Alcaraz vs Djokovic – Wimbledon 2023 final preview

The Wimbledon final. Even typing it sends shivers down the spine, so what it's like to be Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic is anyone's guess. Even better, it's the final we all wanted – the world number one and boy genius against the most successful player in men's tennis history. The pair had an epic contest at the French Open before Alcaraz succumbed to cramp but this should be huge.

Carlos Alcaraz was at his brutal best in dispatching Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in Friday's semi-final. The 20-year-old Spaniard became the youngest men's Wimbledon finalist since compatriot Rafa Nadal in 2006, and is just the third of his countrymen to make it this far – Manuel Santana completing the trio back in the 1960s. A month after crumbling in a French Open semi-final when allowing his emotions to get the better of his physical state, the world number one is desperate for revenge and the shorter points and chance to go for big shots on a faster court should make Alcaraz's job easier at SW19. His increasing ease on grass has been stunning, now he faces the biggest task in tennis: against an all-time great on his favourite court.

Novak Djokovic is attempting nothing short of history. Equalling Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 grand slam singles titles. Equalling Roger Federer's record eight Wimbledons. Equalling Bjorn Borg and Federer on five All England Club titles in a row in the Open era. Keeping the calendar slam dream alive until the US Open. Extending his unbeaten run on Centre Court to 46 matches and into a ludicrous 11th year. Not even a controversial call from the umpire of hindrance in the Serbian's straight sets semi-final defeat of Jannik Sinner could derail the 36-year-old, whose relentless baseline game and almost impossible fitness levels have never been matched in men's tennis and he's better than ever. In short, Djokovic is a freak. A genius freak.

Alcaraz's backhand return against Medvedev was the cornerstone of his victory and his best way of winning is to dictate the point and put Djokovic under pressure whenever he gets a look at a second serve. You need weapons to beat Djokovic and Alcaraz's brutal ground strokes and better than passable volleys are just that. Yet Djokovic's relentlessness and ability to deliver when it matters most – he's yet to lose a tiebreak in 15 attempts at grand slams in 2023 – makes him favourite. They're tied at one victory each in their head-to-head records, with that Roland Garros epic front of mind.
