Novak Djokovic is chasing his eighth men’s singles Wimbledon title to equal Roger Federer’s record
In a highly anticipated clash, Serbian tennis maestro Novak Djokovic and rising star Carlos Alcaraz of Spain will go head-to-head in the Wimbledon 2023 men's singles final on Sunday.
Ranked world No. 2 in the ATP tennis rankings, Djokovic is eyeing his eighth Wimbledon title, a feat that would equal the record held by Swiss legend Roger Federer. A victory would mark his 24th Grand Slam crown, putting him on par with Margaret Court's all-time record (across Open and Amateur Eras). The 36-year-old superstar stands on the verge of etching his name alongside the tennis legends with this monumental achievement. Djokovic entered the final with a 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 win over Italian Jannik Sinner in the semi-finals on Friday.
On the other side, Carlos Alcaraz, a rising star in the tennis world, has grabbed the attention of all. The 18-year-old Spaniard has displayed maturity beyond his years, impressing both spectators and pundits alike. He has entered his maiden Wimbledon final with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 win over Daniil Medvedev in the other semi-final.
In the head-to-head records, both players are tied at 1-1 with Carlos Alcarz beating Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of the ATP Masters 1000 in Madrid last year.
