I expect a great match against Novak Djokovic, says Humbert

Ugo Humbert defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime to book a fourth-round clash against Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon. The Frenchman said: "I had a good attitude, I was good in the key moments. Having played on this court on Thursday, it helped me.

I think my game fits this surface. From the first training, I felt it went well for me. I can take the ball early, my flat ball works and I like to come to the net to close points. I felt very well, I was really calm even in the last games.

It was just happiness and pleasure. There was no pressure, that was a good feeling. Against Novak Djokovic, I expect a great match with a lot of intensity. I need to have the same feelings on court and play to win. I want to play my game and let's see what happens."

On Humbert, Djokovic said: “Big serve, very explosive, very dynamic player. He's tall, has a big game from the back of the court. Flat backhand, very solid. He can play anything really. He's an all-around player. He has the really good slide serve wide.

He uses that. He uses his height very well. He's got a good technique. He's one of the leaders of the Next Generation with Felix and Hurkacz. It's great. I think it's great for tennis to have the young guys doing so well, showing the quality of the tennis they possess, but also showing the dedication, commitment, the confidence they're able to play on the big stage, challenge the best players in the world”.
