Japan's Nishikori beats out-of-sorts Kyrgios to reach last 16

Centre Court crowd

LONDON-Kei Nishikori overcame elbow trouble in the opening set to win a marathon match 4-6 7-6 (5) 7-6 (10) 6-1 against a limping Ernests Gulbis and reach his first Wimbledon quarter-final at the tenth attempt on Monday.

Neither the crowd nor a big mistake by the umpire could unglue Djokovic, though, as the three-time champion won 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 to reach the round of 16 for the 11th time. "I asked him. So, yes, it was quite a unusual decision from (the) chair umpire, but it happens". I always find it tough playing him.

Djokovic has only recently returned from injury and Nishikori understands his struggles. "It's always big challenge", he said. I just think it's not necessary.

Nishikori, runner-up at the 2014 U.S. Open, won the Court Two match on the second match point in the following game when Gulbis, now limping badly, hit a return long.

Or being by turns self-reflective and sarcastic during the news conference afterward, including when a reporter noted that Kyrgios' tennis career has featured some complicated moments - a euphemism if ever there was one - and he shot a sideways glance toward his agent, smiled wryly and replied, "Have I?" Everything kind of just went south, I guess. I kind of panicked a little bit.

Djokovic's match against Nishikori will fall on the first anniversary of him having to retire from his 2017 quarterfinal against Tomas Berdych with an elbow injury. She said he was "just not good enough to win a grand slam", and it was "pathetic" to see the 23-year-old and Monfils failing to apply themselves in the right way. "I think I need some recovery for it, maybe two, three weeks", Gulbis said.

"I think you feel more, not angry, but eager to play your best".

Djokovic's run to the Queen's final on the eve of Wimbledon was his first appearance in a championship match since Eastbourne nearly 12 months earlier. I haven't spent too much time on the court. That was a boost after a shock quarterfinal exit at the French Open to World No. 72 Marco Cecchinato of Italy. "I just struggled with a lot of things today", he said. Indian Wells, Miami, most of the clay-court season.

"I just had to go back to basics and hit as many balls as I can on the practice courts, just get that feel". Also psychologically obviously, I was so fortunate to have so much success on the tour over the course of 10-plus years.

"I was a top 3 player for so many years in a row - it was quite a unusual feeling for me not to be able to deliver my game". Everybody does. 'He has a good team around him, people who know how to work, who know what to give him, these extra things.
