Fifth seed Daniil Medvedev edged out world No. 1 Jannik Sinner in a grinding five-set battle to reach the Wimbledon semifinals for the second successive year today.

Jasmine Paolini is the first Italian woman to make the Wimbledon semifinals, eclipsing compatriots Camila Giorgi (2018), Francesca Schiavone (2009), Silvia Farina Elia (2003) and Laura Golarsa (1989)

A strange match full of momentum shifts and lulls was absorbing rather than gripping but Medvedev did not care as he triumphed 6-7(7) 6-4 7-6(4) 2-6 6-3 on a covered Centre Court.

It snapped Medvedev’s five-match losing sequence to Sinner and avenged his bitter defeat by the Italian in this year’s Australian Open final when he squandered a two-set lead.

Carlos Alcaraz won the battle of the two most recent Queen's Club champions as the Spaniard edged closer to winning a second successive Wimbledon title with an enthralling 5-7 6-4 6-2 6-2 victory over American Tommy Paul.

Vekic puts Sun in shade

Experienced Croatian Donna Vekic ended Lula Sun’s extraordinary Wimbledon journey on a damp Tuesday, battling past New Zealand’s 123rd-ranked qualifier 5-7 6-4 6-1 to reach her maiden Grand Slam singles semifinal on her 43rd main draw appearance. Seventh seed Jasmine Paolini blazed past American Emma Navarro 6-2 6-1, becoming the first Italian woman to make the semifinals where she will meet Vekic. "It's a dream to be here in this position,” she said — Reuters
