The match lasted one hour and 42 minutes.

Speaking in a post-match interview, Novak said:

That’s always the aim, to reach the final stages at Grand Slams. I always try to set my form so I can play my best at this tournament. Wimbledon historically for many players and me included has been a special tournament that has motivated me throughout my life. I try not to take things for granted. We keep on going. I try to really focus on what needs to be done. I had never played Ugo but saw him play and he’s won against a couple of great players. I was able to study his game, but he probably wasn’t at his best. I’m pleased to execute the job in three sets.

The defending champion will now take on no.21 seed David Goffin in the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
