The generational change breaks more and more force in the circuit. In this edition of Wimbledon, More than half of the tennis players who bought a ticket to play the round of 16 had never done it before. The list is headed by Daniil Medvedev (2nd), which advanced after a hard-fought win over Marin Cilic (37th).
Some more experienced, others not so much, the point is that they are all under 30 years old. The biggest is Marton Fucsovics (48th), that at 29 years old he will play the pass to the quarterfinals against another tennis player who is in the same situation, Andrey Rublev (7th). The 23-year-old Russian has already made it to the Australian Open, Roland Garros and US Open quarters, only to do so at Wimbledon.
The winner of that duel will go to Novak Djokovic (1st) or Cristian Garin (20th), the Chilean who is another of those who will debut in the second week of the London contest. Logically, it will not have a simple stop.
At 20 years old, Sebastian Korda (50 °) is one of the promises of the generational change. In his first participation in the round of 16 he will face Karen Khachanov (29th), while another of the debutants will be Denis Shapovalov (12th), that if he surpasses Roberto Bautista Agut (10th), he will reach his second participation in the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam (the previous one was last year at the US Open).
Belarusian Ilya Ivashka (79th) is having a great moment at 27 years old and will have the possibility of his career against Matteo Berrettini (9th). In addition, in the lower part of the table, the winner of this duel will face Alexander Zverev (6th) or Felix Auger-Aliassime (19th), who will make his debut in the second round.
The great feat will have to be achieved Lorenzo Sonego (27 °), who must surpass Roger Federer (8th) to continue climbing at Wimbledon. The 26-year-old Italian already has two titles and this is his first time in the fourth round of this competition.
By last, Hubert Hurkacz (18th), who did not know the second week in London, will play against Medvedev (2nd). In this way, Wimbledon has a wide variety of tennis players who are taking their first steps in the decisive stages of a Grand Slam.
