With this victory, Medvedev improved his head-to-head record to 7-5 against Sinner and secured a spot in the Wimbledon semifinals, where he will face the defending champion, Carlos Alcaraz. Alcaraz, seeded No. 3, advanced by overcoming No. 12 Tommy Paul in four sets: 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-2.

Reflecting on the match, Medvedev acknowledged the challenge of beating Sinner. “I knew it had to be a tough match to beat Jannik,” he said. “He’s not someone you can easily defeat anymore. I noticed he wasn’t feeling well at one point, but he started playing better, and I’m glad I maintained a high level throughout.”

Sinner, clearly not at his best, took a medical timeout during the third set to have his pulse checked and receive treatment. Although he continued playing, Sinner was visibly struggling at times. Medvedev capitalized on this, hitting 55 winners and delivering Sinner his fourth loss of the season.

Medvedev’s performance in the first set tiebreak was marred by double faults, but he quickly regained his composure. He broke Sinner in the third game of the second set and maintained consistency, committing only six unforced errors compared to Sinner’s 14. An ace sealed the second set for Medvedev.

Despite Sinner’s medical issues in the third set, he fought valiantly but couldn’t regain the upper hand. Medvedev dominated the tie-break to take the lead. Sinner then showcased his serving prowess in the fourth set, winning 85% of points on his first serve and converting both break points to push the match to a deciding fifth set.

In the final set, Medvedev‘s aggressive play and resilience in baseline rallies secured his first Top 5 win of the season. “It’s very tough,” Medvedev admitted. “I sensed he wasn’t moving well, and you want to extend points to wear him down, but he eventually goes all out. He had set points in the third set. It’s tricky, but I’m happy with the outcome.”

Medvedev’s hard-fought victory propels him into a highly anticipated semifinal against Alcaraz, promising another thrilling encounter at Wimbledon.
