22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal reached his 8th Wimbledon quarter-finals and the first since his run to the semi-final in 2019 after he defeated Netherlands' Botic van de Zandschulp in straight sets (6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (6)) in the men's singles 4th-round match on Monday, July 4.

 

 

Rafael Nadal's dreams of winning a Calendar Slam remain alive as he faces 11th seed Taylor Fritz of the USA in the quarter-finals later this week. Nadal won the Australian Open in January and dethroned Novak Djokovic at the French Open, taking his Grand Slam tally to 22, two ahead of the Serb and Roger Federer who are tied on 20 each.

Van de Zandschulp put up a stiff fight in the 3rd set as he forced a tie-breaker. However, Nadal raced to a 6-3 lead and had 3 match points, all of them saved by the Dutchman.

That was the end of the Dutchman's resistance, though, as Nadal converted his fourth match point for a 6-4, 6-2, 7-6 (6) win on Centre Court.
