Daniil Medvedev in action on Sunday at Wimbledon.

Daniil Medvedev returned to the quarter-finals at Wimbledon on Sunday when Grigor Dimitrov was forced to retire while trailing 3-5 in the first set.
The Bulgarian slipped at 2-3 in the first set before he received a medical timeout for a knee issue. He continued on for three more games before eventually stopping after 35 minutes on No. 1 Court.

Medvedev reached the semi-finals at the grass-court major in 2023 and has looked impressive in the crucial moments during this year’s event. The fifth seed defeated Alexandre Muller and Jan-Lennard Struff in four sets earlier this week and will next face World No. 1 Jannik Sinner in his biggest challenge so far.

Medvedev leads the Italian 6-5 in the pair’s Lexus ATP Head2Head series, but has lost their past five meetings. The 28-year-old is chasing his second major title and first at any tour-level event since Rome last year.

Dimitrov was competing in the fourth round at Wimbledon for the fourth time. His best result came in 2014 when he reached the semi-finals.
