Eight-time champion Roger Federer was knocked out of Wimbledon in the quarter-finals after being stunned by Hubert Hurkacz.

The Pole won 6-3 7-6 (7-4) 6-0 to reach his first Grand Slam semi-final.

It is the first time 20-time major champion Federer has lost a set to love at the All England Club.

Hurkacz, the 14th seed, will play Matteo Berrettini or Felix Auger-Aliassime for a place in Sunday’s final.

“It’s super special for me,” said Hurkacz, only the second Polish man to reach the semi-finals at a Grand Slam.

“Playing here and the special things [Federer] has done here, it’s a dream come true.”

Federer, at 39 years and 337 days, had been bidding to become the oldest man to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals in the Open era.
