Defending champion Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal closed in on a dream Wimbledon final as the sport's two greatest players swept into the last eight on Monday.

Despite being a three-time champion, Djokovic has featured just once on Centre Court - against British home favourite Kyle Edmund in the last 32 - in the opening four rounds. He had three break-point opportunities during the third set but saved them all. The Spaniard is hoping his old rival, and eight-time champion, gets knocked out before that.

Federer won his eighth title at the All England Club in 2017 and has played four consecutive games on Centre Court this year.

Djokovic had to play that fourth round on Tuesday and quarter-final on Wednesday when he was forced to retire against Tomas Berdych with an elbow injury.

The 52nd-ranked Giorgi of Italy took the first set 6-3. It shouldn't be a shock, and, "Oh, my God, I can't believe it, I lost a set".

"It's true it has been a while", Nadal said about his return to the last eight.
