    Djokovic is incredibly unlikeable.

    Quite refreshing as this is the most open Wimbledon in many a year. We could indeed see 2 complete surprise winners in both male and female draws.

    Djokovic is an absolute worst *. Proven again and again and again as the mask slips.

    I’d be amazed if Alcaraz doesn’t win it. Probably an Alcaraz v Djokovic final but I can’t see Djokovic beating him. He is coming into the game at a great time as well is Alcaraz. He looks like someone who could really dominate the sport.

    Good player but * the bed a bit imo.

    Djokovic has had a really easy draw. Some really talented young players in Sinner and Alcaraz but men's game seems to be lacking a bit of depth just now. Wouldn't be good for the tour at all to see a 37 yo Djokovic recovering from knee surgery winning it

    De Minaur pulled out with injury. Djokovic into the semis.

    Could see he didn’t look comfortable after he hit the winning shot in his last game.

    Should be interesting viewing today. Djokovic has played a * of a lot less tennis than Musetti.. most important a bye for Novak and a 5 setter for Musetti in the QFs. The easiest of 3 set wins for Djokovic in the last 16 too. Hard to see that not being one sided but the fact Djokovic had knee surgery 4 weeks ago adds a bit of intrigue.

    Alcaraz smoked Medvedev here last year but Medvedev is playing a lot better than he was then, and Alcaraz hasn’t quite looked the animal of last year.

    No idea how they’ll go. If I had to guess I’d say 3-0 Djokovic and 3-2 Alcaraz.

    Won't surprise me to see Musetti take a set off Djokovic but Djokovic will win. Musetti is stronger on clay. Alcaraz has had quite a few slow starts in recent times so that's the main concern for him. Medvedev is a great disruptor and definitely has a chance even though I still think Alcaraz will win.
