Wimbledon, Sinner beat Alcaraz and fly to the quarter-finals

Until the first round he has never won a match on grass, he gives a set but imposes his law on the Spanish superstar. On the horizon Djokovic

Challenge the future, the first glimpse of the slam between the two brightest talents in tennis is beautiful and tiring even to watch in front of the TV. It’s a tug-of-war between phenomena that begins with a complete sinner and ends with Carlos Alcaraz’s arrogance to ignite the three-and-a-half hour battle and, unfortunately, or fortunately, only one winner named Jannik Sinner. The underdog, who was considered dead by everyone even before entering the field, dominated the first two sets, missed two match points in the third game, and eventually triumphed by extricating himself from the difficulties as a true champion after missing the others. 3 match points. “A sinner has no hope,” “The Alcaraz is very powerful.” but not. This time the strongest is Jannik Sinner. The match ends 6-1, 6-4, 6-7 (8), 6-3 and now Novak Djokovic is on the horizon, facing the threat of Dutchman Van Beethoven tonight.

What a team

The award-winning Vagnozzi & Cahill company works, and how it works. To the work started by the technician from Marches following the South Tyrolean split from Riccardo Piatti, the Slam-level expertise of the Australian technician capable of bringing Lleyton Hewitt to world number 1 but also Agassi and most recently, Simona Halep has been added. A system guy, Cahill, who started with Yannick first in “Dad”, between the phone and zoom, when Yannick came out bruised from Rome and Paris, and then personally at Wimbledon splits himself between pitch and suspension with ESPN. Few tips, but good and crucial. An ideal base for a profitable future. Even Andre Agassi, who won the last four championships of his career with Cahill, said the coach was able to give him that command and calm he missed for so long. Now, to reap the rewards is Sinner, for the first time in a Wimbledon quarter-final, someone who has never won a main draw on the promoter until the first round.

the match

The match starts with Yannick Sener’s sending. The first point of Alkaraz, in response, and there are already fears that the prophecies of the malevolent night may come true. Under 0-30, Yannick cuts the shortage in half with serve and forehands, then closes 1-0. Sinner is released, aggressive in response and is 30-0 ahead in the service of the Spaniard who manages to catch up but eventually gives up. Sinner responds flawlessly, also leading 30-15 in Game Six on a Spanish serve: two break points arrive for the Italian, who is now 5-1 ahead. When the group is needed, Sinner goes up to 30-30. Then he finished the match with a bass will rest with a score of 6-1 in 31 minutes. Alcaraz is in a hurry to play, and immediately returns to the field. It starts with a double foul and a forward foul, and finishes under 0-30. Another forehand mistake by Carlitos, and two points were achieved to break Yannick’s serve, who does not miss the opportunity and takes advantage of the third game of the match. Sinner is good at keeping the advantage until the end and also taking back the second set at home for 6-4.

The third part, which could turn into a drama for Alcaraz, is forced to cancel three break points at the opening. Now the Spaniard puts all his “skills” on the field, but Yannick is always ready to attack. In the seventh inning, we go to the advantages, Sinner failed to give the claw that would have killed the game and goes to serve a very accurate turn with the Spaniard with a 4-3 score. You go into the merits, miss the short ball and Jank gets back on track, able to close out 4-4. Suffering gives confidence to Sener, capable of leading 30-30 on the Alcaraz serve. The Blue attack does not pass and then risks something in the tenth game thanks to the sharp drop in the first players on the field. At 6-5 for Alcaraz, Yannick finds his serve and remains zero. We go to break the tie. Sinner continues on second service, Alcaraz is now my surgeon with the first. Minibreak for Alcaraz that goes 4-3 with two servings. Then 5-3 and 6-3. Three fixed points for the Spaniards. The first was canceled with a little luck and tape. Service and direct cancellation of the second. The third is a winning phenomenon. Everything will be rebuilt. At 6-6, a foul by Alcaraz sends Sinner to match point on his serve. Nothing to do, Alcaraz is confident and returns to the third set with a 10-8 first-half victory. In the fourth the suffering is evident, Sinner sprints forward with a break in the fourth but gives 3 chances to immediately return to his opponent. With three points, a champion cancels it and eventually asserts the advantage: 4-1. Oxygen for South Tyrol, a frozen shower of the Spaniard who was finally defeated in an unusual battle. And if this is an appetizer, then the future will be a delicious dish.
