Wimbledon: Djokovic beats Kecmanovic; Sinner organizes the blockbuster Alcaraz


Six-time champion Novak Djokovic produced a masterclass on the grass court at Wimbledon, where the top seed advanced to the fourth round after a win over Miomir Kecmanovic on center court on Friday.

The No.1-seeded Serb secured a top-flight 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 victory in the third round against compatriot Kecmanovic.

Djokovic produced another sublime display to overwhelm his opponent, breaking Kecmanovic’s serve six times on the way to an hour and 52 minute win.

The top seed will now face Dutch wild card Tim van Rijthoven in the next round.

Jannik Sinner outscored opponent John Isner in a 6-4, 7-6(4), 6-3 win. The Italian didn’t face a break point in his two-hour-and-20-minute triumph.

Sinner will face Carlos Alcaraz in a fourth-round blockbuster at Wimbledon after a near-flawless performance on Friday.

Friday’s victory made 10th-seeded Sinner the youngest Italian in the open era to appear in the fourth round of Wimbledon.

Spanish teenage sensation Carlos Alcaraz wasted no time improving on his best Wimbledon campaign, sealing a place in the fourth round with a 6-3, 6-1, 6-2 win over Oscar Otte.

The Spaniard set the tone on Court 1 by winning the first eight points of the match and then winning the first five games of the second set.

The fifth seed saved the only break point he faced by breaking serve on six of 20 chances in a dominating victory. He showed great progress through the sets and has now won eight straight sets since winning the first round against Jan-Lennard Struff.
