With an easy Wimbledon victory over Lorenzo Sonego, Roger Federer makes history.
In their Wimbledon fourth-round match, Roger Federer made history by defeating Lorenzo Sonego in straight sets.
After easily overcoming Lorenzo Sonego, Roger Federer became the oldest male player in the Open era to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals. After a humiliating early exit at the Halle Open, Federer entered Wimbledon with some reservations about his match fitness on grass.
He also appeared rusty in his first round encounter against Adrian Mannarino, obtaining a walkover after the Frenchman retired due to injury.
In the second round, Federer ended Cameron Norrie’s run with a far more routine victory over Richard Gasquet.
In the fourth set, Sonego was expected to give Federer a stronger fight, but the Italian was unable to overcome the 20-time Grand Slam champion.
Federer cruised to victory in just over two hours, adding to his storied career’s legacy.
In 1975, at the age of 40, Ken Rosewall became the oldest player to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon in the Open era.
But Federer has now progressed to the quarter-finals, where he will face the winner of the match between Hubert Hurkacz and Daniil Medvedev.
Because the match between Medvedev and Hurkacz was canceled due to rain, the Swiss tennis legend will have a slight advantage in his preparations.
With no break of serve in the fourth set, the No. 2 seed fell down 2-1 in sets.
