Treat Huey is into the semi-finals of the men’s doubles at Wimbledon, the first Filipino to reach the last four at a grand slam.
Huey and his partner, Max Mirnyi of Belarus, wasted little time in downing Jonathan Marray of Great Britain and Adil Shamasdin of Canada, 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-3 on Wednesday.
The victory sees the 12th seeds set up a last-four showdown against the number one seeds, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut of France.
It is the first time that Huey has progressed to the semi-finals of a grand slam in the men’s doubles, having previously come up short in the quarter-finals at the Australian Open (twice) and at the US Open. However, he has featured in the semi-finals of the mixed doubles competition, a feat he achieved with Andreja Klepac at this year’s Australian Open.
