Djokovic advances to Wimbledon final 16

In Friday's semifinals, Querrey will face either 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic or 16th-seeded Gilles Muller, who beat Rafael Nadal in the fourth round.

Three-time champion Novak Djokovic overcame an injury scare to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals for the ninth time on Tuesday with a 6-2, 7-6 (7/5), 6-4 win over France's Adrian Mannarino.

He had not beaten the 12-times grand slam victor since 2013, and had won just twice in 27 matches. I'm so happy to be through.

Asked about his injury, Djokovic said: "We'll see". Maybe you don't want players to feel that way, because the moment you become scared of moving properly, it's really hard to play. You adjust to the conditions. Seven-time champion Roger Federer will follow against Milos Raonic, the man that beat Federer in last year's semifinals.

On Wednesday, Federer matched the big-serving Canadian with 11 aces while crunching a spectacular 46 winners. He resisted valiantly in the final set, reaching a tiebreak, but the die was long since cast, and he managed just two points in the tiebreak.

"It's my elbow. It's been bothering me for a year and a half".

"I didn't start my best, but I just kept with it". "Unfortunately today was the worst day". It's not easy to play on the highest level throughout the entire season then be able to do that over and over again every season, and then stay healthy. "But I'm managing to play, which is the most important thing".

When the match did get under way, light rain led officials to close the roof over Centre Court, but despite his frustrations Djokovic came out strongly and easily won the first set.

Republican Karen Handel will be the next member of Congress for the 6th district, not newcomer-turned-Democratic hero Jon Ossoff . Trump predicted Handel's win as early as April 17, when he said that a runoff will lead to a win.

Djokovic's withdrawal also ends his chances of overhauling Andy Murray in the ATP rankings.

"Those kinds of circumstances don't really help. But there have been times in my career", he said, "where I definitely thought: If had to bet — 'Am I going to make a semi?' — I probably would have gone, 'No'".

"Because (John) Isner and (Nicolas) Mahut made a history with an 11-hour match once".

"It wasn't to be".

"I will have to take some time and see what needs to be done".

Eleventh seed Tomas Berdych, beaten finalist in 2010, has an intriguing match against Austria's rising star Dominic Thiem on Court Three and the Czech believes fans with tickets for Monday have chosen wisely.

Regardless of the circumstances, Djokovic missed out on the Wimbledon semis for the second consecutive year after previously making it to that point six years in a row. Wimbledon, like the Australian and French Opens, has no fifth-set tiebreaker in the final set. I am sure the groundsmen are the best in the world, but grass is the most complex surface to maintain.' During the third set he called the trainer for a shoulder issue, which he already suffered last summer. Romanian second seed Simona Halep took the first set on a tie-break but the British number one responded well to take the second set 7-6.

That snapped Djokovic's 30-match winning streak at the majors.
