A three-time defending champion at the All England Club, Novak Djokovic won the first set before the 104-ranked Dutch youngster surprisingly won a 50-minute second set. But Djokovic sped through the next two sets to wrap up the win to advance into his 13th Wimbledon quarterfinal.
Djokovic also took his Wimbledon winning streak to 25 matches. Van Rijthoven was playing his first Grand Slam tournament. On the other hand, Jannik Sinner outduelled Carlos Alcaraz in a matchup of up-and-comers to reach his first Wimbledon quarterfinal.
The 20-year-old Sinner failed to convert two match points in the third-set tiebreaker but recovered to win on Centre Court against the 19-year-old Alcaraz. Djokovic, who was not allowed to play at the Australian Open 2022, played his first match of the year at Dubai Tennis Championships.
Since then, the Serbian won 21 matches out of 27 so far. His only highlight was a title-winning campaign at Rome Masters. On the other hand, Sinner has reached six quarterfinals of his last 10 tournaments including at the Australian Open.
