Wimbledon: Medvedev wins, Jannik Sinner eliminated

No dice: Jannik Sinner tried hard, but in the end Daniil Medvedev got the better of him and eliminated the Italian from Wimbledon. Decisive was the malaise experienced in the third set by Sinner, who complained of severe dizziness and è was forced into a 12-minute medical-break. He returned to the court and tried to get back into the match, winning the fourth set as well, but in the fifth he è had to surrender to his opponent.

Fifth set was perfect the one played by Medvedev who after a bit of fatigue felt in the fourth set gave all his energy coming back into the match and managing to break down Jannik Sinner’s defenses. The South Tyrolean tried hard but then had to give in.

Splendid fourth set by Jannik Sinner, who seemed to have overcome the physical difficulties experienced in the third set. Medvedev felt a bit of fatigue but Sinner è was adept at staying mentally in the match and taking advantage of his opponent’s sluggishness.

Third set, déjà vu with yellow: Sinner è was again broken in the third game, and then left the court due to a physical problem. In fact, Jannik complained of dizziness at the end of the third game and asked for a medical time-out, returning to the locker room. After a 12-minute break, the world number one è reentered the court to applause and the match è resumed. Jannik was certainly not at his best and initially blamed Medvedev’s deadly shots but then with grit and determination è returned to the match but there was nothing to be done: his opponent è won the set with an ace in the 11th point of the tie-break.

Second set, Medvedev perfect in response got the first break of the match in the third game. Sinner, on the other hand, failed è to level up partly due to unexpected free errors and began to struggle steadily, even in serve. In the seventh game l'Azzurro nullified two break points, but failed to overturn the inertia: Medvedev closed 6-4 proving unassailable on serve so far.

Very hard-fought first set, where the serves of both tennis players dominated. The world number one easily held the serve but, on the other hand, failed to consistently trouble the Russian, who held serve without any particular trouble without conceding break balls. The balance reigned until the hard-earned tie-break: the Blue under initially 1-3 kept his cool and closed 9-7 after some very high-tension exchanges (decisive a fatal double fault of the Russian).
