Wimbledon explains Djokovic match was postponed for crowd safety

Wimbledon explains Djokovic match was postponed for crowd safety

Time off has paid dividends for Roger Federer, who missed the last half of 2016 to allow his surgically repaired left knee heal, then skipped the clay-court season this year.

"It's not easy obviously playing on grass against a big server like that", said Djokovic of his childhood friend Gulbis who he has now defeated six times in seven meetings."I'm very pleased with the way I've felt, the way I've played". "But she keeps getting back in the ring - and she seems to be doing pretty well". But, you know, as I said, you have to deal with it.

Somehow, at age 37, she's done that.

On No. 1 Court, Gilles Muller will be first against Marin Cilic. But Wimbledon, like the other three Slams, is not a WTA event, hence no coaching is allowed.

"The first one was 20 years ago? It comes down to Wednesday, one day, so I've just got to try to find a way to try to be better on that day".

This is not exactly new, though.

There is no chance of a repeat final this year, though, after Murray, who was hampered by his hip injury, lost in five sets to Querrey.

Legit beef? "Hard to say just from watching, but to me, it looks like Centre Court is in better condition than it ever has been".

Williams revealed in 2011 that she was diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome, which can sap energy and cause joint pain.

"They have time to figure out how they're going to prep them for Monday". "The serve and forehand were the shots I could feel it most".

"When that was no longer an option, it was determined the match could not be moved to Centre Court due to the number of spectators remaining in the grounds". I hope he and Novak will recover in time for the American summer but there are other good stories in the tournament.

Play at Wimbledon will start on Centre Court at noon with the roof closed.

The retirement, with the score at 7-6 (2) 2-0, came shortly after the 30-year-old Serb called a medical timeout.

But Nadal, Wimbledon victor in 2008 and 2010, is up against a tricky opponent in Luxembourg's left-handed serve and volley specialist Gilles Muller, who beat him in the second round in 2005 - the Spaniard's first loss at the tournament.

Garbine Muguruza is in the Wimbledon semifinals.

Sam Querrey eliminated a limping Andy Murray from the Wimbledon quarterfinals, beating the defending champion 3-6, 6-4, 6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-1 on Centre Court.

"I always had that admiration, respect for him, but mostly that friendship that we carried on even after his career ended. It wasn't like I was, like, a million miles away from winning the match", Murray said.

The decision to postpone Novak Djokovic's last-16 match against Adrian Mannarino was made on safety grounds, Wimbledon has announced.

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