Wimbledon 2024: Taylor Fritz ousts Alexander Zverev to reach quarterfinals | Pragativadi | Odisha News, Breaking News Odisha, Latest Odisha News – N.F Times

In a stunning Wimbledon 2024 upset, 13th-seeded American Taylor Fritz rallied from a two-set deficit to defeat fourth-seeded German Alexander Zverev with scores of 4-6, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 6-3 in the fourth round.

This victory propels Fritz into the quarterfinals after a gripping five-set match.

The 13th-seeded has matched his career-best showing in Grand Slam tennis. The 26-year-old from California starred in the 35th game, which went into five sets at the All England Club this season. The Grand Slam event has tied the record for the most five-setters at any major tournament in the Open era, which began in 1968.

Fritz’s memorable comeback win is the 11th from a two-set deficit in the 2024 edition of Wimbledon, more than in any other year. The American 13th seed has set a date with Italian Lorenzo Musetti in the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

Fourth-seeded Zverev finished runner-up to Carlos Alcaraz at the French Open last month. The German also lost in the final of the 2020 US Open against Dominic Thiem.

Fritz’s quarterfinal opponent will be No. 25 Lorenzo Musetti, while No. 9 Alex de Minaur plays seven-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic or No. 15 Holger Rune.
