An imperious Novak Djokovic proved unstoppable and courageous Juan Martin Del Potro indomitable as both claimed straight-sets victories on Wednesday to set up a Wimbledon semi-final clash.
Top seed Djokovic reeled off his fifth successive three-set victory although his quarter-final against Czech seventh seed Tomas Berdych was harder than the 7-6(5) 6-4 6-3 scoreline suggested.
Novak Djokovic moved into the Wimbledon final Friday with a 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 6-7 (8), 6-3 victory over Juan Martin del Potro in the longest semifinal in the tournament's history, at 4 hours, 43 minutes.
Djokovic moved into his 11th Grand Slam final and is one victory away from his seventh major title.

Andy Murray finally won one for the Brits, defeating top-seeded Novak Djokovic in straight sets for the Wimbledon title. Still, it wasn’t easy:
Yes, this was history, and Murray’s 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 victory over top-seeded Novak Djokovic was a fitting close to nearly eight decades of British frustration in its own backyard: A straight-setter, yes, but a hard-fought, 3-hour, 9-minute...
Astonishing, phenomenal, compelling, the Centre Court clash stretched to four hours and 44 minutes, knocking the 1989 last-four clash between Boris Becker and Ivan Lendl out of future record books.

(July 3, 2013) For years now, I have dismissed Juan Martin Del Potro on grass. And it wasn’t without reason. He is very tall and has long legs, and the low bounce on grass makes it difficult for him to get down to hit balls comfortably. His movement on the surface has never been great. Most of all, though, even when he played his best tennis, the results just weren’t there on...
