Roger Federer in action during his fourth round match against Grigor Dimitrov at Wimbledon

American men's tennis has been an afterthought in major events for quite some time now, but big server Sam Querrey brought the stars and stripes back to the forefront at Wimbledon. With competitors such as Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal beating him in major tournaments year after year, many thought Federer would quietly retire.

It's not the first time Murray has stood up for female tennis stars and the Williams sisters in particular. At Murray's press conference after the match, a reporter wanted him to opine on American futility, but when the journalist failed to specify that it was only the U.S. guys who weren't pulling their weight, he corrected him.

"Adapt or Impose" is one of the six key areas being analysed by the Telegraph and IBM from nearly three decades of Wimbledon coverage to discover #WhatMakesGreat in a Wimbledon champion. Seeded second at Wimbledon, Djokovic continues his search for a fourth Wimbledon title following an injury-plagued 2017 season. "He played a phenomenal game in the beginning to break me".

"You knew the dangers was there for one of us", Federer said of the "Big Four"'s disappearance. "This is the kind of situation you have to accept and try to make the most out of it", Djokovic said. He is playing the tournament of his career reaching the semi-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time. She last won the title in 2008, but reached the semifinals last year and the Australian Open final this year. But asked if received the kind of recognition at home that he might get if he were from another country, he said: "I'm not aware of any stadium or statue with my name on in the Czech Republic".

While Marin Cilic is relatively well-rested and leads their head-to-head match-up at 2-0, Gilles Muller's win against the man who won this year's French Open should make a huge difference, at least confidence-wise.

Next up for Berdych is third seed Roger Federer, who was a 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 winner against 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic. '10,000 aces is a great number, I think', is what the legend said before suggesting the ball be put up for auction, with the proceeds going to charity.

Federer doesn't do it all alone; he relies on family, friends and coaches to push him and encourage him. "But then there's a strong, strong team, as well, around the generation of Rafa and Murray and Djokovic, obviously".

By the fourth set Murray was noticeably limping, grimacing and complaining to his players' box.

"I think I didn't play my best the first two sets, then I was always playing against the scoreboard".

Wimbledon is the lone Grand Slam tournament that schedules all 16 remaining singles matches on the same day. Competing is everything to him.

During the 2008 Championships, Nadal lost only 4.5 per cent of his service games - remarkable for someone not noted for his serving prowess.
