The big Argentine is looking to set up a mouth-watering quarter-final against Rafael Nadal, looking to avenge his defeat by the Spaniard, seeded second at Wimbledon, in the French Open semi-finals last month.

The semi-finalist went into more detail about his issues after the match. "Sometimes that's what you need to, I guess, be more alert on the court". "I was fortunate to have so much success on the Tour, it was a unusual feeling for me not to deliver my game that I know I possess, and I've been delivering for so many years".

"I thought it was unnecessary to get the warning", Djokovic said as he came off court.

Djokovic defeated 24 seed Kei Nishikori in four sets on Wednesday at Wimbledon, 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2, to advance. "I mean, anybody who saw the match, I mean, saw that literally I kind of touched the grass", Djokovic said later. I know how I threw the racquet.

"He was playing very deep, he was going both sides with his back and then his forehand too. he was making me run all the time". I think his confidence is back, ' he said.

The Japanese player has already lost twice to the former world number one this year - on clay in Madrid and Rome.

Rafael Nadal needed nearly five hours to beat Juan Martin del Potro and set up a Wimbledon semi-final with Novak Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic discusses what it means to return to the Wimbledon semifinals and the cause of his frustrations with the chair umpire in the second set.

Those fears dimmed when Nishikori broke Nole in the opening game of the fourth set, but again the balance tipped in the Serb's direction when he broke back in the follower. If there were obvious empty seats for the lunchtime encounter, with defending champion Roger Federer in action at the same time on Court One, the entertainment could not be faulted.

Djokovic, seeded 12th, was visibly disappointed at those missed opportunities, incurring a warning from umpire Ramos for throwing his racket, and Nishikori made him feel even worse when he broke to lead 3-1 after Djokovic put an attempted drop shot into the net.

He then failed to convert three crucial break opportunities on Djokovic's serve at 2-2 in the third set, giving away the game and then his next two serves to hand the Serb his second set.

"It feels great to be in the last four of a slam", he said.

With a 10th appearance in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, Djokovic moves into a tie with Andy Murray behind Roger Federer (16), Jimmy Connors (14) and Boris Becker (11).

The 2011, 2014 and 2015 champion was clearly unsettled by the dispute, quickly surrendering the set.
