Roger Federer falls in a match with Cameron Norrie. After him, the Swiss enjoyed the process.

Thirty-nine-year-old Swiss even had the mood to joke after triumphing in the 3rd round of singles over British Cameron Norrie 6: 4, 6: 4, 5: 7, 6: 4 when he declared:

“This is my last grand slam tournament (then came a dramatic pause and a touch – note) before I was forty.”

The native of Basel will celebrate it on August 6 and still believes that by then it will add a record ninth Wimbledon and the twenty-first grand slam title.

“For a while I thought I was delivering it in three sets, but the opponent was excellent. I’m glad I managed it and I’m really relieved.

I also think I kept a high standard and I can be happy with how I played, “said Roger Federer on the ATP Tour website.

Twenty-five-year-old Norrie is currently on the 34th place in the ATP rankings, which is his career maximum, and this year he has a match balance of 31-14.

Although he did not win the tournament title, he was in the finals of the event in Estoril, Portugal, Lyon, France, and more recently on the grass at London’s Queen’s Club. It was a great challenge for Federer to break his resistance.

“The hat down as he pushed me is having a great season. He has played a lot of matches in many tournaments. That’s why I’m extremely happy that I found my way back to victory in the fourth set.

I worked very well with emotions. I didn’t let myself be disturbed and stayed calm until the end of the match. Only then did it all break out, “Federer added.

Federer will play in the eighth finals on the grass of the All England Club for the eighteenth time, which is a record called open era of tennis after 1968.

The legendary American Jimmy Connors has two fewer participations, the third is the Serb Novak Djokovic with thirteen and the fourth is the German Boris Becker with twelve participations.

Federer’s opponent in the top 16 will be Italian Lorenzo Sonego, the tournament’s twenty-three. As Matteo Berrettini also reached the round of 16 finals, this means that Italy will only have a double representation in this phase of the London tournament for the third time in history.

In 1949 it was Giovanni Cucellu and Rolando del Bello and six years later Nicola Pietrangeli and Giuseppe Merlo.

Before the match with Soneg (balance 1–0), Federer was happy to state:

“I feel like I’m picking up the right rhythm. This victory is a reference for me about the rise of my game and that it could continue to work. I’m looking forward to the next match. “
