Daniil Medvedev gets his first quarterfinals at Wimbledon. The number three in the world overtook the Czech Jiri Lehecka who withdrew on the score 2-0 for his opponent.

An unprecedented result for the Russian, never before had he reached the top 8 on the prestigious lawns of the All England Club. His next opponent will be Christopher Eubanks, an absolute novelty.

The American took out Stefanos Tsitsipas in a thriller match, which lasted 5 sets.

The Russian explained at the press conference: “I played very well. I served great. I had good depth in my shots. It was probably the best match of the tournament. At the same time, of course, when Jiri retired, I realized that something probably bothered him throughout the game. It’s a shame. I hope he can recover quickly because he is an extraordinary player.”

Medvedev wants to go all the way to the end of the tournament

For Daniil, as mentioned, it’s an unprecedented result, but he certainly doesn’t want to stop there: “I’ve always believed in myself. I always want to win these tournaments. Wimbledon was not a big success for me. But now it’s already the best result of my career. I don’t want to stop. I’m playing great. I’m looking forward to the next matches and I want to try and win for sure.”

About his next opponent: “He’s a great player. Miami was his first, shall we say, breakthrough. That’s where he entered the top hundred, coming from qualifying, and reached the quarterfinals. The best result of him at the moment. He played very well against me.

It was a very tough match. I was on the ball. I managed to beat him. But it was a difficult match. He’s fit again. He just won his first ATP title. Here in the quarterfinals he beat Stefanos in five sets, incredible. I know I have to be 100% and at my best physically, tennis and mentally to try and beat him.”
