CONCLUSION 1-Tennis-Wimbledon seventh day | Sports games
Italy’s 10th seed Jannik Sinner produced one of the best performances of his young career to oust Spanish teenage sensation Carlos Alcaraz in four sets at Wimbledon on Sunday and advance to his first grass-court major quarter-final. The 20-year-old took a two-set lead before Alcaraz moved ahead in the third-set tiebreaker in front of a boisterous Center Court crowd. Sinner, however, responded in style and beat his fifth-seeded opponent early in the fourth, winning 6-1 6-4 6-7(8) 6-3.
He will next face defending champion Novak Djokovic, who overcame a mid-match swing to knock out Dutch wildcard Tim van Rijthoven 6-2 4-6 6-1 6-2 and stay the course for a seventh Wimbledon crown and a 21st Grand Slam title. There was joy for the home fans as ninth seed Cameron Norrie reached the last eight of a major for the first time after beating American Tommy Paul 6-4 7-5 6-4, while David Goffin defeated Frances Tiafoe 7-6(3) 5-7 5-7 6-4 7-5.
Tunisia’s third seed Ons Jabeur was among the big winners in the women’s draw, claiming a 7-6(9) 6-4 victory over Belgium’s Elise Mertens to set up a round of 16 clash with Marie Bouzkova, who beat Caroline Garcia. It was the end of the road for former Roland Garros winner Jelena Ostapenko after losing a one-set advantage to lose 5-7 7-5 7-5 to Germany’s Tatjana Maria, 34, the oldest player to draw it.
