Djokovic In The Quarterfinals Of Wimbledon

Djokovic In The Quarterfinals Of Wimbledon”

Otherwise, Djokovic had little trouble eliminating 51st-ranked Adrian Mannarino of France 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 in a match postponed Monday night because of darkness. The Grand Slam supervisor and assistant referee didn't believe that there was either.

Wrapping up the women's quarter-finals, big-hitting Coco Vandeweghe from the United States will hope her new coach Pat Cash, a former Wimbledon champion, will give her the edge as she takes on Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova. That's what happen. Even like this, I think I played with the right determination, right passion, right attitude to win the match.

At break point, a deep forehand forced Djokovic into a strained backhand response, allowing Mannarino the space for a dropshot that the Serb could only turn into the net. Ostapenko was the 13th seed at Wimbledon after winning the French Open as an unseeded player earlier in the year.

The two past champions were wondering what sort of work could be done on the middle Sunday, when there is no competition, so the court conditions improve when action resumes with all 16 fourth-round singles matches scheduled for Monday.

The rain started at about 11:30 a.m.

The reigning champion has brushed off fears over a hip injury to make it serenely to this stage, coming out comfortably on top despite a test from Benoit Paire last time out, and Rafael Nadal falling from his side of the draw will have home fans dreaming of a third win here for the Scot.

Rybarikova, the lowest-ranked Wimbledon semifinalist since 2008, got past 24th-seeded CoCo Vandeweghe of the US 6-3, 6-3 in a match suspended at 2-all in the second set because of showers and moved from Court No. 1 to Centre Court so it could be finished indoors.

Djokovic, who will face Czech Tomas Berdych in the last eight, received treatment to his shoulder during a medical time-out late in the third set. But that moment seemed to galvanise Mannarino and he became more competitive, taking Djokovic to deuce on two of his service games, before the three-time champion closed out the set with a second break.

"I thought I raised the level of tennis", said Djokovic after making the second week without dropping a set.

Garbine Muguruza was playing Svetlana Kuznetsova in the women's quarterfinals. "The Centre Court has the roof and lights, we could have played till 23:00". He was to play Adrian Mannarino.

"To me, the Centre Court (was) really good, actually", Mannarino said.
