Today is a great day for Asian tennis. Yen-Hsun Lu from Chinese Taipei is the first ever player from that country to make the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam event. Lu had an amazing win by knocking out Andy Roddick 4-6 7-6 7-6 6-7 9-7.
Lu is currently ranked 82nd in the world, but today he played some controlled tennis and didnt lose his cool under a lot of pressure. He also became the first Asian man to make the last eight at the Wimbledon since Japan’s Shuzo Masuoka back in 1995!
Lu will now face Novak Djokovic on Wednesday.
