Fifth seed Daniil Medvedev narrowly defeated world number one Jannik Sinner in a grueling five-set match to secure his spot in the Wimbledon semifinals for the second consecutive year on Tuesday. The match, characterized by fluctuating momentum and periods of inactivity, was more engaging than thrilling, yet Medvedev was unfazed as he emerged victorious with a score of 6-7(7) 6-4 7-6(4) 2-6 6-3 on the covered Centre Court. This win broke Medvedev's streak of five consecutive losses to Sinner and avenged his painful loss to the Italian in this year's Australian Open final, where he had squandered a two-set lead.

"I knew that if I wanted to beat Jannik, it would be a challenging match," Medvedev remarked, aiming for his first appearance in the SW19 final. "I'm truly pleased with the victory, satisfied with my performance, and eager for what's ahead." Top seed Sinner managed to win the opening set through a close tiebreak after saving a set point, but errors started to surface in his game. After dropping the second set, he required off-court treatment early in the third set due to apparent illness. Despite losing the third-set tiebreak, Sinner rallied in the fourth set, forcing a decisive fifth set. Medvedev, however, secured an early break and maintained his composure to clinch the win after four hours of play.
