Roger Federer, Serena Williams speak about many seeds losing at Wimbledon

They roared for Roger Federer just for showing up, greeting his arrival at Wimbledon's main stadium as if his mere presence were enough to justify the price of admission. "After the first set, I just said, 'Let's go three sets.' I just kept fighting". "Everybody has the same chances to win that match, and I'm looking forward to it".

"Not really", said Federer, the No. 1 seed. "I was just trying to push myself until the limits actually". Serena Williams, who lost a set for the first time at this year's Wimbledon, came back to win the final two sets 6-3, 6-4.

Was Mannarino intimidated by playing in that hallowed arena? I was not thinking too much about the match points.

Once Williams had figured out how to break the Giorgi serve, though, in the fourth game of the second set, the momentum changed.

The Argentine was in danger of being dragged into a fifth set when he squandered four match points, one with a double-fault, at 5-4 having hit back from 1-3 down. But Tendulkar made it clear that he first needed help with Federer's signature backhand shot and only then he would teach the maestro how to play the straight drive. "I don't think I could do that", she said.

Following Pliskova's exit, No. 11 Angelique Kerber is the highest remaining seed in the women's draw.

Having crashed out in the first round at Wimbledon for five consecutive times, Goerges' emotions spilled over at the end of the match after she embraced Bertens at the net. No. 20 Kiki Bertens.

Two-time grand slam victor Angelique Kerber faces 2017 French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko in the other semifinal after the pair downed Daria Kasatkina 6-3 7-5 and Dominika Cibulkova 7-5 6-4, respectively. I'm doing a lot of the right things. As you may have seen from my comment on the previous post I was lucky enough to watch this one live on Centre so this is a slightly different format here as I didn't take any notes to do a quick match recap but my thoughts are Fed looked top class.

"I'm just here just to be here, and to prove that I'm back", Williams added.

On the bottom half of the bracket, it'll be 12-time major champion Djokovic against 2014 U.S. Open runner-up Kei Nishikori, and No. 2 seed Nadal against either 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro or Gilles Simon.

In a match suspended from Monday night due to darkness with the Argentine star two sets to one ahead, Del Potro sealed victory on a fifth match point after nearly four and a half hours of action on Court Two.

During his first set, Federer's unique style of shot catching Wimbledon's attention leading it to be dubbed as an nearly "cricket" style with their Twitter account asking the ICC to rate Federer's shot.

For Nadal, this marks a return. I don't feel pressure; I don't feel like I have to win this.
