A thrilling Wimbledon semifinal match between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic was cut short on Friday because of the stadium curfew. It was the longest men's semifinal in Wimbledon history at six hours and 36 minutes. There is no set time for the match to end, and they can often go on for more than two hours.
"I hope this is a sign for Grand Slams to change".
"It feels like it´s a draw but somebody has to win. It's doesn't matter who it is‚ it's going to be a huge challenge". I have an bad blister on my right foot.
"I'm really, really pleased", Djokovic said.
It led to the unusual situation of both players leaving the court to a huge ovation - and applauding the fans in return - but without there being a clear victor or loser.
"To win against the best player in the world, in one of the longest matches I ever played, I'm just overwhelmed".
It all made for an unusual schedule, with the start of the women's final - normally the stand-alone showcase on the fortnight's last Saturday - delayed until Nadal and Djokovic finished.

‘Business as usual’ despite Brexit Secretary’s resignation - Coveney - Ireland
Trump stoked domestic controversy, however, by refusing to say if he saw Putin as a friend or a foe. Other ministers described the meeting as "very good".
It's the first time in almost a century that a South African's made it to the end of the competition, and no South African has ever won the tournament.
So although he may remain an outsider to win the title - Anderson is [5.70] to Djokovic's [1.20] - it would be unwise to ignore his chances completely.
The three-time champion had a tiny bit more than Nadal at the end and grabbed the crucial break of serve at 9-8 up to close out another phenomenal match. The defeat especially stings because marathon play is nothing new to the 33-year-old American.
Fans in stands expressed due appreciation for Isner and Anderson's effort and skill - to a point.
Leading 3-1, Nadal seemed comfortable but handed back the break, making some uncharacteristic errors in a poorly executed game. Still, Isner did jokingly ask chair umpire Marija Cicak at one point during the last set whether they could play a tiebreaker.
It was a similar tale in the fourth set where the South African broke for 3-2 only to hand the break straight back.
With Anderson and Isner, known as two of the most powerful servers in the tournament, it was predictably hard for either player to break the other's serve. Anderson's serve will keep him in this match when other parts of his game desert him, and this can be enough to see him take the contest to five sets.
Nadal, the 2008 and 2010 champion, trails Djokovic, the 2011, 2014 and 2015 victor, 26-25 in a rivalry which began at Roland Garros 12 years ago. London's heatwave has returned with a vengeance and the sun will be beating down on Centre Court when Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson drag their tired bodies on to the grass in an hour.
