Wimbledon is the only tournament in which doubles compete in the match format to win three sets. This only adds to the game’s appeal, which is best underlined by Friday’s semi-final stand at an exceptional level.

The first meeting lasted four hours. Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell lost 0-2 in sets with Rajiv Ram/Joe Salisbury, but in the third set tiebreak they defended two games and eventually won 3:6, 6:7 (1), 7:6 (9)), 6 : 4, 6: 2.

For the Australians, this is the second joint final of the Grand Slam tournaments. At this year’s Australian Open they lost to Thansi Kokinakis / Nick Kyrgios. The 24-year-old Purcell also played for the Australian Open in a double with Luke Savile in the 2020 season.

The second semi-final match brought more emotions. Last year’s Wimbledon champions, Mate Pavic and Nikola Mektic, defeated after four hours and 20 minutes of stunning fighting, 6:7 (2), 7:6 (0), 4:6, 6:2, 7:6 (4) duo Colombian Juan Sebastian Cabal / Robert Farah, in the tenth game of the deciding set, defended the match ball.
