Daniil Medvedev beat world No 1 Jannik Sinner in five sets on Tuesday to reach a second successive Wimbledon semifinal, subduing the gallant challenge of the Italian, who suffered a worrying mid-match health scare.

The fifth-ranked Medvedev triumphed 6-7 (7/9), 6-4, 7-6 (7/4), 2-6, 6-3 to avenge his Australian Open final loss to Sinner in January.

His four-hour victory also ended a five-match losing streak against the Italian as Medvedev reached his ninth Grand Slam semifinal.

The 28-year-old former US Open winner will face either defending champion Carlos Alcaraz or Tommy Paul of the United States for a place in Sunday’s final.

“I knew if I wanted to beat Jannik it needs to be a tough match. He’s not a guy you can beat easy anymore,” said Medvedev.

“I felt at one moment he was not feeling that good but he started feeling better so I’m happy I managed to still stay at a high level.”

Medvedev added: “It’s always tricky because you want to play more points to make him suffer a little bit more but in a good way.”

In a tight first set in which neither man gave up a break point, Medvedev edged ahead in the tie-break on the back of a lung-busting 33-shot rally.
