Novak Djokovic-Carlos Alcaraz rematch underway

When Wimbledon begins on Monday, many tennis fans will be hoping for a rematch of the Novak Djokovic-Carlos Alcaraz semi-final at the French Open that looked so promising for two sets until Alcaraz started cramping and quickly faded.

This time they were to meet in the final. And they would do it on a court where Djokovic, now the men’s all-time leader with 23 Grand Slam titles, has not lost since 2017.

In fact, if Djokovic were to win Wimbledon again, it would give him eight championships at the All England Club, matching Roger Federer’s record.

Djokovic is very likely to get through to the final again after the draw was revealed on Friday. On paper, there shouldn’t be many challenges for him apart from maybe Nick Kyrgios in the quarter-finals. (It’s unclear how fit Kyrgios even is for this tournament, having played just one match after a long injury layoff.) But given Djokovic’s consistency and ability on Wimbledon grass, it would be one of the biggest upsets in many year if he does not play on the last Sunday of the tournament.
