The Spaniard became the sixth Spanish man to reach the semi-finals at Wimbledon after dropping just one set en route to the last four. Bautista Agut advanced to his first Grand Slam semi-final with consecutive victories against Karen Khachanov, Benoit Paire and Guido Pella. After delaying his bachelor party in Ibiza, the 31-year-old fell to eventual champion Novak Djokovic in four sets. Bautista Agut rises nine spots to equal his career-high ATP Ranking of No. 13, first achieved on 17 October 2016.

Medvedev reached the third round at Wimbledon for the second straight year to improve to 30-14 at tour-level this season. The Russian claimed wins against Paolo Lorenzi and Alexei Popyrin, before a five-set loss to David Goffin. As a result of his run to the third round, Medvedev jumps three positions to enter the Top 10 of the ATP Rankings for the first time at No. 10.
