MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Wimbledon Day 8 – Singles final results

Three years ago, Arthur Fils and Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard were playing each other in the semifinals of the junior boys’ event at Roland Garros.

On Monday, both were looking for quarterfinal spots with the big boys at Wimbledon. Neither had an unwinnable match; Mpetshi Perricard plays No. 25 seed Lorenzo Musetti, while Fils plays No. 9 seed Alex de Minaur.

But they couldn’t get over the finish line.

The spotlight wasbelong to Novak Djokovic and Holger Rune, who met on Centre Court in exactly the kind of clash that fires up the Serb. Who was ruthless. But the drama was on No. 1, with Alexander Zverev and Taylor Fritz.

On the women’s side, a tetchy, quirky, entertaining one between Jelena Ostapenko and Yulia Putintseva ended up … fairly one-way traffic for Ostapenko.
