Wimbledon men's singles semifinals take place on Friday. The first ones to head into the Centre Court will be John Isner and Kevin Anderson. The American leads head to head meetings 8-3, they last faced each other at 2015 Indian Wells with Isner prevailing.
But many things changed since then, and now Anderson is definitely a better played. They always played on hard but once, at 2008 Queen's on grass, Isner won. After that, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will play. The Serb defeated Nadal at 2011 Wimbledon final, winning his first title at The Championships.
Before the match, Nadal said: 'Always is a big challenge face Novak. Is one of the more complex players that I ever saw on our sport. Is always a big test. You know that you can't win against him if you don't play very well.
But my goal is to try to play very well. I know in semifinals of Wimbledon you will not have an easy opponent in front. You have to accept that if you want to win important things. Of course, you will face the best players. You need to be ready for it.
I did a lot of things well since I am back from injury. I only lost one match. I know that semifinals is one of these matches that anything could happen. I know if you don't play very well, you will not have the chance to win.
But I hope to be ready to play very well, and let's see what's going on. I know he's playing very well.'
