Wimbledon Tennis 2021 Highlights: Sania Mirza and Rohan Bopanna lost to Andreja Klepac and Jean-Julien Rojer 3-6, 6-3, 9-11 in the mixed doubles Round of 16. Roger Federer‘s hopes of winning a record-equalling ninth Wimbledon title ended in the quarter-finals following a 6-3 7-6(4) 6-0 defeat by Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz. Federer, the winner of 20 Grand Slam titles, had been chasing Martina Navratilova’s All England Club haul of nine singles titles.

Novak Djokovic reached his 10th semifinal at Wimbledon and 41st at a major tournament with a straight-set victory over unseeded Marton Fucsovics. Djokovic won 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 on a windy, cloudy afternoon at Centre Court to continue his pursuit of a sixth championship at the All England Club and a record-tying 20th Grand Slam title overall. The 34-year-old from Serbia also improved to 19-0 at majors this season as he pursues the first calendar-year Grand Slam by a man since Rod Laver in 1969. The top-seeded Djokovic raced to a 5-0 lead after 18 minutes against Fucsovics, a 29-year-old from Hungary who is ranked 48th and was making his major quarterfinal debut. But Djokovic then had a three-game blip and needed six set points before eventually closing out the opener.

Canadian Denis Shapovalov produced a storming finish to beat Karen Khachanov in five sets and reach the Wimbledon semi-finals on Wednesday, his deepest run at a Grand Slam tournament. The quarter-final was in danger of slipping away from the stylish 22-year-old left-hander when he trailed by two sets to one against but he hit back to win 6-4 3-6 5-7 6-1 6-4. Shapovalov, who put out twice winner Andy Murray in the third round, will play defending champion and top seed Novak Djokovic on Friday when he will bid to become only the second Canadian man to reach a Grand Slam final. He will take on Matteo Berrettini, who defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime 6-3, 5-7, 7-5, 6-3!
