    ASH VS ANG

    Ash Barty does not fear Angelique Kerber – but knows she will have to step it up against the 2018 Wimbledon champ in Thursday’s semi-final.

    World No1 Barty made the last four by crushing fellow Aussie pal Ajla Tomljanovic – who had overcome Brit sensation Emma Raducanu – 6-1 6-3 in just over an hour.

    Barty, 25, has both won twice and lost twice against Kerber, but this will be their first competitive meeting since they faced off in Wuhan three years ago.

    The queen of Queensland said: “Angie has an incredible record here. She’s made multiple finals. She’s one of the best grass courters going around.

    “It’s not scary or overwhelming, it’s just exciting to have the challenge of playing someone who is comfortable on these courts, who knows how to win this tournament.”

    CHAMP ON THE MARCH

    Angelique Kerber, the only Wimbledon champion left in the women's singles draw, put on an impressive display on Tuesday as she marched into the last four at the All England Club.

    The German beat Karolina Muchova 6-2 6-3 and will now face World No1 Ash Barty in the semi-finals.

    IT CAN HAPPEN

    Emma Raducanu's dad Ian believes the teenager's Wimbledon exit could be due to nerves after she was forced to retire during her fourth round clash.

    The 18-year-old's fairytale run at SW19 came to an end on Monday night as she bowed out against Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic.

    Raducanu narrowly lost the first set 6-4, before retiring at 3-0 down in the second set due to breathing difficulties.

    And Ian Raducanu has broken his silence on his daughter's heartbreaking defeat, as he claimed the level of competition could have played a factor.

    Speaking to the Telegraph following Emma's last-16 loss, Ian declared that he was "proud" of her as "many people are".

    Asked why he thought she had retired, he remarked: "I think it's the level."

    Pressed on whether nerves could have played a role, he simply stated: "Who knows?"


    HUB OF THE MATTER

    Hubert Hurkacz overcame Daniil Medvedev in sensational circumstances yesterday to book a a place in the last eight of Wimbledon.

    He will now face 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer in the quarter-finals on Centre Court later today.

    WHO WINS

    Who takes the women's singles crown from here? Just four women remain as they all hope to become the 2021 Wimbledon champion.

      TODAY ON COURT 1

      And the other two men's singles quarter-finals are being played on Court 1 today:

      • K. Khachanov (25) vs D. Shapovalov (10)
      • M. Berrettini (7) vs F. Auger-Aliassime (16)

      TODAY ON CENTRE COURT

      Today's matches on Centre Court are two quarter-finals in the men's singles draw.

      • N. Djokovic (1) vs M. Fucsovics
      • R. Federer (6) vs H. Hurkacz (14)

      CAPACITY CROWD

      Wimbledon's Centre Court has become the first outdoor stadium in the UK to be at maximum capacity since the coronavirus lockdown began in March 2020.

      The iconic arena was packed for yesterday's quarter-final ties, including the women's singles clash between Ons Jabeur and Aryna Sabalenka.

      Wimbledon is at full capacity as a test event for the government's Events Research Programme.

      Social distancing and masks are not required for spectators while they enjoy the tennis in their seats.

      Court No1 at SW19 will also be at maximum capacity until the tournament finishes on Sunday.

      Nearly 15,000 fans flocked to Centre Court to watch the match between Jabeur and Sabalenka, with the latter winning 6-4, 6-3 to reach the semi-finals.

      HURK HEROICS

      Hubert Hurkacz reckons a sneak preview of Roger Federer’s home turf gives him the best chance of beating the greatest man on grass on Wednesday.

      Hurkacz was forced to play out his interrupted clash with world No2 Daniil Medvedev on Centre Court on Tuesday after rain stopped play on Monday.

      It leaves the unfancied Pole less time to prepare to face his boyhood idol and eight-time Wimbledon champ Federer in their quarter-final.

      But the 14th seed said: “Playing today might have helped me because I got used to the indoor conditions, the conditions on the big court, how the ball bounces there, all the crowd.

      "I think that actually can help me in my next match.

      “On the outside courts, the ball bounces a little bit differently. I mean, just being out there, it's so special.

      “I'm just enjoying it a lot. I need to be prepared tactically. I'll speak to my coach and we'll be as ready as we can.

      "Roger is a special player. What he's achieved throughout his whole career, it's unbelievable. The way he plays is also special.”

       

      RADUCANU ON BREATHING ISSUES

      British teenage sensation Emma Raducanu has spoken for the first time about the breathing difficulties she suffered which forced her to pull out of her last 16 tie earlier this week.

      Speaking to the BBC, she said: "I found it very difficult to regulate my breathing.

      "It was emphasised my some long rallies we had towards the end of the first set which made it tough for me to keep my composure and breathing in check.

      "At the beginning of the second set was when I was struggling with it the most and I called the trainer.

      "I don't know what caused it, I think it was a combination of everything that has gone on behind the scenes and the accumulation of the excitement and the buzz."

        GOOD MORNING TENNIS FANS

        World No1 Ashleigh Barty made the Wimbledon semi-finals by crushing fellow Aussie pal Ajla Tomljanovic – who had overcome British sensation Emma Raducanu – 6-1 6-3 in just over an hour.

        Barty is now set to face off against Angelique Kerber in the final four of the major tennis tournament.

        The Australian star said: “Angie has an incredible record here. She's made multiple finals. She's one of the best grass courters going around.

        “It's not scary or overwhelming, it's just exciting to have the challenge of playing someone who is comfortable on these courts, who knows how to win this tournament.”

        Three-time Slam winner Kerber has returned to top form on the grass after a poor year and was far too good for Czech ace Karolina Muchova, who she beat 6-2 6-3.

        The German, 33, said: “The last few months it was really tough. I never stopped believing in myself, in my team.

        “I'm really looking forward to play against Ash. I know that I have to play my best tennis, and she will push me to that, to give everything out there.”

        Meanwhile, Raducanu explained that she retired from her match with Tomljanovic because she struggled with her breathing and felt dizzy during their fourth-round Wimbledon clash.

        Raducanu tweeted: “Hi guys, I wanted to let everyone know that I’m feeling much better this morning. First up I want to congratulate Ajla on an incredible performance and I’m sorry our match ended the way it did.

        “I was playing the best tennis of my life in front of an amazing crowd this week and I think the whole experience caught up with me. At the end of the first set, after some super intense rallies, I started to breathe heavily and felt dizzy.

        “The medical team advised me not to continue and, although it felt like the hardest thing in the world not to be able to finish my Wimbledon on the court, I was not well enough to carry on.

        “I want to thank the people who have cheered me on every single match, I wanted to win so badly for you! I also want to thank the All England Club, my team, the LTA, my parents and friends.

        “Last night will go a long way to helping me learn what it takes to perform at the top. I will cherish everything we have achieved together this week and come back stronger! Can’t wait to see what’s next on my journey”
