Sinner Outserves Isner, Sets Alcaraz Showdown At Wimbledon

Jannik Sinner will face Carlos Alcaraz in a fourth-round Wimbledon blockbuster after a nearly flawless performance on Friday against John Isner.

The American broke the world record for career aces in the second game of the match, but Sinner dominated from there in a 6-4, 7-6(4), 6-3 victory. The Italian did not face a break point in his two-hour, 20-minute triumph.


Sinner will now play Alcaraz in a battle of former Intesa Sanpaolo Next Gen ATP Finals champions. Alcaraz, who dismissed Oscar Otte in the third round, defeated Sinner in their only previous ATP Head2Head meeting 7-6(1), 7-5 at last year's Rolex Paris Masters.

But the 20-year-old Sinner will be confident after his performance against Isner, who ousted two-time champion Andy Murray in the second round. The 10th seed withstood 24 aces from his opponent and converted two of his four break points.

Sinner arrived at the grass-court major without a win at The Championships. But he has battled past two former Top 10 players in Isner and Stan Wawrinka, also earning a win against Swede Mikael Ymer in the second round.
