Juan Martin del Potro played through the pain barrier to reach his first Wimbledon semi-final as the former US Open champion defeated Spanish fourth seed David Ferrer 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (7/5) on Wednesday.

Argentine eighth seed Del Potro, who survived a nasty fall in the first game of the quarter-final, will play world number one Novak Djokovic for a place in Sunday's final.
