Wheelchair tennis player Joachim Gérard (ITF-7) is in good shape at the ATP tournament in Queens, British. Our compatriot has been playing at a high level throughout the tournament and Gérard also had no child in the quarterfinals of 17-year-old top talent Andrew Penney, the number three in the junior ranking. Our compatriot made it smoothly in two sets (6-2 and 6-0). To secure a place in the final, our compatriot still has to get past the British first seed Alfie Hewett (ITF-2).

Gérard, who won a bronze medal at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Bra), hopes in Queens after a disappointing Roland Garros (Gérard was eliminated in the first round, ed.) up his form for Wimbledon. The 33-year-old from Brussels wants to extend his title there.
