Wimbledon 2018: Gulbis, Harrison and Kubler reach main draw. Tomic bows out

The final qualifying round of men's singles at Wimbledon has brought some very interesting matches and great battles, with best-of-five sets win required to get into the main draw. Ruben Bemelmans has reached the main draw for the fifth time (the third in a row) after a dominant 6-3 6-1 6-2 win over Bernard Tomic in an hour and 20 minutes. Tomic played well on grass in the last few weeks but he had nothing to offer in this match, playing with a lot of physical problems and barely finishing the match without retiring.

Ruben fired 17 aces and he saved all five break points he faced to keep the pressure on Bernard who had nothing in the tank, facing nine break points and getting broken six times to left the court after just 80 minutes. The Belgian took control right from the start and he broke in the opening game of the match to take a 4-2 lead.

He had to save a break point in game eight, closing the set with another break in game nine for a 6-3. Ruben fought off another four break chances in the first two service games of the second set and he earned breaks in games two and six to grab the set 6-1 and move closer to the finish line.

The Belgian sailed through the deciding set as Tomic suffered more and more on the court, scoring two breaks in games one and seven and sealing the deal with a hold at 15 to secure his spot in the main draw. Final qualifying round results:
