One of the best tennis players of all time, Roger Federer, was eliminated in the quarter-final of this year’s Wimbledon by 14th-seed player Hubert Hurkacz.
The all-time Grand Slam champion’s hopes of winning the ninth Wimbledon title came to an end, as he was “brushed” aside by Hurkacz with an impressive win in three sets ( 6-3, 7-6 (7-4), 6-0). Hubert Hurkacz will now go on to the semi-final, where he will face Matteo Berrettini and try to reach his first Grand Slam final.
Was this the last Wimbledon for the Swiss maestro?
Speaking after his shock Wimbledon exit, Roger Federer said that he really does not know if this was his last game on the grass at Wimbledon, as at his age, you can never know what will occur next. The 39-year old later added that what was easy for him to do 10 or 20 years ago on the grass, is now missing from his game.
What’s next at Wimbledon?
The semi-finals between Denis Shopavalov and Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini and Hubert Hurkacz are scheduled for tomorrow. The first seeded player Novak Djokovic will try to reach his 11th Wimbledon final and his sixth title in the UK.
On the other hand, the WTA semi-finals between Ashleigh Barty and Angelique Kerber and Karolina Pliskova and Aryna Sabalenka will be played later today.
