The row over the state of Wimbledon's prized green lawns has intensified after Novak Djokovic complained of a "hole" in the middle of Centre Court during his win against Adrian Mannarino.

Djokovic stopped the quarterfinal match while trailing 7-6 (2), 2-0. The Serb roped in American legend Andre Agassi as his coach ahead of the tournament, and was hoping to win the title and reclaim the world number one spot.

The triple All England Club champion was too accomplished for Mannarino in a 6-2 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 result but, ominously, he struggled with soreness in his right arm and shoulder.

Only one more point was played before Djokovic call a halt to proceedings, handing Berdych his last-four berth.

Play has started on No. 1 Court at Wimbledon.

At the age of 37, five-time champions Venus Williams became the oldest Wimbledon semi-finalist for 23 years, overpowering 20-year-old Jelena Ostapenko, the recent French Open victor. I just think it was a wrong decision not to play us last night, because we could have played.

Novak Djokovic is considering taking a break from competitive tennis to recover after a long-standing elbow injury forced him out of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

He also won in the Wimbledon semifinals in 2010, when he was the runner-up to Nadal.

The Serbian summoned the chair umpire to take note of a threat to footing during his straight-sets victory over Adrian Mannarino in the fourth round on Tuesday.

We went to the referee's office before 8pm.

Despite all that-and a second-set spike in his opponent's level of play-the three-time champion controlled the center of the court for much of the match. There was security reasons. Djokovic will be seeking his 39th Grand Slam quarterfinal berth, and ninth at Wimbledon, while Mannarino never has been that far at any major. "That was the only excuse. that we were getting".

"I think the last match on the centre court was done before 7pm".

If the Court 1 ticketholders cannot go to the Centre Court, only the second Centre Court ticketholders can go, which they were already at the hill.

Wimbledon's Manic Monday is arguably the best day in the tennis calendar as every single one of the men's and women's last-16 matches is played.
