Maria holds on, forcing Niemeier to serve for the set at 5-4, as does Djokovic, who leads Sinner 3-0.

Immediately, Sinner finds himself with three break points below – he hasn’t bothered the scorer yet – and saves the first two but fails to get a third. At this point, Calvin Betton, our resident coach, points out that “Djokovic will put Sinner in positions where he doesn’t like being. He never gives rhythm to an opponent, he never gives him three strokes at the same time in a row. Sinner likes the pace and there’s no way to win the game other than hitting net winners for three sets. “

Niemeier, meanwhile, holds on 5-3, but lowers his fifth double. So far, he has come out with his own, and he could go through this match, but in the end his nonsense – he also spends a lot of time with an easy right relay – will cost him if he doesn’t solve it. She leads Maria 5-3.

Looking at Sinner, it’s really remarkable that he can generate so much power given his chicken-style legs. But it gives him a serious blow: so far, his problems have come against players good enough to endure it; before Alcaraz, he hadn’t beaten any of the top 10 in a long time and doesn’t have (yet?) the tools to vary his approach when Plan A doesn’t work. Djokovic clings to love, while Maria narrowly avoids going down for a double break, defending well and losing 3-4.

Djokovic and Sinner are out in the middle, and watching two games at once, instead of four, feels domesticated and intense at the same time. Niemeier, meanwhile, holds on again, again in two and leads Maria 4-2.

Maria finds her own right hand, beating a 15-0 winner and holding on to love. Now she will feel calmer and, after winning the last point of the game, she looks at her box as if to tell them she is fine. It may be too late for this set, but the match is becoming a competition.

She is a suitable power, she is Niemeier, and she is using her strong fort to aim at Mary’s reverse; Maria is cutting almost everything, trying to deny Niemeier a chance to unleash her power, and it really doesn’t work. A double at 40-30 gives you the dou, but it doesn’t smell like the next two points. Maria 1-3 Niemeier

At 30-all, Maria, who is not at all resolved, cuts a right hand, but responds with a heavier service for the T, and is too good for Niemeier. He can’t push his first advantage, failing a lob under pressure when Niemeier charges into the net, then an ace is followed by a double. But he finally finished, securing his first game by 1-2.

A nervous service game by Niemeier that includes a double, but at 40-30 his footwork gets his right side of the ball and means he can go in line or cross; she chooses the latter, dematerializing a winner that will make her feel pretty good with life. She leads 2-0.

Immediately, Niemeier lifts two break points, scoring on the return to lose the first before Maria gently throws a squash shot. Maria 0-1 Niemeier

And play!

Players are on the court falling. We will be out soon.

Niemeier, on the other hand, is at the beginning of his career and has the power to burn. This is only her second Wimbledon, but she eliminated Anett Kontaveit, the number two seed, and being relatively unknown makes it difficult to plan.

To take us far we have Maria v Niemeier. Maria has expelled three seeds – Cirstea, Sakkari and Ostapenko – and is fleeing her life. Before Wimbledon, she had never done better than the second round of a major, but seeing her now, with her family, she is a mother of two, you can see that she has reached balance, so even though he’s 34, it’s no wonder he is. playing so well.

Good afternoon and welcome to Wimbledon 2022. Yes, the competition started last week and we have been enjoying our lives more since then, but it is today that we have reached 88 mph and see what Doc Emmet Brown called ” some serious insult. ”

Before, the second Tuesday meant women’s quarterfinals, but from this year we have two and two men’s, and tomorrow the same, a sensible fit that guarantees us two great portions of good tennis.

And we don’t waste time filling our face with an absolutely convulsive dish of Novak Djokovic. [1] v Jannik Sinner [10], which opens proceedings at the Center. The former may be the first seed, but with Rafael Nadal halfway through a grand slam, he can’t claim to be the best player in the world … unless he can win here. And he will imagine doing exactly that, except that Sinner is, as of Sunday, in the shape of his life, separating Carlos Alcaraz with the strength to serve and return. If he plays again too, we are looking for a potential classic.

And that’s not all! There is no sport in the world less predictable and with more potential champions than women’s tennis, so choose which of Marie Bouzkova and Ons Jabeur [3], Tatjana Maria and Jule Niemeier will make the last four a commission too stupid even for this blog, but everyone will know that this could be just the opportunity of their lives. Also, David Goffin vs. Cameron Norrie [9] it will be a fascinating battle of turns, angles and intensity with all the potential to drag us the distance. Ooh yes!

Play: 13:00 BST on track number 1, 13:30 BST on the central track
