Novak Djokovic secured his spot in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon by finishing his match against Hubert Hurkacz from Poland on Monday. The game had been interrupted by the 11pm curfew, with Djokovic leading by two sets.
In a hard-fought battle, Djokovic ultimately emerged victorious with a 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (8-6), 4-6, 6-4 win, despite losing the third set. The Serbian player, aiming for his eighth men’s title to equal the record, showed his resilience and determination.
Third seed Daniil Medvedev reached the quarter-finals for the first time at Wimbledon, as his Czech opponent Jiri Lehecka retired. Medvedev will now face unseeded American Christopher Eubanks, who has been the surprise standout in the men’s draw. Eubanks claimed a thrilling five-set victory against Greek fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, after previously eliminating British number one Cameron Norrie in the second round.
Djokovic’s journey at the All England Club has been formidable, as he has remained unbeaten since retiring injured in 2016. The 36-year-old Serbian has won the men’s title for the past four Championships, making him an undeniable force on the court. However, his match against Hurkacz proved to be a challenge, with Djokovic admitting to feeling miserable due to his opponent’s powerful and accurate serves.
Meanwhile, Medvedev, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, has been dominant on hard courts but less successful on grass. However, his fortunes may be changing, as he expressed his happiness with his performance on Court One, where he has never lost a match. With the upcoming quarter-finals, Medvedev looks forward to delivering his best on Centre Court.
