LONDON (AP) — The Latest from Wimbledon (all times local):

3:25 p.m.

Roger Federer has failed to extend his own record for the longest streak of consecutive sets won at Wimbledon after dropping a set in his quarterfinal with Kevin Anderson.

After Federer had taken a 6-2, 7-6 (5) lead, eighth-seeded Anderson won the third set 7-5.

The first two sets took Federer's streak to 34 — equaling the mark he set between the third round in 2005 and the 2006 final.

Federer had a match point at 4-5, 30-40 but failed to take it, before Anderson broke in the following game to earn the opportunity to serve out the set.

Anderson then saved three break points in that game, before hitting an ace to convert his first set point.

Roger Federer's streak of service games without being broken at Wimbledon has ended at 85.

Kevin Anderson became the first man to break Federer during the tournament at the start of the second set of their quarterfinal.

Federer led 6-2, 0-2 following the break.

The longest streak of service games won at the All England Club was Pete Sampras's 118, set between the third round in 2000 and the second round in 2001.

Defending champion Federer hadn't been broken since the opening set of his 2017 semifinal victory over Tomas Berdych.

Roger Federer has played his first Wimbledon point away from Centre Court since 2015.

The eight-time champion's quarterfinal with eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson is underway on No. 1 Court, after Federer was scheduled away from the All England Club's main stadium for the first time since the same stage of the tournament three years ago.

Three-time champion Novak Djokovic has opened proceedings on Centre Court against 24th-seeded Kei Nishikori.

Two-time champion Rafael Nadal and fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro will follow, while 2016 runner-up Milos Raonic and Wimbledon last-eight debutant John Isner play second on No. 1 Court.

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic headline the men's quarterfinal lineup at Wimbledon on Wednesday as the trio bid to all reach the last four at the same Grand Slam for the first time since the 2012 French Open.

Defending champion Federer will play in the unfamiliar surroundings of Wimbledon's No. 1 Court as he takes on eighth-seeded Kevin Anderson. It is the first time since 2015 that the eight-time champion will play away from Centre Court.

Having played three of his opening four matches away from Centre Court, three-time champion Djokovic's request to have his quarterfinal with 24th-seeded Kei Nishikori played in the main stadium was granted.

Two-time champion Nadal is through to the last eight at Wimbledon for the first time since 2011. He faces fifth-seeded Juan Martin del Potro, who has reached the last eight at consecutive Grand Slams for the first time since 2012.

2016 runner-up Milos Raonic faces ninth-seeded John Isner, who is playing in his first Wimbledon quarterfinal.
