Italy’s Jannick Sinner was eliminated from the Wimbledon tournament, one of the four most important and prestigious tournaments in world tennis, losing in the quarterfinals to Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in a match that lasted four hours and ended in the fifth set (6-7, 6-4, 7-6, 2-6, 6-3; best-of-five sets are played).

The match between Sinner and Medvedev was very close, and at certain points both tennis players seemed close to victory before things changed. After the first two sets – the first won by Sinner and the second by Medvedev – the Russian tennis player seemed to be in control of the match in the third, after Sinner requested medical attention, saying he was dizzy and even returned to the locker room for about ten minutes. But in the end, Medvedev won the third set.

However, the fourth set was dominated by Sinner, who easily won it 6-2. But in the fifth set Medvedev played better, especially in the deciding points, and eventually managed to win.

As the sports media mentions, “Sinner had never won Wimbledon, but he was coming to the tournament with high expectations, as he had recently become world number one and in the weeks leading up to the tournament had won his first title on grass, the same surface on which Wimbledon is played.”

Daniil Medvedev has lost his last five matches to Sinner, although previously he had always managed to put him in a tight spot and beat him consistently. With the win over Sinner, Medvedev advanced to the semifinals where he will play the winner of the match between Carlos Alcaraz and Tommy Paul.
