Hubert Hurkacz became just the fourth Polish man to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals on Tuesday with a five-set win over Russian second seed Daniil Medvedev.

World number 18 Hurkacz triumphed 2-6, 7-6 (7/2), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in a match held over from Monday due to rain and will now face Roger Federer for a place in the semi-finals.

The 24-year-old follows in the footsteps of fellow Poles who made the last-eight – Wojtek Fibak (1980) and Jerzy Janowicz and Lukasz Kubot (2013).

The match was the only one in the singles draw to become a casualty of the weather Monday after starting on Court Two.

They resumed under the roof on Centre Court with Medvedev 2-1 up and on serve at 3-4 in the fourth.
