Wimbledon: Agassi aims to focus Djokovic

  • Djokovic was too strong for Latvia's world no 589 Ernests Gulbis and is yet to drop a set at this year's Championships

Nadal and Muller's No. 1 Court epic meant there was no time for Novak Djokovic to take on Adrian Mannarino.

World No.1 Angelique Kerber during her second Monday match at Wimbledon. But still kept believing.

Novak Djokovic noticed the ball bouncing differently in some patches. He's back in the quarterfinals now here again.

Kuznetsova chipped in, saying: "Some matches I thought, I didn't deserve to play on Court 12, but I did play there". I'm not sure what the score was today.

Another early break in the third set him on his way and he didn't look back on his way to a straight sets win. I haven't dropped a set yet on grass, I have been feeling really good.

The unique nature of Manic Monday has come under some press scrutiny over the weekend and on Monday.

Muguruza appears to have rediscovered her form after reaching only a second grand slam quarter-final since she won the 2016 French Open.

Rybarikova, the lowest-ranked Wimbledon semifinalist since 2008, got past 24th-seeded CoCo Vandeweghe of the USA 6-3, 6-3 in a match suspended at 2-all in the second set because of showers and moved from Court No. 1 to Centre Court so it could be finished indoors.

Novak Djokovic has slammed Wimbledon officials for a scheduling debacle that has left the triple champion playing catch-up against his quarter-final rivals.

The schedule has also been brought forward to 12pm so as not to delay the two scheduled quarter-finals, although there are concerns about inclement weather and its effect on the two quarter-finals scheduled on No. 1 Court.

"Obviously not having the fifth-set tiebreaker here, having in mind as well that the grass is the fastest surface, when someone holds a serve, it's kind of tough to predict when the match is going to end", said the three-time Wimbledon champion.

In the last men's fourth-round match, Novak Djokovic took a medical timeout to have his right shoulder massaged, and he declared himself disappointed with the condition of the turf in the main stadium. "The Centre Court has the roof and lights, we could have played till 23:00".

A club statement on Monday said: 'It was determined the match could not be moved to Centre Court since, as late as 8.30pm, 30,000 people were still in the grounds.

The capacity on Centre Court is a little under 15,000 seats.

Garbine Muguruza sailed into the women's semi-finals following an impressive 6-3, 6-4 triumph over seventh seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, while Venus Williams ended Jelena Ostapenko's run through the competition.
