Wednesday, June 30, the main results
* Big disappointment for Ugo Humbert, the best French chance on this Wimbledon, who fell against a hell of a client in the first round named Nick Kyrgios. The Australian, back on the circuit after a long confinement, was hungry for tennis.
Kyrgios, facing one of the best specialists of the moment on grass, was able to bounce back after being led two sets to one before concluding today with a 9/7 in the 5th set. A cruel outcome for Humbert.
* While Djokovic took out Anderson in three sets, in the second round, Lucas Pouille lost from the start in 4 sets against the English who climbs Cameron Norrie.

The 1/8th finals
Novak Djokovic (CHI) vs. Cristian Garin (CHI): 6/2 6/4 6/2
The world No. 1 arrives in the quarter without having experienced the slightest alert and one wonders who can prevent him from winning a 20th GC.
Marton Fucsovics (HON) vs Andrey Rublev (RUS): 6/3 4/6 4/6 6/0 6/3
Surprise on court N°2 with the Hungarian who smashes his Russian opponent in the last two sets before finding a quarter in GC for the first time in his career.
Karen Khachanov (RUS) vs. Sebastian Korda (TCH): 3/6 6/4 6/3 5/7 10/8
Great fight and superb resistance from the American against the power of the Russian who knew how to make the difference at the very end of the match.
Denis Shapovalov (CAN) vs. Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP): 6/1 6/3 7/5
Very impressive, the left-handed Canadian continues to wreak havoc. His Spanish rival was punished in three rounds.
Matteo Berrettini (ITA) vs Ilia Ivashka (BLR): 6/4 6/3 6/1:
The Italian sweeps his rival in three sets after 1h46 of play.
Felix Auger Aliassime (CAN) vs. Alexander Zverev (GER): 6/4 7/6 3/6 3/6 6/4
The Canadian, now coached by Toni Nadal, achieved one of the best performances of his career by leaving Zverev after a big match, and a completely crazy 5th set. Like his compatriot Shapovalov, he enjoyed the honor of a 1/4 final at Wimbledon.

Roger Federer (SUI) vs. Lorenzo Sonego (ITA): 7/5 6/4 6/2
Easy winner in three rounds, the Swiss became the oldest player qualified for a quarter in GC, a level he reached, it’s monstrous, for the 58th time in his career.
Hubert Hurkacz (POL) vs Daniil Medvedev (RUS): 6/2 6/7 3/6 6/3 6/3
Big performance for the winner of the Miami Masters 1000 who dominates the world No. 2 in five sets during a match with twists which took place over two days.
The 1/4 finals
Novak Djokovic vs Marton Fucsovics: 6/3 6/4 6/4
Quiet match, one more, for the world No. 1 who made short work of his Hungarian rival, who did not have the weapons to make him doubt.
Karen Khachanov vs. Denis Shapovalov : 4/6 6/3 7/5 1/6 4/6
Superb fight between the Russian and the Canadian of parents and Russian heart, with the youngest who will pass the shoulder in the 4th and 5th set by signing a break at 4/4 at the best of times. The talented left-hander, who is wreaking havoc on grass, will face the world No. 1 on Friday.
Matteo Berrettini vs Felix Auger Aliassime: 6/3 5/7 7/5 6/3
Big performance for the Italian colossus, 1.96m for 95kg, who imposes himself as a boss against the Canadian, yet full of confidence. Impressive and also surfing on an ultra positive dynamic, Berrettini joined the last four of a GC for the second time in his career.
Hubert Hurkacz vs Roger Federer: 6/3 7/6 6/0
The note is salty, very salty for the master of the place who completely missed his match. Admittedly his 2nd set was rather good but he will have multiplied the unforced errors throughout the meeting.
Opposite the Polish giant, on his way, remained calm, precise and powerful, leaving little chance to his rival by relying most often on a big first ball.
To the point of inflicting a severe 6/0 on Federer in the 3rd set, it is only the 5th time in his career that such a disappointment has fallen on him.
The 1/2 finals
Novak Djokovic vs Denis Shapovalov: 7/6 7/5 7/5
Manhandled at the start of the match by the young Canadian, absolutely amazing and full of audacity, the boss remained calm. He lets the storm pass, gradually sets up his game before debreaking and winning the tie break.
During the next two sets Djoko, and his enormous mind, patiently waits for the right moment to take the serve from the left-hander Shapovalov before concluding. Great art that takes him to the final, very close to a 20th Grand Slam title, very close to Federer and Nadal!
Matteo Berrettini vs. Hubert Hurkacz: 6/3 6/0 6/7 6/4
Historic performance for the Italian who today becomes the first player from his country in the Wimbledon final. Very, very impressive since the start of this fortnight, he took Hurkacz by the throat from the start of the match.
Very comfortable in service and especially in return, he will punish the Polish giant during the first two sets. The second half of the match will be more balanced but Berrettini was well and truly above his rival and will experience his first Grand Slam final on Sunday.
Novak Djokovic vs Matteo Berrettini: 6/7 6/4 6/4 6/3
Fabulous, immense, magnificent, incredible and above all immense Djokovic who enters this Sunday, July 11 a little more in the history of tennis. Winner at Wimbledon for the 6th time in his career, he adds a 20th Grand Slam to his list.
Nine times winner in Australia, twice at Roland Garros and three times in New York, he is now the equal of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, the equal of the greatest champions in the history of the game.
Sometimes battered by Berrettini’s service and forehand, the boss was patient and much more consistent than his rival. Despite the loss of a first set that seemed promised to him, he reacted very quickly at the start of the second round, before never letting go of his prey again.
Berrettini will have tried everything, he bows like everyone else to the superiority of the “Djoker” now on the way to an almost unique calendar Grand Slam. While waiting for New York, he becomes the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the first three GCs of the year.
🇷🇸 @DjokerNole is the first man since Rod Laver (1969) to win the first three Grand Slams of the season 🙌
