Unexpected Triumphs: Surprise Winners Secure Spots in Wimbledon Semi-Finals

Two surprise winners have advanced to the Wimbledon semi-finals. Elina Svitolina, who entered Wimbledon as a wild card, beat Iga Swiatek, the tournament’s pre-favorite. Unranked Marketa Vondrousova defeated World No. 4 Jessica Pegula by winning five straight games in the final set. These upsets have defied expectations and produced unanticipated winners, which is not uncommon in Wimbledon’s history.

Victoria Azarenka was booed off the court by the crowd after losing to Elina Svitolina in a three-set match. Azarenka said it “wasn’t fair” for the crowd to react poorly after she respected Svitolina’s decision to not shake hands post-game. In another instance, Russian world No.3 Daniil Medvedev was left “surprised” by the Wimbledon crowd’s reaction to him during his first-round match.
