Djokovic also advanced to his first Grand Slam semifinal since 2016, shrugging off a second-set slump to beat Kei Nishikori 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2.

With Djokovic leading a 15-love game in the first set of their quarterfinal match on Wednesday, Nishikori pulled off what may be the shot of the tournament on a high lob from Djokovic that looked like it was going out.

He won the third set to snap Federer's 34-set winning streak at Wimbledon and Federer was clearly shaken as Anderson dominated the fourth set to drag the 20-time Grand Slam champion into a decider.

Federer had a match point in the third set at 4-5, 30-40 but failed to take it, before Anderson broke in the following game to earn the opportunity to serve out the set.

Djokovic overcame a series of rows with the chair umpire to record a 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2 victory over Japan's former US Open finalist.

With the Japanese serving to stay in the match, Djokovic wrapped things up after 2-1/2 hours on the first match point to secure his first Wimbledon semi-final since 2015.

It's a career-best number for him, his first time in the Top 10, with 690 points, also a career high. Afghanistan's Mohammad Nabi is second, while Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh is third.

The semi-final will be the 32nd of Djokovic's Grand Slam career but he has had to fight to get there.

The 12-time major victor prevailed despite picking up two code violations and accusing umpire Carlos Ramos of "double standards".

The 12-time Grand Slam champion then raised his level in the fourth set and finished with a victor into the corner to book his place in the semi-finals on Friday.

"I feel like I'm peaking at the right moment", declared the 12th seeded Serb after joining Americans John McEnroe and Pete Sampras in fourth place on the list of most Wimbledon semi-final appearances in the Open Era.

Djokovic copped a code violation for unsportsmanlike conduct after flinging his racquet into the grass behind the baseline in frustration early in the third set.

I am backing Croatia.I know who I would like to lift the trophy.

"So I think it's not fair but it is the way it is, in the mix of emotions and a tough match it happens".
