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.
