Wimbledon 2024 has been a great season so far and we have already seen some great games in this edition which we have enjoyed witnessing. It is now time for round 4 of the tournament and we are yet to see some more iconic games coming up. There are still a lot of great players who are still alive in the Grand Slam event and are no doubt also favorites to win the tournament.

The match between Carlos Alcaraz and Ugo Humbert was a match to watch out for as the Frenchman had played some great tennis before reaching the fourth round. There is no doubt that Humbert was a talented player, but he was still up against the defending champion and World number 3 player. This is a game that was already looking like a match for the Spaniard to win at all costs.

However, Alcaraz once again delivered under pressure by winning the 4th set 7-5 and make sure he made it into the quarter finals once again for the second time.
