Wimbledon 2018 -- Juan Martin del Potro reaches quarterfinals

After so much speculation about a possible Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, 10 years after their last, the tennis world instead will get a semifinal featuring another outstanding rivalry: Nadal vs.

Nadal, 32, and Djokovic, 31, meet in a highly anticipated Wimbledon semi-final at about 16:30 BST on Friday.

A year after the epic encounter between Nadal and Djokovic at the semifinal stage of Roland Garros, they took on each other in the final in 2014.

Whoever wins will surely be favored in the final against either John Isner or Kevin Anderson.

The French Open champion will next face Novak Djokovic in a clash of two former champions following the Serbian's success over Kei Nishikori earlier on Wednesday.

Looking to watch a live stream of Djokovic vs Nadal? The two will play at Wimbledon on Friday for the third time, with their record an even 1-1. "That's a big thing".

Rafael Nadal said he "feels sorry" for Roger Federer following his shock Wimbledon exit.

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

"It is always a big challenge facing Novak". It is always a big test.

In arguably the grandest, and statistically the most frequent, showdown of the Open era, the momentum has swung this way then that.

"It´s not good for me. I tried to resist and maintain focus". He's playing well. Only way to try to win it is play very well. "In some ways he deserves to win as well", said Nadal after the breath-taking quarter-final.

The Majorcan, who is the world number one but seeded second at Wimbledon, looked refreshed as he breezed through his opening four matches without dropping a set.

The Spaniard made headlines after his touching post-match embrace of Juan Martin del Potro went viral, and he hasn't lost any fans after his latest classy moment.

" I think it was great quality tennis".
