Defending Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic

On Wednesday, we will see the men's singles at Wimbledon reach the quarterfinals.

So who's likely to make it through to Friday's semifinals?

The top half of the draw sees No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic take on the German, Florian Mayer.

28-year-old Mayer reached a career-high world ranking of No. 18 a year ago, and is seeded No. 31 for the championships.

He beat both Philipp Petzschner and Jerzy Janowicz in five sets before reaching the fourth round, where he enjoyed a four-set victory over the No. 18 seed, Richard Gasquet.

Djokovic is the defending champion and world No. 1. 

In their only previous meeting at the 2011 Dubai event, Nole won in straight sets.

Florian Mayer has no chance whatsoever of making it to the semifinals.
