Federer vs. Nadal, Djokovic vs. Bautista Agut at Wimbledon

Wimbledon 2019 'Maniac Monday' Preview Live Stream match details and where to watch

Eight-time champion Federer racked up his 100th match win at Wimbledon and reached his 13th semi-final with a 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4 defeat of Japan's Kei Nishikori. He'll also need to put pressure on Federer's serve; even if it doesn't result in a break, pushing games to deuce will extend the match and make the 37-year-old's task more hard.

Nadal defeated Sam Querrey to set up another blockbuster showdown with his old rival 11 years after they last met at the All England Club, when the Spaniard won a classic final.

JL: Of course, Nadal was the clear favorite on clay at the French Open but when it comes to the Wimbledon grass, the turf is Federer's. I remember back in the day how he used to serve, and now how much bigger he's serving, how much faster he finishes points. "I'm excited to play against Roger here at Wimbledon again after such a long time".

In the blink of an eye, the impostor who had seemingly replaced Federer in the early games was nowhere to be seen as the real deal strode out for the second set and promptly won 12 points in a row to take a 3-0 lead. The next two sets weren't almost as competitive as Nadal broke twice in each and converted his first match point with a forehand victor.

He said: "I had planned to be in Ibiza right now". Pella, meanwhile, had spent almost twice as much time on court - 12 hours, 47 minutes compared to 6 hours, 48 minutes - after coming through two five-setters.

Nishikori, bidding to become the first Japanese man to reach the semi-finals since Jiro Satoh in 1933, broke Federer in the first game on Centre Court.

The 31-year-old Bautista Agut, who had never been past the fourth round of a Grand Slam before, was the only player to reach the quarterfinals without dropping a set.

So while the match is pitting a four-time Wimbledon champion with 15 major titles against a player in his first Grand Slam semifinal, recent history suggests that things might not be quite so one-sided.

Other than that, I've won in straight sets and played really well throughout the tournament.

JL: I'm sticking with my original pick from the beginning of the tournament: Roger Federer. Djokovic fended off two break points in the third game before getting broken in game seven after a well-constructed attack from David who was the better player in the first 35 minutes.

"But it was a good experience to play against such a strong opponent", he said of world No. 3 Federer, who claimed his 100th Wimbledon victory. "He was everywhere", said a shattered Goffin.

"I always try to set my form so I can play my best at this tournament", Djokovic said in the post-match press conference.
