Russia’s Daniil Medvedev is likely to face Belgian qualifier Ruben Bemelmans in the next round of game.

For the sixth time, Wawrinka lost the game at All England Club on Monday though his attempts were disadvantaged by a left knee injury which needed an ice pack at the changeovers.

It also intended that 33-year-old Wawrinka’s expectations of becoming just the sixth man to complete the career Grand Slam were finished for another year.

In June, Wawrinka lost the game in the first round at Queen’s Club. His grass-court campaign reached to two matches and two defeats.

On the other hand, Russia’s Daniil won the game at Grand Slam level for the first time.

A week ago, he made the semi-finals in Eastbourne where it took Novak Djokovic to stop him, and in addition the quarter-finals at ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Queen’s.

“A year ago I was ranked 250. If someone told me in one year I would win on Centre Court I would tell you you are joking,” Medvedev stated.
