(Wimbledon) Exits to bow, Vasek Pospisil could hardly ask for more Wednesday at Wimbledon. The Canadiens bowed logically before the third seed Andy Murray 4-6, 5-7, 4-6, but took the honors Short Central and could play in front of Prince William and Kate Middleton, who were first place in the royal box.
Having already played seven matches and 31 innings since the start of the tournament, Pospisil was leaving with a serious handicap facing Murray. The 25-year-old has still offered a great contrast to his rival, although he has slowed noticeably as the game progressed. In the third round, we have seen the knee to the ground.
“I played a lot of tennis, then to know how It could affect me it’s hard to say, Pospisil said. But I started to feel heavier, especially in the third set.
“I played, I do not know, something like 31 sets in seven days. Then here I am against Andy likes long rallies. I wanted to be more refreshed, But it turned still been a fantastic week. And that’s only the beginning. ”
Murray, obviously the crowd favorite, was mainly applied to manage its services and has granted only one break point to Pospisil (in the last game) throughout the game. For its part, the Canadian gave up six in total and Murray converted three, one in each inning.
The winner, tournament champion in 2013, will face Roger Federer (2nd favorite) Friday in the semifinals.
Pospisil leaves Wimbledon richest 263,500 pounds (nearly $ 500,000) and performance allow it to re-enter the top 30 of the men’s standings next week. It probably will change from 54 th to 29 th, spectacular growth that will open the doors of several major tournaments and will make him a top seed in the upcoming International of the United States.
Before Wimbledon, Vasek had never been beyond the third round in the Grand Slam. Already doubles champion last year on the London grass, he showed this week that he would now reckon with him every time we return to Wimbledon!
In principle, Pospisil will travel to Ostend in Belgium – probably after a few days off – to find the Canadian Davis Cup team and compete in the quarterfinal encounter of the World Group against Belgium on 18 and 19 July.
