In a battle of two prodigies, Italy's 10th seed Jannik Sinner advanced to the quarter-finals in four entertaining sets against Spanish fifth seed Carlos Alcaraz 6-1, 6-4, 6-7, 6-3 at Wimbledon in the men's singles.

The 20-year-old Sinner, used his forehand strikes to his advantage to defeat his 19-year-old opponent, who was resilient in the third set to give himself hope, only to be broken early in the fourth as his rival clinched victory. 

Serbian top seed Novak Djokovic claimed victory in four sets too, ending the run of Dutch wildcard Tim van Rijthoven by a score of 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 in a match that finished shortly before 11pm.

It means Djokovic is now due to play Sinner for a spot in the semi-finals on Tuesday (July 5).

Ninth seed Cameron Norrie is the only British player left in singles competition, following his victory over American 30th seed Tommy Paul 6-4. 7-5. 6-4.

He is set to face David Goffin for a spot in the final four, meaning one of the two will be guaranteed their first Grand Slam semi-final.

The Belgian endured a mammoth four hours and 36 minutes to defeat 23rd seed Frances Tiafoe of the United States in five sets 7-6, 5-7, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5.

Tatjana Maria and Jule Niemeier are to face each other in the women’s quarter-finals, with the two unseeded Germans winning their respective matches today.

Maria came from a set down to defeat Latvian 12th seed Jelena Ostapenko 5-7, 7-5, 7-5, two days after knocking out Greek fifth seed Maria Sakkari.

Neimeier eliminated the last remaining British women in the draw, Heather Watson, in straight sets 6-2, 6-4.

Marie Bouzková of Czech Republic continues to have a fairytale run in the tournament in what has been a breakout season for the 23-year-old, beating France’s Caroline Garcia 7-5, 6-2.

The unseeded player previously eliminated the American trio of Danielle Collins, Ann Li and Alison Riske-Amritraj in her first three rounds.

Before coming to London for the Championships, her best Grand Slam singles results were second round appearances at the 2022 Australian and French Opens.

The Czech player is next scheduled to be in action against Tunisian third seed Ons Jabeur, who progressed with a 7-6, 6-4 win over 24th seed Elise Mertens of Belgium.
