Sam Querrey d Dominic Stephan Stricker 6-7(4) 7-6(4) 6-3
The 18yo's fairytale run came to an end by the 33yo American. Querrey served 32 aces in his eventual victory over the Swiss teen, who still managed to serve 17 aces against the 6ft 6 American.
Marin Cilic d Denis Shapovalov (1) 7-5 7-6(3)
Shapovalov's one-handed backhand can be inconsistent, and today it was. It was not good enough to defend against the Croatian's aggressive playstyle. Cilic directed and controlled the rallies well, with little errors, and more aces in the encounter.
Jurij Rodionov d Alex De-Minaur 3-6 6-3 7-6(4)
The world no 296 does it again! This was against all belief, but the Aussie just did not look comfortable on grass. It almost looked like his strings needed redoing, or was at a wrong tension, but it came down to the wire. A fall midway through the third set was concerning for the Austrian, but he pulled through, surprising many, making his first ATP Semi-Final. Rodionov also heading the aces 12-4.
Felix Auger-Aliassime (3) d Ugo Humbert (6) 7-6(5) 7-6(8)
It was expected to be a very close match. Both players had chances to close sets, but it sees a theme that the bigger serve can finish it, much like many in this write up. Felix serving 17 aces to Humbert's 4.
