Teenage tennis sensation Carlos Alcaraz crashes out of Wimbledon after a Fourth Round defeat to Italian Jannik Sinner in four sets on historic day on Centre Court

  • Carlos Alcaraz lost in four sets to Italian Jannik Sinner in the Fourth Round 
  • Sinner beat the Spaniard, seeded fifth, 6-1 6-4 6-7 (8-10) 6-3 on Centre Court
  • Alcaraz was unable to match his career best quarterfinal finish at a Grand Slam

Carlos Alcaraz crashed out of the Wimbledon Fourth Round following a four-set defeat to tenth seed Jannik Sinner despite a stunning third-set tiebreak victory.

Sinner won 6-1 6-4 6-7 (8-10) 6-3 against the Spaniard as the 19-year-old failed to equal his best ever result at a Grand Slam by reaching the quarter-finals, having done so at the French Open earlier this year and last year’s US Open. 

Despite the support of the majority of the crowd on a historic day on Centre Court, the young tennis sensation came unstuck after a brilliant display from his 20-year-old opponent, who also matches his own furthest appearance at a Grand Slam.
