Second-placed tennis player Daniil Medvedev failed to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Tuesday. The Russian lost in five sets to the fourteenth-seeded Pool Hubert Hurkacz: 6-2, 6-7 (2), 6-3, 3-6 and 3-6.
The match started on Monday. Medvedev led 2-1 in sets when the match was cut short in the evening. A day later, Hurkacz struck immediately in the fourth set, which was interrupted at 4-3, and the Pole also placed a quick break in the fifth set.
Hurkacz will face Roger Federer, the number eight in the world, in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. Novak Djokovic, the number one, is on the other side of the schedule and can only face Federer in the final. Federer reached the quarterfinals of the British grand slam tournament for the seventh time in a row on Monday.
