Otherwise, Djokovic had little trouble eliminating 51st-ranked Adrian Mannarino of France 6-2, 7-6 (5), 6-4 in a match postponed Monday night because of darkness. I don't think much can be done and what can be done. "I guess the break is something that I will have to consider right now", he added.

Seven times Wimbledon victor, Roger Federer has yet to be truly stretched but Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov should give observers some clues as to just how sharp the Swiss's form is.

Berdych has never won a grand slam, although he was Wimbledon runner-up in 2010 when he lost to Rafael Nadal.

Federer walked out on Centre Court after Murray's shock defeat to Sam Querrey and then saw it announced on screen that Djokovic had retired injured from his match against Tomas Berdych.

Federer told BBC Sport: "I'm very happy that my body kept me going all these years". "Well, you know, that's a long time".

This is Querrey's 42nd Grand Slam tournament, the most ever played by a man in the Open era before getting to his first semifinal. He couldn't play his usual court-covering defence.

The questions about passion, balance and focus, they have every right to asked.

The German statement also said the country's security services were steering Liu's treatment rather than the doctors. Mo Zhixu, a family friend, told Efe that as far as he knew, Liu and his entourage continued to seek to leave China.

CoCo Vandeweghe argued with chair umpire Kelly Thomson about whether a point in her Wimbledon quarterfinal loss should have been replayed because a line judge's call was distracting.

Such a statistic would not be a concern to many but he had become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time.

The top-ranked Murray will face 24th-seeded Sam Querrey, with the victor facing either Muller or Marin Cilic in the semifinals.

Djokovic said: "We spoke with the referee, supervisors, trying to understand the thought process that they are having".

It's an unlikely pairing.

"He's an established top-10 player".

Quite how long they remain part of the team remains the subject of conversation but Djokovic is clearly enjoying having them around - smiling as her referred to Ancic and his role in NY as "the Wolf of Wall Street".

Which story? Tarantino could be tackling the famous Manson Murders in his next film, according to The Hollywood Reporter . QT has just about finished the script, and some (very early) casting rumors include Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt .

"I just always felt like I have to keep trying", said Williams, who repeatedly took advantage of Ostapenko's second serves at around 70 miles per hour (110 kph).

"He was one of the very few players and athletes that have been successful and during their active career studied, as well, studied law, which is not an easy thing to study".

"He wanted me to show him, so I showed him", Djokovic said. He was a bit surprised but he was already scheduled to be in London. "I was watching out my step all the time when I had to slow down".

"I definitely feel that age is not a factor with her", Konta said about Williams.

"We'll see on the shoulder".

Mannarino said: "I mean, I was a little bit - to me, it was quite odd in the beginning of the match, because I felt like I was running in a different way".

Island Where Women Are Banned Granted UNESCO World Heritage Status
The ban on female visitors specifically "has nothing to do with discrimination against women", the official told AFP by phone. Okinoshima island is home to an ancient religious site built in the 17th century and has three small sacred Shinto shrines.
