He is on an 11-match winning streak, that includes a title run on grass at Queen’s and his march to the final at SW19, and will be bidding for his sixth trophy of the season when he takes on Djokovic on Sunday.
“This is a dream for me, playing semi-final here, being able to play a final here in Wimbledon, honestly, I can’t believe it. I’m going to enjoy this amazing moment for me and it’s time to keep dreaming,” said Alcaraz after beating Medvedev for a second time in three meetings.
Alcaraz faced just one break point through the opening two sets, without dropping serve, but the third set alone witnessed a combined five breaks of serve.
“It’s really, really difficult to close the match, it’s never easy. You have to be really, really focused. Daniil obviously didn’t want to lose, he fought until the last ball,” said Alcaraz, who wrapped up the win in under two hours.
“He’s an amazing fighter, runner, player. I had to show my best in that tough moment, I had to play aggressive and be myself all the time. I think that was the key to close that match.”
