Djokovic and Mannarino played under a closed roof at Center Court, the first time it has been shut at this year's tournament.
But the tournament opted to not to move due to safety concerns with fans rushing to get into Centre. I think it is also a good idea for the commercial part.
It is believed Djokovic was far from happy at being made to wait around until late evening without clarity about whether the contest would begin.
Marin Cilic has reached the Wimbledon semifinals for the first time. The seventh-seeded Croat beat Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 6-2, 6-2.
"It's unfortunate that I had to finish Wimbledon this way", the three-time champion told a media conference. "Venus has played on Court One three times so it felt like the right time".
The second seed also complained of a headache. The American faces 20-year-old French Open champion Ostapenko from Latvia.
And he was clearly peeved with the decision not to use a vacant centre court on Monday night as officials dithered while Gilles Muller and Rafael Nadal warred for nearly five hours on court 1. "I mean, I'm sure she hits well off all sides". I know what I need to do.
Initially Djokovic did not appear to be hampered by the problem as he and Berdych traded blows from the baseline in a tight set that advanced to a shootout without a single break point. She finally won by converting her eighth match point.
"Comparing to the first couple of matches and the last couple of weeks I think this was the most focused I was on the court".
I asked him if he would like to spend time with Andre and I during Wimbledon, while you're there, if you have time.
Querrey has now won three consecutive matches in five sets at the All England Club.
"(The) courts, honestly, are not that great this year and many players feel the same, but it is what it is", Djokovic said in a television interview after his match ended. "So I hope I can keep it up". Wade, who sat in the Royal Box for Konta's quarterfinal victory, was the last British women's champion at the All England Club, in 1977.
Muller equaled his best Grand Slam performance by reaching the quarterfinals.
The Swiss maestro defeated big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (4).
Williams vs. Konta, Muguruza vs. Rybarikova.
