Max Purcell d Gael Monfils (1) 6-4 5-7 6-4
Purcell has done it again! Beating Kevin Anderson in the Quallies now beating 1st seed! Purcell looked on fire the the first set and most of the second set, but got nervous serving out the match at 5-4 in the 2nd set, then got broken twice. Monfils was up 3-0 in the 3rd set, but Purcell stayed strong and broke back twice to win the last 5 out of 6 games to clinch the match.
Alexander Bublik (8) d Egor Gerasimov 6-2 6-2
Bublik continuing his good grass season so far, with his unique play style that outclasses his opponents. It was Bublik with 4/14 break points, and keeping his serve to play a near-flawless match.
Andreas Seppi d Emil Ruusivuori 6-2 6-3
Seppi just makes the most of his break point opportunities, with 3/5. Anything over 50% is considered excellent, and Seppi was facing a fierce opponent from Finland.
Lorenzo Sonego (3) d John Millman 6-4 6-2
Sonego was just more aggressive than Millman on the day. He was favourite, and showed why with the power to direct the point around, and Millman not having enough of a response.
Ilya Ivashka d Alexei Popyrin 6-7 7-5 6-3
Popyrin flailed a one set lead which he is known for doing. Against Ivashka, who loves a comeback, the tide was always going to turn after the first set. Ivashka breaking 3/7 times compared to Popyrin's 1/10. Horrible stats from the Aussie!
Vasek Pospisil d Alejandro Davidovich (6) Fokina 7-6(1) WALKOVER Fokina did not much signs of fatigure/injury, but was likely more smart about Wimbledon next week. It would have been hard to come back from a big server in Pospisil, and Fokina played his cards right, in hoping he prepares well for next week.
Soon-Woo Kwon d Marton Fucsovics 7-6 6-7 6-3
It was simply another game of catchup for Fucsovics, but his mentality let him down in the end. It is disappointing to see highs and lows from the Hungarian, and much like his team in the EUROS, they got eliminated from the tournament.
Alex De Minaur (2) d Liam Broady 6-3 6-4
Broady looked good early on, with a fierce left-handed forehand. De Minaur always finds a way, and it is ridiculous to watch him every single time! It is amazing how he pulls some of his shots off. He reads the play excellently, and is such a classy player. It is difficult to see him win the title, but it is great seeing him fight for it.
