Wimbledon 2022 LIVE: Djokovic vs Sinner latest score and updates

1657024134

Centre Court filled up pretty promptly yesterday when Nick Kyrgios was first up on court but it’s taking a little longer this lunchtime as we await Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner.

The press box isn’t quite as full either, perhaps because of the overlap with Cam Norrie’s quarter-final over on Court 1 not too long from now.

Djokovic calls for earlier start times on Centre Court

Novak Djokovic has called on Wimbledon to revert to an earlier start time on Centre Court in a bid to avoid yet more late finishes.

The six-time champion managed to avoid the 11pm curfew in beating tennis’ Cinderella man in Tim van Rijthoven on Centre last night.

It was the latest in a series of late finishes created by the new 1.30pm start time on Centre this year and the lengthy on-court interviews and then 20-minute gap between matches.

But Djokovic, who dropped a set in beating his Dutch opponent 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2, said discussions had already begun with the All England Club about moving back to an earlier start time for the remainder of the tournament.

“I hear there are some talks about maybe moving the beginning of the matches, the first matches on the big courts, especially Centre Court, a bit earlier,” said the 20-time Grand Slam champion.

Story so far: Sinner

The Italian has been enjoying a superb run at this year’s Championships, taking plenty of big name scalps on his way to a first quarter-final here.

Sinner beat former French Open champion Stan Wawrinka in his first round match and also took care of John Isner – who beat Andy Murray – before causing an upset against the much-fancied Carlos Alcaraz in the last-16.

Story so far: Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has made relatively light work of reaching the quarter-finals, though he has dropped a couple of sets along the way, one to Kwon Soon-woo in his opener and another against Dutchman Tim van Rijthoven in the fourth round.
