Djokovic – Fucsovics
Novak was broken once during his straight-set quarterfinal win. The toughest moment of the match for him was probably a couple of his slips.
Then to face this question at the start of your press conference. eek.
Djokovic’s reaction, probably.
Shapovalov – Khachanov
Less than a year ago, Shapovalov had lost a heartbreaker when trying to reach his maiden slam semi at the US Open. He rallied from 1-2 down in sets to make it happen this time.
It wasn’t always easy.
In the end, it all felt great, beating Karen, 6-3, 4-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-4. Never in doubt that they would go to five sets
Although, apparently, he has tasted such success as a child!
Big props to Karen.
Hurkacz – Federer
Roger’s grass return ends with a straight-set defeat to first-time slam quarterfinalist Hurkacz.
There were some sprinkles of magic.
But for the most parts, it was just a compilation of mis-hits and shanks. And one unfortunate slip to create this surreal moment.
Some history was made with that bagel final set. Federer’s second-ever 6-0 set loss since 1999.
All credit to Hubi for never letting Federer come back in, even in the second-set tiebreak.
Berrettini – Auger Aliassime
Queens champion Berrettini is back into a slam semifinal (2019 US Open). He dropped the second set but beat Felix in four.
Meanwhile, big development in the women’s doubles. Vesnina and Kudermetova beat top seeds Krejcikova’/Siniakova to reach the semis.
They beat the Czechs, 9-7 in the decider, and this feat was not achieved by always standing on feet.
We are leaving you with this incredibly funny Mo Lahyani moment.
