Kevin Anderson dethroned Roger Federer to reach his maiden Wimbledon semi-final after sealing a dramatic 13-11 deciding-set victory on Wednesday.

Rafael Nadal is in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011.

Federer won the first two sets, 6-2, 7-6 (5) before Anderson rallied to win the next two sets, 7-5, 6-4, becoming the first player at Wimbledon this year to take a set from Federer. We are not talking about already that I played a final or I won the tournament.

Anderson scented blood and, out-duelling Federer time and again, he broke in the seventh game to level the match at two sets all.

A female officer asked for the man's ID and can be heard in the video saying, "You don't come here harassing people". When additional officers arrived, the man was eventually arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct.

Eighth-seed Anderson completed an audacious comeback against the unlikeliest of foes to suffer one at SW19 on Wednesday when he turned a two-set deficit around to emerge the victor in a four-hour struggle. "I felt I was playing better tennis, so that was motivating for me as well to keep at it", said Florida-based Anderson who is applying for United States citizenship.

"He claims that he didn't see what Nishikori has done, but apparently he always sees what I do", Djokovic said afterward, "something that I don't think is fair". It's one of those average days you have to try to win the match, and I just couldn't get it done today. "I just kept telling myself this will be my day".

Gaining in confidence, Anderson took care of Federer 6-4 in the fourth, setting up a do-or-die fifth set. Del Potro had opportunities in both to break Nadal's serve, and both went on for over nine minutes, but Nadal persevered to stave Martin del Potro off from tying the set. Might take me half an hour.

Djokovic is a 12-time major champion who's been in something of a rut, due to right elbow troubles that lasted more than a year until he finally had surgery in February.

Nadal faces the victor of Juan Martin del Potro and Gilles Simon while Federer takes on US Open finalist Kevin Anderson in the quarterfinals.

Serving at 5-6, Anderson fell behind Love-30, which put Federer two points form defeat.

But he found himself in even more unfamiliar territory with an inspired Anderson's relentless, thudding serve eventually overpowering the 20-time grand slam victor. Raonic never broke Isner's serve, and while Isner broke Raonic's serve just three times, it was just enough to move on.

But his run at Wimbledon might have come as a surprise even to Anderson, who had never made it past the fourth round prior to this year and lost in the first round of the grass-court event at Queen's Club last month. When Nishikori let his own racket fly in the fourth set, he wasn't chastised, which prompted Djokovic to yell "double standards" toward Ramos - drawing boos from fans.
