Top seed Carlos Alcaraz faces the toughest test of his grass court career. He takes on second seed and defending champion Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon men's singles final. Alcaraz has already won the US Open and won several clay court tournaments. Before this year though he'd never made it past the fourth round at Wimbledon. Was he going to be like Casper Ruud or Iga Swiatek and fail to show his best form on grass? He started to disprove that theory when winning the Queen's Club tournament and has continued to show good form at Wimbledon. Only two sets have been dropped by the Spaniard on his way to this final. It's a match he has to win to remain top of the world rankings.
Novak Djokovic will replace him if getting a second straight win over Alcaraz. He recently beat him in the Roland Garros final, avenging a previous loss that was also on clay. The Serb is bidding to win this title for the fifth time in a row and the eighth overall. A win will also see him winning four successive Grand Slams and his third in 2023. Not since 2017 has he lost a match at Wimbledon and even then he retired with an injury. Like his opponent, Djokovic has dropped two sets on his way to this final. That wasn't the case in his semifinal when seeing off Jannik Sinner in straight sets. He has a tremendous Grand Slam final record and has won ten of the last 12 he's played. He'll be desperate to show his superiority over Alcaraz and we tip him to win this final.
