Del Potro sets up quarter-final showdown with Nadal

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will bid to reach the semi-finals of the same grand slam for the first time since the French Open six years ago at Wimbledon on Wednesday.

Here's all the latest news and results!

That mishap could not stop Nadal from reaching his sixth Wimbledon semi-final and he celebrated the moment by raising both arms up into the skies after four hours and 48 minutes of thrilling action.

Goerges had to do it the hard way after coming from a set down against the Dutch No.20 seed to win 3-6 7-5 6-1 and set up a showdown with the formidable Serena Williams.

Serbia's Novak Djokovic celebrates winning his quarter final match against Japan's Kei Nishikori.

"I'm like, "You don't have to be sorry".

"It´s not good for me". You really deserved this. "Physically I've felt awesome". "I'm not going to change that now", said the American. I tried to resist and maintain focus. It's never easy playing a friend.

"I think it was great quality tennis, the final set was there were some unbelievable points". It's an honour to play Serena. If Nadal gets off to a fast start, Djokovic could find himself struggling to believe that he's ready to win this type of match.

Federer was in command for the opening two sets, especially the first, with Anderson appearing overawed in his maiden Wimbledon quarter-final.

Ante Rebic and Ivan Rakitic were closely watched and it prevented them from having a decent effect on the game in the first half. First of all I'm so proud of this team and staff for giving everything we could over a long period of time together.

The world No. 1 battled back from two sets to one down against giant Argentine Juan Martin del Potro to win 7-5 6-7 4-6 6-4 6-4.

"In the last set there was a little of everything, great points, great rallies, he was hitting insane with his forehands".

He eventually finished off the world No.53 in the third tiebreak to move into his second Wimbledon quarter-final where twice champion Nadal is waiting.

Nadal had not lost a set prior to his first quarterfinal at the All England Club since 2011, but was taken the distance in an epic encounter between two warriors of the game.

Victory secured, Nadal climbed over the net and ran over to the baseline to help the distraught Del Potro back to his feet.

"I will try to hold my service games most of the time".

"I was close to beating him and I couldn´t because Rafa always has a little bit more than the rest of the players on tour".

Nadal and Djokovic will be meeting for the 52nd time in their career, with Djokovic leading their head-to-head 26-25.

It doesn't get much bigger than that, which means the question now becomes: Will such a titanic victory build Anderson's confidence, or will it lead to a letdown, as it has for so many others who have knocked off Federer at the Slams over the years?
