Novak Djokovic retires in second set of quarterfinal match at Wimbledon

Relax There is no chaos in this stream of people as many relaxed by having a snooze enjoying a glass of Pimms or catching up on the paper like this gentleman

The three-time Wimbledon champion was playing a rescheduled match after Gilles Müller needed almost five hours to eliminate Rafael Nadal on Monday.

That would be a first for Djokovic, who has been one of the best players on tour for about a decade. "There are matches on Courts Two and Three that would grace Centre on any other day", he added.

Organisers said that safety concerns meant they could not move the match to Centre Court, where play can continue until 11 p.m. under floodlights with the retractable roof closed.

Meanwhile, Kerber said she was "really surprised" to be put on Court Two, admitting: 'I think it was a good match from both of us on a high level.

"We went to the referee's office before eight".

Djokovic, who is attempting to win Wimbledon for the fourth time, dispatched of Mannarino in straight sets but his victory was far from routine.

Not only does Djokovic have three Wimbledon titles to his name, but he is also playing fantastic tennis at this year's Grand Slam. Djokovic appeared to grimace in pain a couple of times as his shoulder was being checked.

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.

Novak Djokovic crashed out of Wimbledon on Wednesday as he was forced to retired injured in his quarter-final match against Tomas Berdych.

If Djokovic does not win the U.S. Open, it will mark his first season without winning a major since 2010.

Women's seventh seed Svetlana Kuznetsova found herself eliminated after a straight-sets loss to Garbine Muguruza, the 14th seed and 2015 victor at Wimbledon. "Probably the fact that I played yesterday, kind of days adding up, you know, as I've said before, it wasn't helping at all".

The second-seed took a 3-0 lead in the second but Mannarino broke back in the seventh game and took the contest to a tie-break.

"Then the matches, I could never really play quite so freely a year ago just because, you know, I'm more focused on how the knee's behaving rather than how I need to hit my forehand or backhand, or what's not going to be good for my opponent".

Wimbledon chief Richard Lewis insists placing more men's matches on the tournament's show courts is not favouritism but simply reflects what spectators want to see. He will not get overwhelmed by the stadium or whatever. I had a schedule to play all the time. Actually, I started feeling it already more or less at the beginning of the tournament.
