Fierce battle, and one of the toughest matches in his career, has awaited Richie in Wimbledon’s final in order to secure jubilee 10th major title. Match ended as a gruelling 5 setter, Richie overcoming quick first set loss in a process at the racket of Pablo Hernandez, 1-6 7-5 6-2 6-7 6-3.
Richie stormed into finals in mindblowing fashion, losing all-in-all only 15 games in 5 matches, while facing such player as Talwoutte or a returning old guard VMoe. Richie captured his first grandslam title, after exactly 4 years since his Wimbledon 2016 succesful run, showing everyone why is he undisputed GOAT of the tour and that he still has a lot to say for the big games prizes.
Pablo on the other hand had to fight hard to secure chance to battle for his second Wimbledon crown. First tough obstacle he had to face was reiging Roland Garros champion TesterAVI, currently a man to beat indeed, against whom he lost in Fever-tree Championships prior to Wimbledon. Against all odds, however, he dispatched TesterAVI in four sets. Round later, he then stood up against another returning player, one of best players ever to play on the tour, Vramvrim. Despite losing first set, Pablo recuperated quickly and did not give Vram much chances in the next three sets and finished the match in four sets rather quickly.
All eyes are now focused on Olympics where best compete again, big matches already played and few ahead of us still.
