Wimbledon 2024 LIVE: Tennis scores as Sinner and Alcaraz play in quarter-finals

Sun Sets On Emma Raducanu’s Wimbledon Campaign

World No 1 Jannik Sinner takes on Daniil Medvedev in the match of the day at Wimbledon on Tuesday as the quarter-finals begin at the All England Club.

Sinner is first up on Centre Court against Russian fifth seed Medvedev while defending champion Carlos Alcaraz plays Queen’s winner Tommy Paul in the second match on Court 1.

In the women’s singles, New Zealand qualifier Lulu Sun takes on Donna Vekic in the first match on Court 1 while Jasmine Paolini faces Emma Navarro on Centre Court.

On Monday, Novak Djokovic reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon with a dominant display against Holger Rune on Centre Court on Monday evening before a furious speech accusing fans of being “disrespectful”.

Elena Rybakina produced a superb display earlier in the day before her opponent Anna Kalinskaya was forced to retire hurt. And there were tears for Elina Svitolina, with the Ukrainian left distraught after missile attacks on five cities, with the country’s largest children’s hospital in Kyiv hit.

Wimbledon 2024: Lulu Sun 7-5 4-6 1-6 Donna Vekic

Game, set and match! Donna Vekic ends the run of Lulu Sun as the Croatian reaches her first grand slam semi-final. The 28-year-old lost the first set but roared but behind imrpessive serving, winning 20 of the first 24 points in the deciding third set to seal victory.

It’s been an incredible run for Run, who defeated Emma Raducanu in the preivous round, but it comes to an end on Court One. Vekic is clearly emotional as she seals the win. A grand slam semi-final has been a long time coming.

Wimbledon 2024: Jannik Sinner 7-6, 3-4 Daniil Medvedev*

Sinner is definitely struggling with his movement and he finds himself facing two break points on his own serve. A double break here and this second set is all but over. To his credit, he digs deep and saves them both by outduelling Medvedev from the baseline.

Then a beautifully disguised sliced drop shot has Medvedev scrambling but unable to reach the ball. Medvedev challenges an out call at game point down and it’s overturned to give him another life but he goes long and Sinner survives. Still alive in this second set, just…

Sinner puts a towel over his face at the change of ends, trying to compose himself. His movement definitely isn’t the same but whether that’s a physical ailment or something psychological where he doesn’t trust it is unclear.

The ball-striking has definitely dropped off as well. A simple love hold off Medvedev who needs to take advantage while his opponent is ailing.

Wimbledon 2024: Lulu Sun 7-5 4-6 0-4 Donna Vekic* – BREAK

A second break for Vekic, with Sun struggling now. It’s 16-2 on points for Vekic in the third set and she is closing in on a first Wimbledon semi-final.

Wimbledon 2024: Jannik Sinner 7-6, 2-3 Daniil Medvedev*

Another mini slip from Sinner and Medvedev is starting to dictate most points here. He gets to 15-30 as he Sinner serve comes under more pressure. Misses a chance at a passing shot down the line as he hits the net – that could’ve been two break points.

Instead, Sinner beautifully lobs his opponent at the net, who flails wildly but can’t get anywhere near the ball, but the Italian then nets for deuce.

Big first serve brings up game point but Medvedev finds a world-class cross-court forehand thumped for a winner for a second deuce. He’s the one putting all the pressure on. But Sinner escapes with the hold thanks to a backhand down the line

Wimbledon 2024: Lulu Sun 7-5 4-6 0-4 Donna Vekic* – BREAK

A second break for Vekic, with Sun struggling now. It’s 16-2 on points for Vekic in the third set and she is closing in on a first Wimbledon semi-final.

Wimbledon 2024: *Lulu Sun 7-5 4-6 0-3 Donna Vekic – BREAK

This has taken a turn for Lulu Sun. Donna Vekic breaks to love at the start of the second set as the qualifier misses two backhands in a row and then double-faults on break point. The world No 33 is in control.

The Croatian holds to love again. That’s 12 points in a row at the start of the third set.

Wimbledon 2024: *Jannik Sinner 7-6, 1-3 Daniil Medvedev

Sinner definitely isn’t moving as freely as he was earlier. Maybe that slip at the end of the first set saw him tweak something. Will be interesting to see if he gets any treatment at any point.

A pretty comfortable hold for Medvedev to 15 and he’s in complete control of this second set.

Wimbledon 2024: Jannik Sinner 7-6, 1-2 Daniil Medvedev* – BREAK!

We’ve just spotted a unicorn in this match. A break of serve! There hadn’t been a single break point for either man but Medvedev brings up tow break points as 15-40.

Sinner goes wide and Medvedev has the first break of serve! Is Sinner walking a bit gingerly as he goes back to his chair? It may just be disappointment at losing his serve. Can the Russian consolidate the break?

Wimbledon 2024: Jannik Sinner 7-6, 1-1 Daniil Medvedev

Perhaps we can expect a bit of a drop-off after that blistering end to the first set? Sinner is pushed on his own serve but prevails before Medvedev chucks in a double fault to allow the No 1 seed back to 40-30 but a powerful forehand means the game doesn’t go to deuce.

A hold apiece to start things off.
