Hubert’s Centre of attention
They say you should never meet your heroes, but try telling Hurkacz that. The Pole admitted that he started playing tennis because of Federer and here he was meeting him in the Wimbledon quarter-final on Centre Court. Not many people gave him much of a chance before the match, but he delivered a devastating performance, winning in straight sets. Not only did he send the eight-time champion and king of Centre Court packing, he also did it by dishing out Federer’s first bagel since 2008.

Djokovic continued to amaze.
From boys to men
Shapovalov and Marton Fucsovics had differing results in their quarter-finals but they had something in common, in being the two men in the draw who had won the junior title. Fucsovics won it in 2010 and Shapovalov followed suit six years later to show that there is a clear pathway for success on the grass. Both men have had breakthrough tournaments in 2021, with Shapovalov making it through to the semi-final with a five-set win over Karen Khachanov and Fucsovics bowing out to defending champion Djokovic.
