Djokovic into 10th Wimbledon quarter-final

Novak Djokovic reveals what was his best match in career

The three-time champion swept past Kei Nishikori with a ruthless, and sometimes fiery, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory on Centre Court.

Nishikori initially stayed with his opponent and hit back in another superb game, but a wild backhand late on handed Djokovic the first set.

He then failed to convert three crucial break opportunities on Djokovic's serve at 2-2 in the third set, giving away the game and then his next two serves to hand the Serb his second set.

The 12-time major victor defeated Kei Nishikori 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 on Centre Court to set up a clash on Friday with either world No 1 Rafael Nadal or Juan Martin del Potro. 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.

But with Mueller still investigating, it's not known whether further indictments are taking shape or will. Mr Rosenstein said: "We know that the goal of the conspirators was to have an impact on the election".

"It motivates me to do extremely well here because I don't want to sit here and explain my loss. He's one of the best players on the tour". "I said today is going to be my day".

Scot Murray, 32 - who triumphed here a year ago alongside Martina Hingis - and former singles world No.1 Azarenka moved into the quarter-finals with a 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 win over Matwe Middelkoop and Johanna Larsson.

It also helps that Roger Federer was knocked out by Kevin Anderson in five dramatic sets, 2-6, 6-7 (5), 7-5, 6-4, 13-11.

However Djokovic seems to have rediscovered the old fire that powered him to 12 Grand Slam titles and responded well to being pulled back to level sets, tearing through the last two high-quality sets to take the match 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2. I know, as everything in life, we are evolving. I didn't harm the grass. Nishikori, who did the same thing in the fourth set, didn't receive one. Djokovic last appeared in the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2015, when he won. "In the midst of emotions in a tough match, it happens". "Sometimes that's what you need to, I guess, be more alert on the court".

England hailed as heroes after World Cup heartache
Our physical performance coach has tried to keep refreshing the warm-ups for the players and keep them stimulated. Domagoj Vida and Mario Mandzukic let the young ones join in the post-match celebrations on the Luzhniki pitch.

'I feel like I'm peaking at the right moment.

'It feels great to be in the last four of a slam - I've been buiding on the last couple of weeks and the level of tennis I've played in the last couple of months, last couple of tournaments of the clay-court tournaments and Queen's, it kind of felt like it was getting better and better. I haven't spent too much time on the court.

And then, slowly, over the next two-plus hours, all the way until the fifth set reached its 24th game, as the temperature dropped and the spectators' cries of "Let's go, Roger!" echoed through the shadows, everything came apart for the eight-time champion.
