19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz is out of Wimbledon Championships 2022 as the teen sensation got defeated by Jannik Sinner with a score of 1-0, 4-6, 7-6 (10/8), 3-6 in the Round of 16 to reach the quarterfinals at the third Grand Slam.

Alcaraz was one of the heavy favourites at the tournament, although his record on the surface was not so stunning looking at his form this tennis season, he was in the top 5 following Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.

The two had met before twice in their ATP career and the Spaniard led the head-to-head record with 2-0. Their first meeting was in 2019 at the Round of 64 of Ferrero Challenger Open and in 2021 at the Paris Master’s Round of 32.
