Wimbledon semi-finalists Wimbledon, ranked 12th to 65th in Kyrgyz, will aim for their first grass court trophy when they play Daniel Medvedev on Sunday.

World number one Oscar Otte broke his dream of becoming a champion on the field by winning 7-6 (7/3), 6-3.

Kyrgyz was in good spirits after he landed in Hurcach, which served many of his rivals.

“He’s a hell of a player,” said the Australian.

“The service is incredible. I really don’t feel like I’ve read anything about it.

“I have been playing well in the last two sets, but in the second set I played a shocking game against each other. That’s it, I’m happy with the way I presented this week.

Kyrgyz will play in Mallorca next week in the final grass court before Wimbledon, which starts on June 26.

He added: “I can use it as a fall week, so I don’t worry too much about the outcome – but now that I say that, when I get there I obviously want to continue my form.”

Kyrgyz is ready for Wimbledon, although he did not score for two weeks. Russia and Belarus have been embroiled in a standoff over a political dispute between the ATP and the English club.

“I want to try and pick as many points as possible (before Wimbledon),” Kirgius said.

“I still want to do well at Wimbledon, but if you don’t have a grade point average, you don’t feel that much pressure.”

Medvedev needed 65 minutes to win the opening set, assisting the opponent when he fell twice on the set.

He scored his first goal of the game 96 minutes later and finished eighth.

“It was hot (32 degrees Celsius / 89.6 Fahrenheit) in difficult conditions,” Medvedev said.

“Reaching the finish is not everything. I want to be my champion by showing my best tennis.”

He added: “I am happy to be able to improve my position on the grass this year. I like to play on grass. ”
