The path at Wimbledon 2021 of the home-crowd hero Andy Murray ends in the third round. The Scot honors the court but he must surrender to the Canadian Denis Shapovalov, winner in over two and a half hours with the result of 6-4 6-2 6 -2.
Despite a result that would seem to be a dominated match, the British tennis player fought as long as he could but surrendered to the weariness of the last few matches that saw the young North American talent keep control of the game from the first to the last minute.
Shapovalov will face in a very interesting match in the Round of 16 Roberto Bautista Agut, winner without particular worries over Koepfer in three sets. At the first participation continues to surprise the young talent Sebastian Korda who wins in four sets a hard-fought match against the British Daniel Evans.
Korda shows that he is very comfortable on this surface and beats a nutshell like the landlord Evans. Argentinian Diego Schwartzman comes out of the top seed, knocked out in four sets after a hard-fought match against Marten Fucsovics.
