A Bitter Farewell in the Wimbledon

At the third Grand Slam tennis tournament of the season, Roger Federer beaten in Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Federer, who won 8 Wimbledon Grand Slam title to date, went down in the Wimbledon quarterfinals to Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz. 18-years-old Hurkacz won the game end of one hour and 48 minutes. Hurkacz is the first player to beat Federer in straight sets at Wimbledon in 19 years.

Thus, he missed his chance to get another victory in the Grand Slam tournament and hunt for his 21st Grand Slam title. If Djokovic beats his rival on Sunday, he will get his 20st Grand Slam title and to tie with Federer and Nadal.

Although it is a potential farewell to Wimbledon, Federer has another goal is to compete for Olympic gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics.
