On July 5, at 15-30 Moscow time, Djokovic will play against Sinner in the 1/4 finals of Wimbledon. Will the young Italian be able to stop Novak, who has not lost 25 matches in a row at this TBSH? Bookmakers do not doubt the success of the Serb.
Djokovic is a 35–year-old Serbian tennis player, the 3rd racket of the world. He has won only one trophy so far this season (the Masters in Rome), but this is not surprising, because he missed several major ones, including the Masters in Indian Wells and Miami, the Australian Open. On grass, I decided to limit myself to Wimbledon, where I started with a difficult victory over Kwon Seong-woo: 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. After that, he easily dealt with Kokkinakis and Ketsmanovich, losing only one game on his serve in 6 games, and easily beat Tim Vanreithoven in the 1/8 finals (6-1, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2), who at the beginning of June made a noise in the Hertogenbosch, unexpectedly winning the competition.
Sinner is a 20–year-old Italian tennis player, the 13th racket of the world. This year, he is still without titles, but he plays smoothly, and in many competitions he reached the 1/4 finals. At Wimbledon, he got a difficult set, but he coped: he beat Wawrinka and Mikael Imer in four games, and left Isner no chance on his serve, having sorted out in three sets. In the 1/8 finals, Yannick got Alcaraz, who is predicted to be the first line of the world ranking almost this season. The match turned out to be interesting and equal, but at the same time the Italian did not allow Carlos to make even one break: 6-1, 6-4, 6-7, 6-3.
Personal meeting statistics
The only face-to-face meeting remained for Djokovic: 6-4, 6-2. It was the second round match of the "Masters" in Monte Carlo last season.
- Djokovic is a 6–time Wimbledon winner (2011, 2014, 2015, 2018, 2019, 2021).
- Novak has not lost at Wimbledon for 25 matches in a row.
Forecast from LiveResult.ru
Yes, Novak is a 6–time winner of this TBSH, and he suffered his last defeat here in 2017. It's impressive, but young people are also growing and progressing. Sinner is one of the most promising young players of today, and he is quite capable of playing on equal terms with the Serbian, who is in good shape, but does not look invincible. We are inclined to a battle of four or five games, and boldly bet on "total more".
