The first of the big players in the men’s Wimbledon tournament is out. Gilles Muller beat Rafael Nadal on Monday in a thrilling game that lasted over four hours.
With Andy Murray and Roger Federer already through, many had expected the big four to all make it into the quarter-finals. However, that is now not going to happen. Novak Djokovic will have to wait until Tuesday to play after his game was abandoned due to the Nadal game over running.
Nadal had looked good in what was shaping up to be a very open Wimbledon men’s event. With all the top players looking good, we had been expecting some fantastic quarter-finals, those will now take place minus the Spaniard.
Elsewhere, Roger Federer continued his impressive display, with another 3-0 victory today against Grigor Dimitrov. He has yet to drop a set and looks in great form going into the quarter-final stage. However, he has set up what looks like it will be a fantastic quarter-final on Wednesday against the Canadian Milos Raonic.
Andy Murray continues to play well and he is improving with every game he is playing. He also plays his semi-final on Wednesday and he will face Sam Querrey. The American has already been involved in some great games and hopefully, Wednesday’s will be the same.
With Novak Djokovic expected to go through on Tuesday, we will see three of the big four seeds in the men’s Wimbledon quarter-finals. We have seen some great tennis so far, but in my opinion, things are only just warming up and on Wednesday, this tournament is going to really come to life. As we draw closer to the final stages, we look set for a great few days at Wimbledon.
