The story of the ninth day of action at SW19.

Meanwhile, Andy Murray and Serena Williams bowed out of the mixed doubles.

Here, PA reviews the ninth day of action.

Shot of the day

It was as if Djokovic and David Goffin were playing in an exhibition match when they reeled off back-to-back 'tweeners'. The Belgian's shot put Djokovic on the back foot and when the defending champion replicated his opponent's shot, but not as successfully, Goffin had a simple volley to win the point.

Stat of the day

Federer's win over Kei Nishikori was his 100th at the Championships, and set up a first meeting with Nadal since their epic final in 2008.

Change of plans

Bautista Agut clearly did not fancy his chances of reaching the semi-finals – he was due to fly to Ibiza this weekend for his stag do.

Brit watch

Murray's superstar mixed doubles partnership with Williams came to an end when they lost to top seeds Bruno Soares and Nicole Melichar on Court Two. But Anton Matusevich, 18, beat world junior number one Holger Rune 6-4 7-5 in the third round of the boys' singles.
