World No.1 Jannik Sinner has crashed out of Wimbledon with a quarter-final defeat to Russian fifth-seed Daniil Medvedev.

Sinner was on a collision course to face fellow young superstar Carlos Alcaraz in the last four, which would’ve been an absolute blockbuster semi-final in SW19.

Sinner and Alcaraz are the new poster boys of professional men’s tennis but it was fellow title hopeful Medvedev won 6-7 (7-9) 6-4 7-6 (7-4) 2-6 6-3 on Tuesday.

It means that the Russian has reached the Wimbledon semi-finals for the second year in a row after his best run in SW19 last year, as he eventually lost to Alcaraz.

Medvedev will face Alcaraz again in this year’s semi-finals, assuming that the current Wimbledon champion battles past Tommy Paul in his quarter-final match.

Alcaraz has won four of his six meetings with Medvedev and it would be their third match together at Wimbledon in total.

The first time they played at the All England Club was in 2021 when Medvedev conjured up a 6-4 6-1 6-2 second-round win over the three-time major winner.
