Carlos Alcaraz is through to his first Wimbledon 2023 semi-final after defeating Holger Rune 7-6 6-4 6-4 to set up a clash with Daniil Medvedev. The Spaniard edged an entertaining first set on a tiebreak before showing his class in the second and third in what was the first Wimbledon quarter-final between two men under the age of 21 in the Open era.
In the other men’s quarter-final on Wednesday, Christopher Eubanks’ dream run was ended in a five-set thriller by Medvedev, the third seed. The American was two sets to one up but eventually Medvedev prevailed with a 6-4 1-6 4-6 7-6(4) 6-1 victory.
In the women’s section, Ons Jabeur got her revenge on Elena Rybakina to set up a semi-final clash with Aryna Sabalenka. In the reverse of last year’s final, Jabeur fought from a set down to earn a brilliant 6-7 6-4 6-1 win, flashing a stunning array of winners to break Rybakina twice in the third set and end the 24-year-old’s title defence.
After Sabalenka was banned from competing at the Championships last year, the Belarusian defeated the in-form American Madison Keys to return to the semi-finals, winning four games in a row to turn the second set around and win 6-4 6-2.
Already in the semi-finals is defending men’s champion, Novak Djokovic, who sealed his place in his 46th grand slam semi-final as he saw off the challenge of Andrey Rublev. Meeting him will be Jannik Sinner, the 21-year-old Italian, who became the second youngest man to reach this stage of Wimbledon since 2007 when he defeated Roman Safiullin in his quarter-final.
In the women’s draw, Ukrainian wildcard Elina Svitolina knocked out world No 1 Iga Swiatek on Tuesday to extend her stunning run at the Championships with the former Wimbledon semi-finalist set to take on Marketa Vondrousova who produced a shock of her own as she defeated fourth seed Jessica Pegula on court one.
