Maria Sharapova has reached the Wimbledon semi-finals for the fifth time in her career with a three sets victory over Coco Vandeweghe.

Sharapova is bidding for her sixth grand slam and the first since her victory over Simona Halep in last year's French Open final.

The 28 year-old's only Wimbledon title to date arrived back in 2004 when she shocked Serena Williams less than three months after celebrating her 17th birthday.

Djokovic fell two sets behind against big-serving South African Kevin Anderson but had levelled the fourth-round match when fading light brought play to a halt on Court One.

Anderson had taken the first two sets on tie-breaks, setting up the possibility of a major upset, before improvingDjokovic battled back to make the scoreline 6-7 (6/8) 6-7 (6/8) 6-1 6-4 0-0.

Tournament officials ruled out the prospect of moving the match to finish on Centre Court, where lighting under the roof allows matches to continue until an 11pm curfew, deciding instead it would resume at 1pm on Tuesday on Court One.

A statement on Twitter from Wimbledon said: "Regarding Djokovic/Anderson not being moved to Centre: Ideally, tournament scheduling aims to finish a match on the court it started. With no urgent need to finish the match tonight, both Djokovic & Anderson were happy to resume at 1pm on No.1 Court tomorrow."

The fallout from her wrist injury absence haunted Laura Robson at Wimbledon, inconsistencies in technique forcing a straight-sets 6-4 6-4 defeat to Evgeniya Rodina in the first round.

Service action shortcomings and overall rustiness put Robson on the back foot throughout, and the former British number one slipped out of SW19 despite boasting a far more powerful ground game than her Russian opponent.

Admittedly undercooked and eventually overwhelmed, the currently-unranked wildcard entry was unable to pull off victory in just the second match of her long-awaited comeback.
