Chris Eubanks will face Russian Danil Medvedev in the quarter –finals of the Wimbledon tennis tournament after a stunning victory over Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas on Monday.

Chris who is making his debut in Wimbledon reaching his first Grand Slam quarter-final is already receiving commendation from fans and four time grand slam winner Kim Clijsters apparently have had advice for the 27 years old on how to handle grass surfaces in tennis.

Eubanks had always felt grass is the stupidest surface to play tennis but incredibly he has continued his hot streak at the All England Club.

‘’I feel like I’m living a dream right now,’’ the American said.

‘’This is absolutely insane. I can’t believe it. The funny thing about tennis is you’re not always going to play your best, you just have to play well at certain times and I think I did that today. I came up when I needed to.

‘’This has been a dream come true, but it was really tough. The grass and I have had a strenuous relationship over the years but right now it’s my best friend.’’ Eubanks said after Stefanos to book a place in the quarter- finals.

En-route to the quarter- finals Eubanks saw –off British Cameron Norrie in the second round before the shocker melted on the Stefanos Tsitsipas on Court Two. He overpowered the echoes of Athens to Atlanta to the surprise of everyone over five sets on court No. 2, winning 3-6 7-6 [4] 3-6 6-4 6-4 in a tick beyond three years.

He faces Russian third seed Daniil Medvedev in the quarter- finals on Wednesday and fans that have really been behind him obviously will be at the Centre Court. Exponentially, looking forward to the quick serve of the 6ft 7 player. The action of admiration has been his winning mentality, speed coupled with hitting ability which he made huge success winning 89 percent of his service and 85 aces so far.

Eubanks shots and backstrokes has so far been described by some pundits as thunderous, sustaining the momentum of what he began in Mallorca last month, where he won at Tour level for the first time. Obviously the same form has seen him in these championships by overcoming Brit Norrie Cameron and World No. 5 Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Meanwhile as he continues his quest for first grand slam title, Russian Medvedev is not pushed over as the contest will be tough. But a winner must emerge because the quarter- final determines who advances to the semi-finals at the All England Club.
