Anderson has his work cut out against Isner in Wimbledon semifinal

John Isner laid his aces on the table but found a way into the Wimbledon semi-finals by breaking the Milos Raonic serve.

Anderson took a medical timeout after the third set.

Because of the length, the second semifinal between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic began with the Centre Court roof closed and started after 8 p.m. local time. In 2010 at Wimbledon, he beat Nicolas Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set in a match that lasted over 11 hours and was played over three days. But the South African was broken right back and couldn't capitalize on two set points in the tiebreaker - double-faulting on the first.

He finally broke the 33-year-old American in the 49th game of the decider after coming close in a couple of earlier games and looked impassive as he held his nerve to secure victory.

Isner jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the tiebreaker and converted his third set point with an ace.

Anderson won the first set 7-6 (6).

The first match on the Tour between these two was in Las Vegas in 2008 but they have played a very important match in Collegiate tennis back in 2007, and this is a nice occasion to go back in past and examine their Collegiate careers.

Eighth-seeded Anderson's prize for his bittersweet victory over his former U.S. college friend and rival is a date on Sunday with either world No.1 Rafael Nadal or fellow grand slam giant Novak Djokovic.

The three-time Wimbledon champion posted a video to his Instagram story of him playing marbles in the dressing room as he prepares to face Nadal. Isner has won all 95 of his service games so far.
