Djokovic angry at state of Centre Court after victory

"It's been something that I've been dragging back and forth for a while now", Djokovic said.

On his second set point, Djokovic slashed his third ace to seal the set. Got a few of them. In fact, he has not surrendered a set during this grass-court season.

Right after his, er, conversation with Garner, Djokovic lost a service game to trail 2-1.

Three of Djokovic's 12 major championships have come at Wimbledon, and after a real dip in results over the past 12 months, he has not dropped a set so far this fortnight.

During the first set Djokovic called for the trainer and took two tablets. I felt like at the end I was there all the time on his serves. I had a couple match points.

I like Djokovic to advance to the semifinals. Djokovic has been broken just twice this tournament and is winning no less than 42 percent of his return points.

Of course I knew it was important but in truth I was not really aware of how big a deal Wimbledon was, and how much focus there was on this event.

For Novak Djokovic, this will come un-stuck as there were reports of heated discussions taking places at the ATP offices with both Djokovic and Andre Agassi involved before his match was cancelled from the No. 1 Court schedule after an announcement had already been made that there would be no more play on Centre court.

To minimize disruption to the commuter services, Amtrak historically has done most of the track work overnight and on weekends. The LIRR urged riders to visit their new website,, to help commuters navigate the changes.

As a outcome, thanks to indecision, Djokovic and Mannarino found themselves opening play 24-hours later on Centre Court, under the roof, as rain also became a factor affecting some of the play on the outside courts.

"Getting to the stadiums is a challenge so three matches on Centre and One works for us".

But Djokovic saved his sharpest criticism for tournament officials at the All England Club, believing they blundered by failing to move the match to Centre on Monday night, and claiming their communication with the players was inadequate.

Later on Tuesday, Britain's Johanna Konta will take on the highest-seeded candidate left in the women's field, Simona Halep, while Coco Vandeweghe will face the last remaining unseeded player, Magdalena Rybarikova.

What was equally surprising was the match, which was due to be played on No1 Court, wasn't quickly rescheduled to Centre when it became vacant at around 7.00pm the previous evening.

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.

The capacity on Centre Court is a little under 15,000 seats.
