Djokovic out of Wimbledon after retiring hurt against Berdych

Traditionally, no men's singles matches are played on Tuesday at Wimbledon by a long five-setter between Rafael Nadal and Gilles Muller forced the Djokovic-Mannarino match to be re-scheduled. Having in mind that Centre Court has the roof and lights, we could have played till 11:00.

The Serb will be first up on Centre Court, at midday (1100 GMT), in a bonus event before the women's quarters. "In the beginning I had no clue what to do but after that I got to the junior final (at Wimbledon)".

"There is a possibility that they will propose surgery, but I don't think that is good", Djokovic told Serbian media. But I quickly just turned the next page and just focused on what I need to do today. But gradually, Djokovic reasserted himself and won 7-5.

Djokovic broke Mannarino twice in an entertaining first set lasting 37 minutes thanks to the left-handed Frenchman's durability in the rally.

And after the first set against Berdych, he again called for a trainer to check his right arm. "It is something which I have been dragging back and forth for a while but I am still managing to play", the World No.4 added. Referee's office was completely indecisive.

Each of the All England Club's numbered courts - 1 through 18 - felt like a stage for a Shakespearean production. Djokovic frequently drew the attention of the chair umpire to the court's shortcomings, and animatedly gesticulated towards the surface after more than one lost point.

Officials declined to move the match to another court and Djokovic expressed his displeasure after defeating Mannarino.

"I get very excited just watching", Federer said, noting he planned to leave the news conference as soon as possible.

The second seed also complained of a headache. Prowling the baseline, his groundstrokes caused Djokovic some problems and he even took the former World No 1 to a nail biting second set tiebreak.

With the score at 5-4 and Djokovic serving for the match, Mannarino managed one final heave and pushed Djokovic to deuce once more and one final rally.

Fed will take on Berdych, and the victor will face the winner of Querrey versus Marin Cilic in the Wimbledon final. He asked me to show him and I did.

"Of course, the quicker the better for me", Muller, bumped up from his ATP ranking of 26 to 16th seed at Wimbledon after a superb run in the European grass court season, said.

"He is someone that understands the occasion of playing big matches, big tournaments".
