Marin Cilic gave a superb performance to Roland Garros, reaching the semi-finals for the first time in his career. He transferred his good form from Paris to the start on the grass. On Wednesday, the Croatian defeated Alexander Bublik 7-6 (6), 7-5 and reached the quarter-finals of the ATP Tour in London.

Cilic, who defended three fixed symbols in the first game of Wednesday’s game, was impressed with his serve instructions. In 94 minutes of play, he sent nine aces, scored 49 of the 64 points he played alone, never broken.

The Croatian, the seventh seed, champion of the 2012 and 2018 championships, will face Emil Rossofori in the quarter-finals. The qualifier from Finland in the second round also did not lose serve and defeated 6-2, 7:6 (2) wild card holder, the great hope of British tennis, 20-year-old Jack Draper.

Grigor Dimitrov will not repeat the success of the 2014 season when he won the title at an event held at Queen’s Club. The Bulgarian was eliminated from this year’s edition in the 1/8 finals. Although several minutes into the match with Botik van de Zandschulp leading 4: 1, he eventually lost to the Dutchman 6: 7 (5), 3: 6.

Van de Zandschulp will play Alejandro Davidovich in the quarter-finals. Both reached the quarter-finals of the tournament, which was held on grass, for the first time in their careers. The Spaniard won on Wednesday in 4:6, 6:4, 7:5 with Alex de Minaur.

Stan Wawrinka’s opponent in the second round was Tommy Ball. The American made a surprise, and the duel that took place over two days turned out to be better than Denis Shapovalov, who took fifth place.
