WIMBLEDON 2021: Roger Federer Creates Open Era Record To Set Up Cameron Norrie Showdown

by Sola Legend

Federer proceeded with his bid for a record-extending ninth Wimbledon title with a thorough straight-sets victory; the 39-year-old would take on Britain’s Cam Norrie next in the third round; Medvedev, Zverev, and Berrettini also advanced at the All England Club.

Eight-time winner Roger Federer strengthened a spot in the third round of Wimbledon for a record 18th time with a straight-sets win over two-time semi-finalist Richard Gasquet.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion recouped from a hesitant start to complete a resounding 7-6 (7-1) 6-1 6-4 victory on a sun-bathed Centre Court, to arrange a showdown against British No 2 Cam Norrie for a place in the fourth round.

Federer, featuring in just his tenth match in 19 months, endured a major panic in his opener against Adrian Mannarino, but he produced some vintage tennis in the latter stages against Gasquet to record a remarkable 103rd victory at the All England Club.

“I know Richard really well, we’ve played so many times against each other, he’s got such a wonderful backhand,” Federer reflected post-match.

“After he ripped that down the line, I thought maybe I can do something similar I’d be happy with, and after that, I got on a roll so I’m happy he inspired me on that shot.

“It was a wonderful match for me, I was really happy with my performance today.”

Federer was uncharacteristically squandering in the opening stages, recording 12 unforced errors in the opening seven games.

However, after persisting in a one-sided tie-breaker, he started to dictate proceedings and dominated the 35-year-old Frenchman with his zeal and punishing groundstrokes.
