Novak Djokovic has lamented more 'unfair' treatment at Wimbledon

Djokovic dodged a bullet
'It feels great to be in the last four of a slam - I've been buiding on the last couple of weeks and the level of tennis I've played in the last couple of months, last couple of tournaments of the clay-court tournaments and Queen's, it kind of felt like it was getting better and better.
The No. 12 seed grew into the match and showed more shades of his old stamina that led him to Grand Slam triumphs, and he'll next face either Rafael Nadal or Juan Martin del Potro, who meet later on Wednesday.
Three times champion Novak Djokovic roared back after dropping the second set to beat Japan's Kei Nishikori 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2 and reach his eighth Wimbledon semi-final. I like the level of tennis that I'm playing right now, I really do'.
Having broken Nishikori early in the first set, 21st-ranked Djokovic went on to surrender his subsequent serve with a double fault at break point, and Nishikori served to draw even at 3-3. "I think with the performances I've had, I deserve to be in the semifinals. Be honest." the Serb exclaimed, shaking his head. He last featured in the semi final of 2016 US Open.
But having become the first Japanese man to reach the quarter-finals since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995, Nishikori must now overturn a 13-2 career losing record against three-time champion Djokovic on Wednesday.
The vital break arrived in fourth game and the Serb consolidated for a 4-1 advantage. "He's always like a big war for me". Like Djokovic, Nishikori does things on his own terms - he walks between points, scuffing his feet, and on receiving balls ahead of serve, if the distribution was slightly off he would not take a step left nor right to collect it.
"I just had to go back to the basics and just try to get comfortable with my game and try to gain as much confidence as possible through match play". I was top 3 player for so many years in a row, it was quite a odd feeling for me not to be able to deliver my game.
The match saw a lot of swings in momentum, but it was Djokovic winning 10 of the last 12 games to seal the victory.
"It was just one of those days where you hope to get by somehow", said Federer, who last played at No. 1 Court in 2015. "I didn't harm the grass", he said. "I don't like that", he said. Like past year, I received the information that they can't reschedule my match on the other court because of the tickets that are presold.
