After a 6-1, 6-4, 6-7 (8), 6-3 victory over world No. 7 Carlos Alcaraz, world No. 13 Jannik Sinner will now face world No. 3 Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon. Djokovic is a giant -900 favorite to emerge as the winner in this match-up at the All England Club, and he’s also an overwhelming favorite to go on to win this tournament. With that in mind, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody if Djokovic takes care of business against Sinner.
However, the Italian just might be able to put up something of a fight in this spot, and that's what we're focusing on.
All things considered, Sinner’s win over Alcaraz was truly a monumental achievement for the 20-year-old. While everybody on the planet is quick to praise the Spaniard for being one of the game’s best young players, Sinner is a little slept on in that regard. The Italian is just barely removed from being a teenager himself, yet he has been a Top 10 player before and just might be one again by the end of the year. Sinner is also on one heck of a run in London right now, as he has already earned wins over Stan Wawrinka, John Isner and Alcaraz. The win over Isner was particularly impressive, as the American had just eliminated Andy Murray in his previous match. Sinner took care of Isner in straight sets, impressive considering how well the grass suits big servers.
