A rain-interrupted first week of Wimbledon has come to an end. Novak Djokovic and Elena Rybakina remain on course to defend their Wimbledon titles.
Djokovic has continued his dominance at the All England Club as he bids to equal Roger Federer’s men’s record of eight titles. This will extend his winning run at Wimbledon to 31 matches in a row.
Rybakina, who lifted her first grand slam title when she defeated Ons Jabeur in last year’s final, had her preparations for the tournament disrupted by illness. But she produced a statement performance on Centre Court as she thrashed the British No.1 Katie Boulter 6-1, 6-1 on Saturday.
Madison Keys had a test against new up-and-comer Andreeva, however, managed to maintain composure and win the third set comfortably 6-2.
Top seeds Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek remain in contention but British hopes in singles are over after Boulter’s exit. Followed defeats for Cameron Norrie, Liam Brody and Andy Murray’s heartbreaking loss to Stefanos Tsitsipas.
Today, Tuesday, and Wednesday the Wimbledon quarter-finals are on schedule, hopefully with no rain delays.
Carlos Alcaraz passed another test to reach the quarter-finals at Wimbledon for the first time. Being pushed to four sets by Nicolas Jarry in the third round. The world No.1 had to fight back from a set down to see off former finalist Matteo Berrettini. 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3.
After his match Alcaraz said ”My dream is to play a final here, to win the title one day. I hope I reach that dream this year but right now it’s great to be in the quarter-finals.”
