Chris Eubanks - Wimbledon 2023

Chris Eubanks ‘a bit emotional’ as he looks ahead to US Open

Chris Eubanks has reflected on his best ever Grand Slam performance, as the American now looks to take his form into the US Open.

Eubanks came into Wimbledon having won his first ATP title in Mallorca, and the 27-year-old continued that form in his first ever main draw appearance at SW19.

The ATP No.43 picked up wins over Stefanos Tsitsipas and Cameron Norrie en route to the quarter-final, where he found himself two sets up over former No.1 Daniil Medvedev.

However, Eubanks couldn’t extend his winning streak to 10 matches, after Medvedev fought back to reach his first Wimbledon semi-final.

Eubanks has reflected on his time at the grass major, “To walk off the court and hear Court 1 cheering for you is special. It is something you dream about growing up.”

He continued, “It is a bit emotional to watch it again. It is special and something I will never forget. I can’t wait to use this momentum I have now to take into the US summer swing leading into the US Open.

“It is a tournament I used to go to growing up with my family, and is a tournament I want to do well at.”

With Eubanks breaking new ground at a major, he is receiving a lot more media attention which he claims to not understand yet.

“I don’t think I understand it just yet,” said Eubanks. “I have done a good job of blocking out the outside noise and focus on each match and each opponent.

“My phone has been going off. I had it on do not disturb for the past few weeks. I wanted all my energy to be here at Wimbledon, but I think things are going to be a bit different when we get back Stateside and I am pretty excited about it.”

One thing that has been clear throughout Eubanks’ run to the Wimbledon quarter-finals is just how popular he is on the tour.

Coco Gauff has often been spotted in the crowd supporting her compatriot, and Eubanks described the tour as a ‘second family’.

“I have a good rapport with a lot of the players on tour. Seeing them being happy for my success is gratifying. They understand what it is like and the sacrifice it takes to have results like this,” explained Eubanks.

“It is a bit like a second family and to see people you are competing against being happy for your success means a lot.”

With his eyes now on his home major, Eubanks looks to take to the American hard courts with his next scheduled tournament in his home of Atlanta, after he withdrew from the grass court event in Newport next week.
