Two wild matchups to end the Friday sessions at The Championships in Wimbledon, London.
We start with Matteo Berrettini v Hubert Hurkacz in the 1st match up when it wasn’t hard for Berrettini to win the first two sets, 6-3 & 6-0.
Although, he may be denied a straight sets chance to close out at the first attempt, as Hurkacz began to fought back with the 3rd set tiebreaker at 6-7 (won 4-7).
But Berrettini recovered immediately that was enough to land himself a spot in the final despite a close battle in the 4th set, 6-4.
Then we move on between Novak Djokovic & Denis Shapovalov in the 2nd semis game, where this next winner will get to face Berrettini on Sunday.
Shapovalov never gave up in each set through close battles v Novak, despite trying to stay in contention & hold him back.
But as always the opponent he faced today is a proven grand slam champion that found it so difficult, as Novak fended Shapovalov off with a straight sets win, 7-6 (7-3 tiebreaker), 7-5 & 7-5.
Well we have two brilliant final meetings over the weekend, one is Ash Barty v Karolina Pilskova later tonight for the women’s singles crown.
And Sunday gives two chances for Italy to close out in glory, not only Matteo Berrettini is looking for his first grand slam silverware.
But he hopes his home country can also beat England in the UEFA Euro 2020 Final, which is 42 mins away distance at Wembley Stadium.
Or will Novak deny Berrettini & end up with Grand Slam title No.20 on Centre Court? We’ll wait and see.
