Carlos Alcaraz storms back to beat Tommy Paul and edges closer to Wimbledon repeat




Carlos Alcaraz dropped another set en route to victory at Wimbledon. The defending champion has learned to win ugly this fortnight.


And that was no different on Tuesday as he booked his spot in the semi-final with a 5-7 6-4 6-2 6-2 result over Tommy Paul, despite hitting 37 unforced errors.

He will now face Daniil Medvedev in a repeat of last year’s semi-final as he edges ever closer to a repeat of his 2023 title run
Alcaraz and Paul came into the quarters with a level 2-2 record against each other. The American was on a nine-match winning streak after being crowned the Queen’s Club champion while Alcaraz was 11 matches unbeaten at SW19, lifting the trophy last year. But something had to give.

It was clear that neither man wanted to snap their respective streaks. They broke each other early on before the world No. 3 came through a marathon, 18-minute game, saving four break points. But Alcaraz couldn’t do anything with his own opportunities to take the lead – he went zero for seven on break points.
