Federer loses in quarterfinals… Djokovic wins
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) – Eight-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer has been beaten in straight sets by 14th-seeded Hubert Hurkacz in the quarterfinals at the All England Club, 6-3, 7-6, 6-0. Hurkacz is a 24-year-old from Poland who had not made it past the third round at any major tournament until this one.
Federer, who turns 40 next month, wasn’t able to summon the serving and shot-making that have carried him to 20 Grand Slam titles overall. He remains tied with Rafael Nadal for the most by a man in tennis history.
Top-seeded Novak Djokovic continues to pursue his 20th Grand Slam title and sixth Wimbledon championship. The 34-year-old from Serbia reached his 10th Wimbledon semifinal with a straight-set victory over unseeded Marton Fucsovics of Hungary, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.
Djokovic will face Denis Shapovalov, who reached his first Grand Slam semifinal by edging No. 25 Karen Khachanov of Russia 6-4, 3-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-4.
Matteo Berrettini became the first Italian man in 61 years to reach the Wimbledon semifinals by beating seventh-seeded Felix Auger-Aliassime, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3.
