Hubert Hurkacz Preview – Polish player defies the odds again

Where this run from Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz has come from is a little bit of a mystery. But it’s been superbly entertaining.

Hurkacz raced through the first three rounds without dropping a set, before heading into his Round of 16 match against second seed Daniil Medvedev.

Medvedev had pulled out a 2-1 lead in the match. Few would have seen the fightback from Hurkacz coming.

The Polish player won the final two sets 6-3 6-3 to defy some big pre-match odds.

Then in the quarter-finals, the bookmakers didn’t give him much of a chance against Roger Federer.

But with some brilliant tactics of slowing the game right down, Hurkacz smashed Federer in straight sets.

That has so far, unquestionably, been the major upset result of Wimbledon 2021.

Can Hurkacz, currently ranked 18th in the world outplay these odds of the 7/4 underdog in Wimbledon tennis betting* (odds taken 0116 GMT on July 8th 2021).
