Fast forward and he is the dominant player, not only at Wimbledon but throughout the year. You can always play a little better. But, you know, as I said, you have to deal with it. I guess she's kind of like a boxer: "People think it's time for her to quit because she's too old", Oracene Price said after leaving Centre Court, where the roof was shut because of rain Tuesday. The victor will go through to face Czech Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.

Centre Court was free from 6.50pm when Roger Federer finished his victory over Grigor Dimitrov but the All England Club decided not to move the match.

Halep would have taken over from Angelique Kerber as the top-ranked player if she had won. Instead, the competitors play and play and. play. Wade was also the last British woman to win the title a year earlier. The contest was held over after the marathon battle between Rafael Nadal and Gilles Muller concluded late on Monday.

Querrey is playing in his third consecutive five-set match at Wimbledon.

At the age of 37, five-time champions Venus Williams became the oldest Wimbledon semi-finalist for 23 years, overpowering 20-year-old Jelena Ostapenko, the recent French Open victor. She last won the title in 2008, but reached the semifinals last year and the Australian Open final this year.

The second set was even more straightforward as Raonic wafted a forehand wide to concede another early break before Federer's ripped backhand victor caught the line for 5-1.

Only one more point was able to be played before Djokovic call a halt to proceedings, handing Berdych his last-four berth. Djokovic appeared to grimace in pain a couple of times as his shoulder was being checked.

Second seed Djokovic will face the Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych on Wednesday for a semi-final spot, boasting a 25-2 career record over the 2010 Wimbledon runner-up.

Defending champion Andy Murray will open play on Centre Court against Sam Querrey.

Novak Djokovic was scheduled to play his fourth-round match against Adrian Mannarino immediately afterward, but they were unable to because of the lack of daylight.

"During the match I mentioned that there is a hole in the middle of the court, middle of the service line and he asked me to show him and I did".

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at three talking points from a dramatic day nine at the All England Club.

Novak Djokovic may wish he had as much time to prepare for his next match as he did for his previous one.

Djokovic had needed treatment on his shoulder during his victory over Mannarino.

"But for a player to play a five, six-hour match, then come back the next day or within two days and perform, it's not really what your body's looking for, to be honest".
