The reigning champion, Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, and world number 1 Jannik Sinner’s executioner, Russian Daniil Medvedev, will face off on Friday, July 12 at Wimbledon. A year later, they repeat their rivalry in the same round of the Grand Slam on grass.

The Murcian was superior then by a triple 6-3, as well as this season in the Indian Wells final (7-6, 6-1), for a global balance of 4-2 in his favor. The series opened with Medvedev’s victory in the second round of Wimbledon 2021, when the Murcian was an 18-year-old making his debut.

The Alcaraz-Sinner duel at Roland Garros can be seen on open television. The Disney Discovery group maintains broadcasts on Max and Eurosport, but is opened to the general public through the television channel DMAX.

Wimbledon plans to open the men’s semi-final program at 1:00 pm local time, 2:00 pm The finals, women’s and men’s, on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, at 3:00 pm
