On Wednesday, July 12, the quarterfinals of the most famous grass tournament in the world ended. There were 4 individual matches: two for men in the top half of the group and two for women in the bottom half. Daniil Medvedev also participated in them. But first things first.
Results of the day 10. July 12, Wednesday
Daniil Medvedev has already played the 5th match in the tournament and for the first time reached the 5th set, and the Russian was inferior to the American Christopher Eubanks 1:2 in sets, but Daniil took the 4th game in a tie-break, he equalized the score in sets – 2:2, and in the decider he noticeably improved against the background of a tired opponent.
Two steps from the title! Medvedev made a brilliant comeback, and for the first time, in the Wimbledon half-final.
Keep in mind that for Medvedev this is the first Wimbledon semifinal of his career, and only the sixth top-four hit on TBSh.
