Former world number one Mats Wilander has expressed dissatisfaction with the draw of Wimbledon 2024 where Italy’s Jannik Sinner and Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz are likely to clash in the semifinal.
The second Grand Slam of the year is already underway where players from all over the world are participating to showcase their talent and secure the ultimate prize. In the men’s singles category, two players who will be the center of attraction will be Sinner and Alcaraz as they are already regarded as two of the best players currently playing in the men’s singles category.
Unfortunately, the two are set to face off in the semifinals as the Italian tennis star was given the top seed for the competition whereas the Spaniard has been seeded three for the mega-event.
Wilander was recently quoted in a report where he expressed dissatisfaction with the draw. The former world number one was of the opinion that the tennis world needs to see two best players competing each other in the final of a mega-event, not anytime before that.
“We’ve already had Alcaraz-Sinner in Grand Slams, but not in the final, and we’ve reached a stage where we need them,” he said. “Because we all know that we have two superstars here who will feel very comfortable with the idea of winning and winning again for a long time. They need to further establish the revolution they are leading by facing each other for a Major title.”
Sinner recently became the world number one as he replaced Serbia’s legendary tennis star Novak Djokovic at the top of the ATP rankings. The 37-year-old lost the top spot in the men’s ranking after being forced to withdraw from French Open just before the start of the quarterfinal against Norway’s Casper Ruud. On the other hand, Alcaraz was the one who ended up lifting the title in Paris as he defeated Germany’s Alexander Zverev in the final in a five-set thriller with a score of 6–3, 2–6, 5–7, 6–1, 6–2.
