Federer, who was bidding to extend his record eight men's titles, was ousted Wednesday by free-hitting Kevin Anderson, who battled back from a two-sets-to-none deficit.

The South African eighth seed saved a match point in the third set before fighting back to inflict Federer with just the fifth defeat from two sets up in an unparalleled 20-year, 1415-match career, 2-6 6-7 (5) 7-5 6-4 13-11.

On they went, both holding to love for 10-10, but at 11-11 it was Federer who blinked first, a double fault handing Anderson a rare break point which he converted.

Nishikori, playing in his first quarter-final at the All England Club, was bidding to become the first Japanese man to make the Wimbledon semi-finals in 85 years.

Anderson spurned the chance for another break when he rammed a forehand into the net and was forced to settle for a tiebreak after Federer recovered from 30-0 down in the final game of the set. When I'm doing that, I think I'm a very risky player.

This summit is shaping up as the most divisive in Nato's 69-year-old history. "I have great confidence they'll be spending more". That includes running numerous military bases, missile defense systems, training operations, and more.

In the first set of his round of 16 clash against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino, Federer had an opportunity to be playful with a dead ball that was bouncing towards him.

Federer won the first meeting 6-4, 6-4 at the Paris Masters indoor hard-court event in 2013; he won 7-5, 6-1 at Indian Wells in 2014; 6-3, 7-5 on the clay in Rome in 2015 and 6-1, 6-1 in Cincinnati later that year.

The three-time champion spoke to Serbian media after his straight sets victory over Khachanov and revealed he has put in a request to play on Centre Court, having played there only once in this year's tournament. "I probably won't have another 6-0 set this week, so I'll enjoy this one".

The 32-year-old, who reached last year's U.S. Open final, will face either Milos Raonic or John Isner in the semis. "Beating Roger Federer here at Wimbledon will be one I remember, especially in such a close match", Anderson said.

Nishikori, who had won only two matches in 15 meetings with the 12-time major victor, broke for 1-0 in the fourth but was broken straight back.

But the big-serving and obdurate Anderson was undaunted by the situation, staying alive before turning the tide in his favor, preventing Federer from breaking his own record for consecutive sets won at SW19.

Later, Ramos warned Djokovic for a time violation, but that didn't seem to faze the Serb.

Djokovic is a three-time victor at Wimbledon, having won the title in 2011, 2014 and 2015.
