Day 11 of the Wimbledon 2018 saw the longest men's semi-final ever in the history of the game.
Eighth seed Kevin Anderson played another scintillating match of his life as he prevailed in the semi-final against John Isner.
In the other game, the match will be resuming on Saturday with Djokovic leading against Nadal.
Here is more on the same.
South Africa's Anderson, who defeated Roger Federer in a marathon quarters match, was once again involved in a similar duel.
The match took 6 hours and 35 minutes to complete before the eighth seed prevailed, 7-6, 6-7, 6-7, 6-4, 26-24.
What was more interesting was that the final set itself took 2 hours and 35 minutes.
The match broke many records on the way.
It broke the previous semi-final longest match record that took 4 hours and 44 minutes.
In that match, Djokovic had beaten del Potro in 2013.
The Anderson vs Isner match is the third longest in history and the 2nd longest at Wimbledon.
Isner's 2010 match against Nicolas went for 11 hours and 5 minutes.
