Anderson survived match point and then broke with a backhand down the line, going on to take the match to a fourth as Federer spurned three break points, an ace ending his run of 34 consecutive sets at Wimbledon.
World number one Nadal faces a tricky test against power-hitter del Potro in his first Wimbledon quarter-final since 2011.

"It was just one of those days where you hope to get by somehow", Federer said. Federer's forehand was inaccurate much of the day and he seemed bothered by Anderson's power. The 20-time grand slam victor lost the set 6-4 as Anderson's relentless, powerful serve sent the match into a fifth and deciding set.
Asked if he expected more from an opponent in the world's top 30, Federer said: "I think it's a tough matchup for him maybe against me".
"I had my chances so it's disappointing, but he was consistent and solid".
It was Federer who faltered at 11-11, double-faulting to hand Anderson a break point which he converted when the defending champion's tired forehand smacked the net.
