Their most recent Grand Slam semi-final meet also saw World No. 2 prevail and eventually win Roland Garros 2019.

"It's remarkable that it has been 11 years since they've played each other at Wimbledon", Wertheim said.

Where is Novak Djokovic vs Roberto Bautista Agut taking place? .

He told PA: "The only player I know is Serena so obviously I will be looking forward to watching her play - we wish there were some English stars but maybe another year".

Djokovic, who became the fourth man in the Open era to play 70 matches at Wimbledon, did to Goffin exactly what he does to so many opponents on so many surfaces and at so many tournaments: He takes their best shot, deals with it and then wears them down.

"Roger is unbelievable", said Nadal, who at least prevented Federer from becoming the first man since Bjorn Borg in 1976 to go through the whole tournament without dropping a set.

None of those three, however, made it past Wimbledon's first round this year.

With the threat of darkness forcing a postponement overnight - the roof was not installed on Centre Court until the following year - Nadal claimed the crucial break to win 9-7 in the decider after four hours and 48 minutes.

Bautista Agut, 31, booked his first appearance in a Slam last-four at the 27th attempt by seeing off Pella, who had never previously reached a quarter-final at the majors. Nadal should want Federer to, figuratively of course, come roll aroudn in the dirt with him.

"Well, because he is very solid from baseline", said Bautista Agut.

Federer said he has been feeling particularly good lately.

Nadal's victory kept alive his hopes of emulating Bjorn Borg in winning the French Open and Wimbledon titles back to back three times. "He likes to play a lot of rallies", Bautista Agut said. I'd love to play against him here at Wimbledon. However, Roger Federer reveals that he will treat this high-voltage match like every other match.

Yet the remainder of the match had just enough flourishes of pure brilliance from the eight times champion and number two seed to make it a worthy occasion for the Swiss to become the sole male member of the Grand Slam 100 club. Yeah, a hundred wins here at Wimbledon. Part of what makes Federer so dominant on grass is the rhythm with which he plays-those quick, 45-second holds are an absolute essential part of the Federer on Grass experience.

Nishikori visibly wilted, saving two break points in the fifth game of the fourth set before fatally cracking in the ninth.

Nadal defeated American Sam Querrey in one quarterfinal Wednesday.

This should be an outstanding tennis match since Federer and Nadal are two of the greatest in the game.
