In front of a Centre Court crowd restored once again to capacity, Hurkacz sensationally bulldozed the eight-time champion Federer 6-3, 7-6(4), 6-0 in one hour and 48 minutes. Federer had never lost a set to love at Wimbledon before, and this one might have been his last.
His Fans reaction were very touching as the crowd puller Roger Federer walked away from the Wimbledon center court waving to his fans one last time before they see him again at the grass court.
Here are some of the reactions

“It’s super special for me, playing on this special court against Roger,” Hurkacz told the crowd. Asked if he could have imagined defeating Federer in this place and in such style, the Pole replied modestly: “Probably not.
The special things he has done here throughout his career, it’s a dream come true. Playing here in front of you guys, thank you so much for coming here and cheering. I’m super proud and super happy to be here. I can’t wait for the next one.”
