溫布爾登:西蒙娜-哈勒普、拉斐爾-納達爾和尼克-基爾吉奧斯在第10天採取行動

拉斐爾-納達爾將在周三對陣美國11號種子泰勒-弗里茨時,面臨他迄今為止溫布爾登運動中最艱難的挑戰。

一個潛在的半決賽在等待着澳大利亞人尼克-基爾喬斯,他在第10天面對智利人克里斯蒂安-加林。

16號種子羅馬尼亞選手哈勒普將於北京時間13:30在中心球場對陣20號種子阿尼西莫娃,他們的比賽之後是納達爾對陣弗里茨。

哈勒普說:"直到現在我才想到[不丟一盤],但一天比一天好,"哈勒普說,她在本屆錦標賽中還沒有被帶入決勝局。

"我只是期待着打好下一場比賽,並付出我的努力"。

澳大利亞的Ajla Tomljanovic在當天的另一場女子四分之一決賽中對陣哈薩克斯坦的17號種子Elena Rybakina。

這將是納達爾三年來首次出現在全英俱樂部的四分之一決賽中,因為科維德意味着2020年的比賽被取消,而去年36歲的他因傷錯過了比賽。

但這位22次大滿貫冠軍將面對的是一位今年已經比他強的球員。

弗里茨正在參加他的第一個大滿貫四分之一決賽,他以6-3 6-1 6-4戰勝了澳大利亞的傑森-庫布勒,進入了這個階段。

這位24歲的選手在今年早些時候的印第安維爾斯決賽中擊敗納達爾,獲得了他的第一個1000大師賽冠軍,他將充滿信心。

納達爾說:"從個人角度來說,對我來說,三年後能夠進入四分之一決賽,這對我來說是很了不起的,所以非常非常高興,"。

"每場比賽都是不同的。他打得很好,有一個非常好的一年,包括第一個1000大師賽冠軍,順便對我說。

"但我們將在溫布爾登的四分之一決賽中,所以我將期待什麼。"

2014年,Kyrgios在他的溫布爾登首秀中擊敗了納達爾,當時他進入了四分之一決賽,如果兩位選手都能在最後的八強戰中勝出,他將在半決賽中面對西班牙人。

澳大利亞人正在享受他在SW19的最佳表現,因為八年前的首次出場,並相信他有一個 "機會",對陣世界排名第43位的加林,他在上一輪讓澳大利亞的前景Alex de Minaur吃驚。

"我期待着與亞歷克斯比賽,"基爾吉奧斯說。"然後當我走下球場,我被告知是加林。這很令人驚訝。我把它看成是一個機會,但在那場比賽之前我需要做很多事情來做好準備。"

加林在戰勝德米納爾的那場比賽中挽救了兩個賽點,他說他認為Kyrgios的世界排名第40位並不能說明這位27歲的年輕人的能力。

"尼克是非常好的球員。對我來說,也許是巡迴賽中最好的發球,"他說。"我認為尼克必須成為種子選手,因為對我來說,他是巡迴賽和草地上最好的球員之一,顯然。"

這場比賽發生的前一天,有消息稱Kyrgios將於下個月在澳大利亞出庭,涉及一項普通攻擊的指控。

基爾喬斯已經鑄就了他的運動中最大的浪費人才之一的聲譽,但澳大利亞雙打名將托德-伍德布里奇說,他的同胞比以往任何時候都更多地應用自己,為這個大滿貫做準備。

"他告訴BBC,"尼克為這裡的比賽做了最好的準備。

"他花時間在家裡。他和萊頓-休伊特一起去了悉尼的獵人山網球俱樂部,進入冬季後,球場不是那麼好,但他付出了非常大的努力,他在整個比賽中的新聞發布會也很好。"

在溫布爾登之前,Kyrgios在草地賽事中打進了兩場半決賽,並在1月份的澳大利亞公開賽上與同胞Thanasi Kokkinakis合作獲得了男雙冠軍,這是他第一次品嘗到大滿貫的成功。

"曾經有一段時間,我不得不在凌晨4點被迫離開酒吧,與納達爾[在]第二輪比賽,"Kyrgios在星期二的指控前說。"我已經走了很長的路,這是肯定的。

"但我認為只是日常的習慣和我身邊的人。我有一個令人難以置信的支持團隊。我的理療師是我最好的朋友之一。我最好的朋友是我的經紀人。我有世界上最好的女朋友。我身邊有這麼多人,他們都在支持我。我覺得我可以反思所有那些黑暗的時刻,我把他們都推開了。

"現在坐在溫布爾登的四分之一決賽中,感覺很好,感覺很鎮定,感覺很成熟,有他們在我身邊,我非常幸運。我覺得我在自己的皮膚里很舒服。"


Rafael Nadal will face the toughest challenge of his Wimbledon campaign so far when he takes on American 11th seed Taylor Fritz on Wednesday.

A potential semi-final awaits against Australian Nick Kyrgios, who faces Chile's Cristian Garin on day 10.

Romania's Halep, the 16th seed, will face 20th seed Anisimova on Centre Court from 13:30 BST, with their match followed by Nadal versus Fritz.

"I did not think about [not dropping a set] until now but day by day it is better and better," said Halep, who is yet to be taken to a decider this championships.

"I am just looking forward to playing the next one and giving my best."

Australia's Ajla Tomljanovic takes on Kazakhstan's 17th seed Elena Rybakina in the day's other women's quarter-final.

This will be Nadal's first appearance in the quarter-finals at the All England Club in three years after Covid meant the 2020 edition was cancelled and injury saw the 36-year-old miss out last year.

But the 22-time Grand Slam champion will come up against a player who has already got the better of him this year.

Fritz is playing in his first major quarter-final, having reached this stage with a 6-3 6-1 6-4 win over Jason Kubler of Australia.

And the 24-year-old will be full of confidence after beating Nadal to claim his first Masters 1000 title in the Indian Wells final earlier this year.

"In a personal way, for me to be able to be in quarter-finals after three years it's amazing for me so very, very happy," said Nadal.

"Every match is different. He is playing well and having a very good year including a first Masters 1000 title, against me by the way.

"But we will be in the quarter-final of Wimbledon, so what will I expect."

Kyrgios beat Nadal on his Wimbledon debut in 2014, when he reached the quarter-finals, and will face the Spaniard in the semi-final if both players come through their last-eight ties.

The Australian is enjoying his best run at SW19 since that inaugural outing eight years ago and believes he has an "opportunity" to progress against world number 43 Garin, who surprised Australian prospect Alex de Minaur in the previous round.

"I was expecting to play Alex," said Kyrgios. "Then when I walked off the court and I got told it was Garin. It was surprising. I look at it as an opportunity but I need to do so many things before that match to get ready."

Garin saved two match points during that victory over De Minaur and says he thinks Kyrgios' world ranking of 40th does not do the 27-year-old's ability justice.

"Nick is very good player. For me, maybe the best serve on tour," he said. "I think Nick has to be seeded because he for me is one of the best players on the tour and on grass, obviously."

The match comes a day after it emerged Kyrgios is set to appear in court in Australia next month in relation to a claim of common assault. • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone

Kyrgios has forged a reputation as one of his sport's biggest wasted talents, but Australian doubles great Todd Woodbridge says his compatriot has applied himself more than ever to be ready for this Grand Slam.

"Nick has prepared the best ever for a tournament here," he told the BBC.

"He spent time at home. He went to the Hunter's Hill tennis Club in Sydney with Lleyton Hewitt coming into winter and the courts were not that good but he put in a really big effort and his press conferences throughout the tournament were good."

Kyrgios reached two semi-finals at grass events in the lead-up to Wimbledon and enjoyed his first taste of Grand Slam success when he partnered countryman Thanasi Kokkinakis to the men's doubles title at the Australian Open in January.

"There was a time where I was having to be forced out of a pub at 4am to play Nadal [in the] second round," said Kyrgios, speaking before Tuesday's allegations. "I've come a long way, that's for sure.

"But I think just daily habits and the people around me. I've got an incredible support crew. My physio is one of my best friends. My best friend is my agent. I've got the best girlfriend in the world. I've just got so many people around me, they just support me. I feel like I can reflect on all those dark times when I pushed them all away.

"Now to sit here quarter-finals of Wimbledon, feeling good, feeling composed, feeling mature, having that around me, I'm extremely blessed. I feel like I'm just comfortable in my own skin."
