Carlos Alcaraz crashed out of Wimbledon in the fourth round with a 1-6, 4-6, 7-6(10-8), 3-6 loss to Italian, Jannik Sinner.
The 19-year-old sensation already has four titles to his name in 2022 and notably dispatched Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev en route to the Madrid Open crown.
In doing so, he became the first man to defeat Nadal and Djokovic in the same clay court tournament and the youngest player to win a match against a world number one since 2004.
Alcaraz already has two Grand Slam Quarter-Final appearances to his name – at the 2021 US Open and 2022 French Open – and heads to Wimbledon as one of the favourites for glory in only his second attempt.
The big-serving youngster is now ranked world number seven and looks set for a long career in the top echelons of the sport, with pedigree on all surfaces.
Having lost in the Second Round on debut at Wimbledon last year, Alcaraz will be eyeing a strong run this time around, but was made to work hard for his First Round win.
The Spanish teenager twice recovered from a set behind to edge out Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff in a thrilling decider on the opening day of the competition.
