I've done right. "I tried to resist and maintain focus". And not get ahead of myself too much. I've been through that.

Djokovic is no fool. The victor will get a chance to play at the biggest stage in tennis.

John Isner has won the second set against Kevin Anderson 7-6 (5) to level their Wimbledon semifinal at 1-1. Djokovic will have to beat the most relentless competitor on the planet.
