Novak Djokovic v/s Kevin Anderson, Wimbledon Final

Top five epic matches between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic

Moments later, he got to love-40 before Nadal took five points in a row to serve out the set. "I was not a spectator, but I think was a great show for the fans", said Nadal, who said he spent his time Friday waiting for Isner and Anderson finish by putting golf balls. "Somebody has to win". "For us to be out there for this length of time - I mean not just on us coming back, trying to compete at this sort of stage, going through this - It's happened to John before, when he has played another five hours". What is the point of pushing physical limits in a match that will anyway be decided by the smallest of margin?

"I'm just overwhelmed", Djokovic told BBC Sport.

Djokovic, meanwhile, is seeking a 5th final at the All England Club and 22nd at the Slams.

Novak Djokovic was understandably emotional as he gave a post-match interview immediately after booking his place in Sunday's final.

Twelfth seed Djokovic resumed two sets to one ahead after snatching a third-set tiebreak the previous night before Wimbledon's 11pm curfew left the match on a knife edge.

Only the U.S. Open has a tiebreaker fifth-set format. Both wore a white baseball hat, Anderson with the brim in front, Isner with his turned his backward. Both men fought tooth and nail before Anderson prevailed 26-24 in the fourth set.

The 12-time grand slam victor, who will face Anderson in Sunday's men's singles final at the All England Club, says those battles played out in his head after the win.

Arsenal transfer rumours: Lucas Torreira, Andre Gomes, Ever Banega and Jack Wilshere
La Celeste lost 2-0 to France on Friday, and the team will be heading home, but he will not be joining them straight away. The good news for Gunners fans is that there is "no suggestion" that Arsenal are looking to sell the 32-year-old.

Suffering from pain in his back, ribs and cramping legs, Novak Djokovic was face-down beside the court in Arthur Ashe Stadium, getting treatment. That's 48 minutes more than any player's total at the World Cup this past month. "He's been gone for two years and needed that match to make this year important". Just like we may know rationally that new fault lines discovered under London are likely to cause a major tremor once every 1,000 years, we don't really think it will ever happen.

Isner labeled Wimbledon his "house of horrors" ever since that Mahut epic. The Centre Court roof was closed so that the players could continue to play under the lights.

The 2018 Wimbledon men's final will be broadcasted in the US exclusively on ESPN. Although ranked 8th in the world by the ATP, my Elo ratings only view him as the 16th-best male professional, and looking only at his grass form sees him drop further to 36th-best.

The three-time champion had a tiny bit more than Nadal at the end and grabbed the crucial break of serve at 9-8 up to close out another phenomenal match.

This has been a career year for Isner.

Anderson was so exhausted, he didn't have the energy to actually celebrate what is, till now, the biggest win of his career.

The last men's semifinal to be finished on Saturday was in 2007, also between Nadal and Djokovic. Anderson, who came into the last-four clash as the man who broke the Roger Federer serve for the first time in the Swiss' 2018 campaign, appeared to have lost some sting on his own serve in the third, while Isner, who was running away with games on his deliveries, seemed to have the edge.
