Daniil Medvedev advances to the semifinals of Wimbledon after defeating Jannik Sinner

Top-seeded Jannik Sinner was treated by a trainer and left the court during the third set seemed to rally in the fourth but failed again in the fifth, finally falling to Daniil Medvedev 6-7 (7), 6-4, 7-6 (4), 2-6, 6-3 in the Wimbledon quarterfinals on Tuesday.

Sinner, who was assessed for a heart rate monitor on the sidelines before making his way to the locker room, was taken to the locker room without an instant diagnosis. The 22-year-old from Italy returned after roughly 10 minutes and resumed play, but dropped the first game back at love.

Sinner sought medical care and fell back in his chair at Centre Court after being broken by 2021 US Open winner Medvedev, falling down 2-1 in the third set. He buried his head in his palm while consulting with the trainer before heading into the changing room.

Sinner covered his head with a towel during a subsequent changeover. The match went to a fifth set, which is the longest at any Grand Slam event since 1968, and he did rediscover his customary vigor, especially on his thunderous forehand, but Sinner still couldn’t win.

Medvedev, seeded fifth at Wimbledon, continued to find room to deliver more winners, totaling 13 in the fourth set alone, breaking for a 3-1 lead, holding for 4-1, and advancing to the semifinals.

In 2023, the Russian was defeated in the same round by eventual winner Carlos Alcaraz; on Tuesday, Alcaraz took on Tommy Paul in the quarterfinals, so the two might encounter again.

Sinner entered Tuesday’s match on a nine-match winning run, which included a grass-court championship in Halle, Germany, played last month. On June 10, he went up to No. 1 in the ATP rankings, displacing Novak Djokovic, after reaching the French Open quarterfinals.

His elimination followed that of Iga Swiatek, the top women’s seed, in the third round.

Including the January Australian Open final, Medvedev has lost his last five meetings against Sinner. That day, Medvedev won the opening two sets but Sinner rallied to win in five sets for his maiden Grand Slam triumph.

For his career, Medvedev is now 1-5 in major finals as a consequence of the loss. He is just one win away from making his eighth appearance.

Is Medvedev suspended from Wimbledon?

On Friday, Medvedev came within a set of victories. In the fourth set, play was delayed at 1-1. However, Saturday’s restart was not that straightforward. Rain stopped play again at the All England Club, and Struff placed himself in position to force a deciding by taking a 3/1 lead in the fourth-set tie-break.

When is Sinner vs. Medvedev?

The quarterfinal match between Jannik Sinner (1) and Daniil Medvedev (5) will take place at Wimbledon on Tuesday, July 9, at 8:30 a.m. ET.
