2 days ago   |   By TheScore

The second men's Wimbledon semifinal has been suspended due to the tournament's 11 p.m. curfew. As hoped , Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic were producing a vintage Nadal-Djokovic match - replete with insane court coverage, defense-to-offense acrobatics, and gobsmacking shot-making - which was well on its way to being an epic before the curfew struck. Djokovic had just won the third-set tiebreaker, 11-9, to take a two sets to one lead. The start time of the match got pushed way back thanks to the absurd six-hour, 36-minute preceding semifinal between Kevin Anderson and John Isner, which ended...

2 days ago   |   By Sportsnet

LONDON - It was the kind of tennis that Wimbledon's Centre Court crowd would gladly have watched all night long.
The show being put on by Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal was so good it could have been an instant classic had they been able to finish their semifinal before the tournament's 11 p.m. curfew.
