Jo-Wilfried Tsonga made a superb comeback to beat Roger Federer and end the third seed’s hopes of a seventh Wimbledon title for another year.
The Swiss had never lost from two sets ahead at a Grand Slam, but went down 3-6 6-7 (3-7) 6-4 6-4 6-4 in the biggest upset of the tournament.
Federer took a second-set tie-break in style, but Tsonga took the next two sets with a break in each.
The 12th seed broke in the first game of the final set before serving out.
“I was just perfect today. I served just unbelievably,” said Tsonga.
“But in the match before I felt really confident on this shot. I hope it will continue.
“I’m the kind of player who likes these big moments. So I hope I will have some more.
“Can I win Wimbledon? Why not?” (BBC)
