Hurkacz was only two years old when Federer made his Wimbledon debut in 1999. He was also six years old when the Swiss won the first victory of his record 20 Grand Slam titles in the 2003 Championship.
He hopes not only to defeat Federer, but also to maintain his amazing and unexpected victory in the tournament where he knocked out world No. 2 Daniil Medvedev just a day ago.
