Hurkacz defeated the world’s first tennis player in 64 minutes



Berrettini defended the title in Queens

Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz eliminated world number one Daniil Medvedev 6-1 in the final of the 500 Series Halle. Matteo Berrettini is also in great shape, defending the title in Queens, as he was 7: 5 and 6: 4 better than Filip Krajinović.

Hurkacz, a semi-finalist at last year’s Wimbledon, completely outplayed Medvedev, who lost the final on grass for the second Sunday in a row. The duel lasted only 64 minutes. The Russian did not win a single opportunity to take the serve, on the other hand, the Pole took advantage of three of the eight.

For Hurkacza this is the fifth tournament laurel, the first this year and the first on the grass. The 25-year-old won all five matches in the finals.

Berrettini he was missing for a long time due to injury, but he does not know it when he returns to the field. He celebrated last week in Stuttgart, now in London and improved the yield on the grass to 9: 0. Last year’s Wimbledon finalist has lost just one of his last 21 setbacks on that basis.

The Wimbledon tournament will start on June 27. The draw will be on Friday morning.
