Carlos ALcaraz to play Daniil Medvedev at Wimbledon 2023

Highest ranked Carlos Alcaraz will take on third-seeded Daniil Medvedev in the Wimbledon semifinals

(Tennis news) Alcaraz won in straight sets against Jeremy Chardy and Alexandre Muller to win the grass-court Major. He defeated the 25th seed Nicolas Jarry 6-3, 6-7(8), 6-3, 7-5 before defeating Matteo Berrettini 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 to go to the quarterfinals.

The sixth-seeded Holger Rune was the opponent here, and the Spaniard battled him, taking the opening set in a tie-break. He won the following two sets 6-4, 6-4 to secure his spot in the Wimbledon semifinals for the first time ever.

Similar to Alcaraz, Medvedev won his first two matches at the grass-court Major in straight sets. He then defeated Marton Fucsovics in four sets to advance to a matchup with Jiri Lehecka in the fourth round.

Before the Czech had to quit due to injury, the Russian had won the first set 6-4 and the second 6-2. Thus, Medvedev advanced to his first quarter final at Wimbledon, where he faced off against Christopher Eubanks.

The American recovered to win the next two sets, 6-1 and 6-4, and seize the match’s lead after the 27-year-old won the opening set 6-4. To force a decider, Medvedev took the fourth set in a tie-break. He won the last set decisively (6-1) to advance to his first Wimbledon quarterfinal.


Both players are presently deadlocked 1-1 in their head-to-head matchup. In their most recent encounter, Alcaraz prevailed 6-3, 6-2 in the BNP Paribas Open championship match in Indian Wells.


Both Alcaraz and Medvedev have played some dazzling tennis in 2023, so their semifinal is sure to be exciting.

Alcaraz has had a fantastic season on grass so far and is unbeaten on grass in 2023. Before competing at Wimbledon, the Spaniard won the Cinch Championships in London.

In his quarterfinal matchup with Rune, Alcaraz won 25 out of 35 points on his second serve and 45 out of 57 points on his first serve. Additionally, the 20-year-old made just 13 unforced errors while hitting 35 successful shots. 

The Spaniard will aim to be aggressive right away and mix his strong groundstrokes with impeccable drop shots, which are now among the finest in the game. Prior to Wimbledon, Medvedev did not have the finest grass-court season, winning just two out of four games. In his quarterfinal match against Christopher Eubanks, the Russian served 28 aces; he will aim to achieve the same against Alcaraz. There were only 13 unforced errors in the 52 wins he served.

It will be helpful for Medvedev to use his counterpunching skills to counteract Alcaraz’s ferocity. With his quick switches from defence to offence, he can always make things difficult for his opponent.

The match could end up being very close because Alcaraz and Medvedev both appear to be in fantastic form right now. The Spaniard has performed a little better on grass this year, and it may help him get to the Wimbledon final on Sunday.
