Anderson was sticking to his guns, though, and after saving match point the eighth seed secured another break of the Federer serve and snatched a set back.

Djokovic next faces Kei Nishikori, who defeated Ernests Gulbis 4-6 7-6 (7/5) 7-6 (12/10) 6-1 to become the first Japanese man to make the last eight at all four slams.

It was a surprise result that now sends the eighth-seeded Anderson to the semifinals at Wimbledon, his first time making it that far in the storied competition that Federer has won eight times, including past year.

However, Federer has held all of his 55 service games this year and last dropped serve in the semi-finals in 2017 - 81 service games ago.

The Swiss refused to blame his surprise defeat on the decision to play the match on Court One rather than his customary Centre Court stage at the All England Club.

Anderson is the first South African man in the Wimbledon last-eight since Wayne Ferreira in 1994.

There will be a new Wimbledon champion as Roger Federer was upset in a thrilling a five-set match against South Africa's Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinals.

For the only the second time at Wimbledon, Federer was beaten after holding a two-set lead, with his previous loss from that position coming against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the 2011 quarter-finals. It all started with Wimbledon's official Twitter handle tagging the International Cricket Council (ICC) on a post which had Federer playing what looked like a forward-defensive cricket stroke during his third-round match at the ongoing Wimbledon Championships.

"I'm ecstatic. That's what you work so hard for".

That being said, this Kevin Anderson is a much-improved player since their last encounter at the 2015 Cincinnati Masters.

However since then, the 2.03m-tall Anderson has improved markedly and Wednesday's match will be their first meeting on grass.

"He was down match point in the third set, and he's through to his first ever semi-final here at Wimbledon now".

Asked if he expected more from an opponent in the world's top 30, Federer said: "I think it's a tough matchup for him maybe against me".

"Do you think I ruined the court?" he bellowed at Ramos.

A delicate half-volley gave Federer the opening set in 26 minutes, but two games into the second Anderson had the initiative, snatching the first of two break points as he turned up the power, the world number two netting a backhand.
