Wimbledon Highlights, Men’s semi-finals: Wimbledon men’s semi-finals began at 5.30 PM IST and even with the clock ticking 3.30 AM on Saturday morning, the two matches were yet to be completed. Kevin Anderson and John Isner stretched each other and pushed each other to the brink before the South Africa prevailed in six hours and 35 minutes for the second longest match at Wimbledon where he won 26-24 in the fifth set. In the second semi-final, with an eye on the 11 PM curfew clock, Djokovic took a two sets to one lead over Rafael Nadal. Play will resume at 5.30 PM IST at Centre Court under the roof before the women’s singles final between Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber gets underway.
John Isner and Kevin Anderson are on Centre Court, competing for a place in the Wimbledon final. Their rivalry is a unique one as it dates back to the college days. The duo have competed against each other 11 times as pros - but never on the big stage. Reflecting on the battle, Isner said, "There could be a little mental aspect in our match. I say that because our rivalry, what have you, goes back way before the pro tour. We played each other in college probably three, four, five times. We played each other a bunch on the pro tour". Isner, who is yet to drop serve at the tournament, has hit 160 aces compared to Anderson's 123.
