Carlos Alcaraz vs. Novak Djokovic: Previous Match

Carlos was up against the number three seed, Daniil Medvedev, in the semi-final. Everyone thought it would be a close match, but Alcaraz proved to be too good for the Russians. He managed to break Medvedev’s serve at the right time in all sets and beat him in consecutive sets 6-3, 6-3, 6-3. Carlos closed the match with a sensational volley across the line.

Novak Djokovic also faced a tough opponent in the semi-final as he played with the Italian and the eighth seed, Jannik Sinner. He had to do some hard work to get past Sinner, as he was playing really good tennis. But Novak Djokovic showed why he has 23 Grand Slams and won the match 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4).

Carlos Alcaraz vs. Novak Djokovic: Prediction

If anyone were to write the script for the Wimbledon 2023 final, it could not have been better. We have the two best players in the current tennis era up against each other. It would be a spectacular show today at the Centre Court in Wimbledon 2023. It is really difficult to predict a winner because both of them are in serious form and look adamant about getting this Grand Slam under their belt.

Both of them have dropped only two sets each in the whole Championships until the final. We expect nothing short of a five-set thriller today, where we feel Carlos Alcaraz might have an edge over Djokovic. Carlos is moving better than Djokovic on the court, and his speed is unmatchable. It would be an uphill task for him to beat Djokovic, but there is no fun in doing easy tasks, according to the young and fiery Spaniard. In the words of Novak Djokovic, the match is going to be a feast!
