Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic go head to head in a mouth-watering battle for the 2023 Wimbledon title on Sunday.

For the first time since 2015, the players ranked one and two in the world have come through their respective halves of the draw and will lock horns to lift the Gentleman’s Singles Trophy at SW19.

Unbeaten on Centre Court in over 10 years, Djokovic can move level with Roger Federer by landing his record-equalling eighth Wimbledon title and a 24th grand slam, which would see him surpass Serena Williams as the most decorated player of the Open Era.

The youngest men’s singles finalist since 2006, 20-year-old Alcaraz is aiming to become only the third Spanish man to lift the trophy after Manuel Santana and Rafael Nadal.

Separated by just under 16 years, this is the second-largest age gap between the two men’s singles finalists since Jimmy Connors took on Ken Rosewall in the 1974 championship match.

For one of the players, it will be third time lucky in the head-to-head series. Alcaraz prevailed when they first met in last year’s Madrid semi-finals, though Djokovic came through at the same stage of the French Open a month ago.

It may well have been a much tighter contest at Roland Garros but for an untimely bout of cramp for the Spaniard, who will be desperate to avoid that scenario this time around.

Victorious at Queen’s Club a few weeks ago, Alcaraz is now on an 11-match winning streak on grass, having dropped just two sets on the way to his second major final.

Only Nicolas Jarry and 2021 runner-up Matteo Berrettini in rounds three and four took a set off the reigning US Open champion, who subsequently dismantled Holger Rune and Daniil Medvedev in straight sets.

Against the latter, Alcaraz dropped just nine games – the fewest in a Wimbledon semi-final since Andy Murray (also nine) in his victory over Tomas Berdych seven years ago.

But to lift the trophy, he must deny the man appearing in his record-breaking 35th major final – surpassing the great Chris Evert.

Appearing in his ninth Wimbledon final, Djokovic has only been beaten once in the biggest match on grass – losing to home favourite Murray in straight sets 10 years ago.

But he has not looked back since, and could become the third player to win the tournament five times in a row after Federer and Bjorn Borg.

The Serb, who only dropped sets against Hubert Hurkacz and Andrey Rublev, swept Jannik Sinner aside in the semi-finals, meaning he has now won each of his last nine matches at SW19 against top-10 opposition – a tally only bettered by Borg (11).

One of the biggest events on the sporting calendar, it promises to be an absolute cracker and is certainly not to be missed.

Play gets underway at 2pm BST and will be contested over the best of five sets on Centre Court at Wimbledon.
