World No.1 Jannik Sinner has crashed out of Wimbledon with a quarter-final defeat to Russian fifth-seed Daniil Medvedev.

Sinner was on a collision course to face fellow young superstar Carlos Alcaraz in the last four, which would’ve been an absolute blockbuster semi-final in SW19.

Sinner and Alcaraz are the new poster boys of professional men’s tennis but it was fellow title hopeful Medvedev won 6-7 (7-9) 6-4 7-6 (7-4) 2-6 6-3 on Tuesday.

It means that the Russian has reached the Wimbledon semi-finals for the second year in a row after his best run in SW19 last year, as he eventually lost to Alcaraz.
