Roger Federer does not stop writing history rich in Wimbledon. After becoming the longest-lived tennis player to reach the quarterfinals at the All England, now, the Swiss will seek to extend his seal until the semifinals and for that he will have to beat the Pole Hubert hurkacz (18th).
With little more than a month to reach 40 years, Federer knows that there are not many chances he has left to defend his reign on English soil. On the way he already left the French Adrian Mannarino and Richard Gasquet, the local Cameron Norrie, and the Italian Lorenzo Sonego, losing only three sets. It is time to face Hurkacz, in a duel that has only one precedent: Indian Wells Masters 1000, with victory for the Swiss 6-4 and 6-4.
The game, scheduled for the second turn of the central court, can be seen by ESPN 2. The winner must face the winner of the duel between Italian Matteo Berrettini (9th) and Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (19th).
