Carlos Alcaraz vs Daniil Medvedev

Carlos Alcaraz got into this match as a huge favorite despite the fact that Daniil Medvedev had a good tournament and is actually the only other player on the tour with 5 titles this season.

Alcaraz took the control of the match from the first hit and dominated the match winning all three sets by 6-3. The Spaniard made an early break in the opening two sets and Medvedev did not manage to be even close to winning any of those. Things started in a similar way in the third set as well, but this time Medvedev managed to break back. However, Alcaraz picked up the pace and close that one for a comfortable win in only 1 hour and 50 minutes of action.

Novak Djokovic vs Jannik Sinner

Djokovic is one match away from tying Roger Federer’s record of eight Wimbledon titles. The Serbian won the previous two Grand Slam tournaments this season and is lone at the top of the men’s tennis with a total of 23 Grand Slam titles. The world No. 2 won the last four Wimbledon championships, and now will play for another titles after defeating Jannik Sinner in the semifinal by 6-3, 6-4, 7-6.

Djokovic took an early 3-0 lead in the opening set and easily won that one. He didn’t wait long to break in the second set as he did that in the third game. The Serbian closed that one by 6-4 and Sinner had nothing to lose in the rest of the way.

The eighth seed who played in his first semifinal ever had two set points at 5-4 up in the third set but could not convert any of those even though he had chance. The third set went to the tie break and the Italian was the one to make a mini-break first but he could not stand the pressure and Djokovic defeated Sinner for the second time in a row at Wimbledon.

Aryna Sabalenka vs Ons Jabeur

Ons Jabeur is back in the Wimbledon final after a comeback victory over world No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka. We didn’t see any breaks of serve in the opening set which went in Sabalenka’s favor after 59 minutes. It seemed like the Belarus player will move on to the finals when Sabalenka made a break in the middle of the second set and then served well for a 4-2 lead.

Jabeur proved her character once again won four straight games to make things even winning the second set 6-4.  The third set started with both players winning their service game until Jabeur used her third break point in the sixth game, taking a 4-2 lead. Sabalenka kept fighting but Jabeur used her sixth match point to get the job done and advance to the second consecutive Wimbledon final.

Last year, Jabeur lost to Elena Rybakina in the final after being one set up. The world No. 6 is still chasing her first Grand Slam title.

Elena Svitolina vs Marketa Vondrousova

Marketa Vondrousova made it to her second Grand Slam final and first at Wimbledon after a 6-3, 6-3 win over Elena Svitolina in the semifinals. The question of the winner was up in the air only in the first20 minutes of the match whenn the scored was 3 all in the first set. The world No. 42 Vondrousova took off from that point on, winning seven straight games, that put her 6-3, 4-0 up. Svitolina, who defeated world No. 1 Iga Swiatek in the quarterfinal, got herself together and won three straight games but when she served to tie the score at 4 all in the second set, Vondrousova broke back and never looked back.

Vondrusova is going to her second Grand Slam Final after the 2019 Roland Garros. Svitolina ends an amazing run, one of the best ever by a player that received a wildcard.
