Roger Federer (39 years old) returned to being competitive in a Grand Slam, reached the second week of Wimbledon But the dream of the 21st Major will not be possible in London: Hubert Hurkacz beat the Swiss 6-3, 7-6 (4) and 6-0 in the quarterfinals.
Hurkacz, who had just eliminated Medvedev in the round of 16 (played most of the game on Monday and completed on Tuesday), took advantage of a break in the sixth game to lead the first set. In the second set, he managed to turn a break against (he was 1-4) and ended up winning in the tiebreak.
The third set showed a very dominant version of the Pole who did not give up games and won 6-0. Hurkacz, who was Miami Masters 1000 champion this season, reaches his first Grand Slam semifinal and becomes the second Pole to do so after Jerzy Janowicz (Wimbledon 2013).
Federer, a finalist in the 2019 edition of Wimbledon, played his second Grand Slam after an injury that took him off the court for more than a year. The Swiss had reached the round of 16 at Roland Garros, where he did not appear to play against Matteo Berrettini. On your horizon appear the Olympic Games and the US Open?
