Roger Federer, the eight-time Wimbledon champion, was faces a defeat in straight sets by Hubert Hukarcz of Poland in the tournament’s quarterfinal match.
Roger Federer was bagel for the first time in his illustrious Wimbledon career, losing the third set 6-0.
It was the second time in his career that the Swiss Maestro had dropped a set without winning a single game.
Meanwhile, the former world No. 1, Federer only converted one of four break-point opportunities, while Hurkacz converted five of the 15 break-point opportunities.
Roger Federer also only won 67 percent of first serve points, compared to 79 percent for the Polish player.
Federer last won a Grand Slam championship at the 2018 Australian Open, and it appears that he will not win any more as a slew of youthful challengers emerge.
“It’s super special to have played Roger Fedrer here, it’s a dream come true,” said Hurkacz.
“He’s done so many special things here.”
World number 18 Hurkacz, 24, had never got beyond the third round of a Grand Slam before this Wimbledon.
He was a break up on a sluggish-looking Federer in the sixth game of the opening set, inspired by having defeated world number two Daniil Medvedev in five games in the last 16.
He is only the second Polish guy to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals, the other being Jerzy Janowicz in 2013.
For a spot in Sunday’s final, he’ll face either Italy’s Matteo Berrettini or Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime.
