Wimbledon 2023 Men’s Semi-Finals Predictions

by Alex Mann

We are only two days away from the Wimbledon final. Here are our Wimbledon 2023 Men’s Semi-Final Predictions.

Wimbledon 2023 Men’s Semi-Final Predictions

I think we should start with what happened yesterday.  Here is my Day 11 Predictions Summary – Women’s Semi-Finals.

The predictions

Svitolina to beat Vondrousova in 2 sets
Sabalenka to beat Jabeur in 2 sets

Day 11 Results

Vondrousova beat Svitolina in 2 sets – 0 points
Jabeur beat Sabalenka in 3 sets – 0 points

The 2023 Women’s Singles Final is now set. Marketa Vondrousova will face last year’s finalist, Ons Jabeur, for a chance to take home the Venus Rosewater Dish.

Vondrousova played a perfect match to end the fairy-tale run of Elina Svitolina. The Czech is the first unseeded woman to reach the Wimbledon singles final since 1963.

Jabeur returned from the brink of defeat to defeat Aryna Sabalenka in three grueling sets. Ons now has a chance to right her wrongs of last year’s Wimbledon final defeat and lift the trophy for the first time.

Now it’s time to preview the Men’s semi-finals.

Novak Djokovic (2) vs Jannik Sinner (8)

In a rematch of last year’s quarter-final, the 7-time champion Novak Djokovic takes on the young Italian, Jannik Sinner for a place in the Wimbledon final. A year ago, Sinner took two sets to love lead against Djokovic, only for the Serb to fight his way back and win in five sets. If you don’t remember the match, you may remember Djokovic hitting one of the best passing shots I’ve ever seen. The Serb hit a spiderman-like, on the full stretch, cross-court, passing shot which flew straight past a flabbergasted Sinner. If that match was anything to go by, expect this one to be even better. Sinner has the game to trouble Djokovic. He has power on both wings and more importantly, has one of the strongest backhands on tour which will stand up to Djokovic’s two-hander. The Italian’s serve has been very effective this fortnight and will need to continue to hit his spots against the best returner in the world. The one part of the Italian’s game that Djokovic will expose is his net game. I think the Serb may bring out the backhand drop shot to take Sinner out of his comfort zone. Sinner will need to keep the points short and outhit Djokovic. I have no doubt he can do it for a set or two. But over five sets, I can’t see it.

Prediction – Djokovic to win in 4 sets

Carlos Alcaraz (1) vs Daniil Medvedev (3)

Stylistically, this is the most intriguing of the two men’s semi-final matches. The charismatic Alcaraz takes on the big-serving, rock-solid Medvedev. Medvedev narrowly came through a tough five-set match against Chris Eubanks in the quarter-final, while Alcaraz dispatched fellow 20-year-old, Holger Rune in three sets. Rune didn’t play a bad match. Alcaraz was just too good. The Spaniard’s forehand was on fire, and his movement was exceptional. Medvedev is one of the best movers on tour and his ability to turn defense into attack from his extreme return positions is incredible. I expect Medvedev to continue this trend and return from deep positions to nullify Alcaraz’s shots. However, if the Russian’s return is slightly off, Alcaraz will take advantage and will look to serve and volley to take time away from Medvedev. When the Spaniards beat the Russians in the final of Indian Wells, the drop shot worked a treat. I could see him implementing this strategy again. As good as Medvedev’s movement is, it’s hard to defend on grass. Medvedev will put up a good fight and could snatch a set, but I expect Alcaraz to come through.

Prediction – Alcaraz to win in 4 sets
