Wimbledon 2018 -- Juan Martin del Potro reaches quarterfinals
It will be the second Grand Slam final for Anderson, who reached the final of the US Open previous year to Rafael Nadal. Eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer was knocked out in the quarter-finals by an inspired Kevin Anderson, who came back from two sets down and a match point down to send the no. 1 seed packing.
It's unclear at this stage if Djokovic and Nadal will even get on court, with Isner and Anderson showing no signs of finishing any time soon and locked at 21-21 in the fifth set at the time of writing.
- The victor between Kevin Anderson and John Isner will go second on the Open era list for most attempts before reaching the Wimbledon final behind Marin Cilic, who set the record past year after reaching the final on his 11th Wimbledon appearance.
With the players tied at 16-16 in the deciding set, they had gone past the 5 hours, 31 minutes that a third-round match between Sam Querrey and Marin Cilic took in 2012.
Along the way, they have fought out a series of classic and epic battles including Djokovic's 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-5 Australian Open final victory in 2012.
