John Isner loses to eight seed in longest semifinal match at Wimbledon

Anderson then took the fourth set 6-4, breaking the Isner serve twice in the set.

Whoever wins will set the final to face either Ralf Nadal or Novak Djokovic.

It was the longest semi-final ever played at Wimbledon, surpassing the four hours 44 minutes it took Djokovic to beat Juan Martin del Potro in 2013.

"It's by far the best Grand Slam I've ever played in my career, and I've been playing for 11 years". I really feel for him. "As of right now, I'm sort of more focused on that than getting too excited about the overall picture". There were staggering statistics galore, including 53 aces for Isner and 49 for Anderson. Between them, the two players combined for 102 aces and just six breaks.

Anderson had already battled through another epic five-setter, defeating Roger Federer in the a quarter-final that ended 13-11 in the fifth set.

Both men are in unfamiliar territory, each having never made a Wimbledon semi-final before.

It was the second-longest match in Wimbledon history and longest one-day match in Wimbledon history.

However, Isner was then unable to convert a set point of his own in the tiebreak before 32-year-old Anderson wrapped it up thanks to a netted return.

Anderson had a break and set point chance at 5-4, but Isner fired down a gutsy 129mph unreturned second serve to keep himself in contention.

Anderson broke through for a 5-3 lead in the third set, ending Isner´s run of serving invincibility at this year´s Wimbledon at 110 games. Isner in particularly started to appear worn out at the set wore on. The two went back and forth all the way to 12-all, essentially playing a full sixth and seventh set.

But the physical toll exacted on the 6-8, 205-pound Anderson can't possibly be remedied in time for Sunday's meeting with a current or former world No. 1.
