After the departure of Rublev and Safiullin, now only Daniil is on the individual grids of the Russians.
On Tuesday, July 11, the quarterfinals began in the most famous grass tournament in the world. There were four individual matches: two for men in the bottom half of the group and two for women in the top half. Two Russians also took part in them. But first things first.
Results of the ninth day. July 11, Tuesday
In men, a Russian played in all the matches of that day. Roman Safiullin managed to level the score in sets in the match with Yannick Sinner, but then the Italian was able to score and win in four sets. However, according to the results of this tournament, Román will take off at 43rd place in the ATP ranking.
Thanks Roman! Safiullin lost in 1/4 of Wimbledon, but will recover 49 places in the ranking
Andrei Rublev also managed to fight Novak Djokovic. The Russian even led in sets – 1: 0, but the further the match progressed, the more and more the advantage of the famous Serb became. As a result, the 23-time Slams champion also won in four sets and reached the semifinals, where he will play Sinner.

In women, both representatives of the top 4 seeds in this half of the grid managed to reach this stage: Iga Sviontek (1) and Jessica Pegula (4). However, neither of them reached the semifinals. The American was stopped by the Czech Marketa Vondrousova, and the Polish tennis player was stopped by the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, who got into the base of the tournament thanks to a wild card from the organizers. After this meeting in the 1/4 finals, Iga Sviontek risks losing the title of the first racket in the world if her only rival for her leadership, Arina Sobolenko, reaches the final of the tournament.
Women. 1/4 final Vondrousova (Czech Republic) – Pegula (USA, 4) – 6:4, 2:6, 6:4. Svitolina (Ukraine, WC) – Swiatek (Poland, 1) – 7:5, 6:7, 6:2.
