The last Brits standing are ……
Released On 11th Jul 2019
As we enter the final few days of Wimbledon, forget about the prickly Johanna Konta beaten in the quarter finals in the ladies singles, forget about Sir Andy Murray and his “dream team” partner Serena Williams who were beaten yesterday in the mixed doubles. It’s not even Jamie Murray who endured a pretty bleak men’s and mixed doubles in the tournament. Nor is it the British number one Kyle Edmund.
The last Brits standing are the previously unheralded Evan Hoyt and Eden Silva who have battled their way through to the mixed doubles quarter finals. Both have endured career threatening injuries but have forged a great doubles partnership. Hoyt is ranked 503 and Silva is the world number 428!
So, the very best of luck to these two who are in their early twenties. There is also a Brit progressing nicely in the boys singles, Anton Matusevich who has reached the quarter final stage. Apparently the 18-year-old lists economics and the organ music of Bach as hobbies and he’ll be hoping to emulate Jack Draper who made the boys final last year.
