Mystery: who will win the TBSH battle of the champions?

Four-time Slam winner Iga Sviontek and Wimbledon champion Marketa Vondrousova will meet in this match. Previously, the tennis players met once, at Roland Garros, 2020, Sviontek scored a landslide victory. Note that both tennis players before these quarterfinals did not meet a single seeded opponent on the road. The future winner of this match in the 1/2 final will play the best tennis player from the pair Yasmine Paolini – Corey Gauff.

🎾 22:00*: Carlos Alcaraz (Spain, 1) – Max Purcell (Australia, Q), Cincinnati, 1/4 final

Intrigue: how will the match between Alcaraz and the Australian qualifier turn out?

The first racket in the world, Carlos Alcaraz, continues to make his way with great difficulty through the grid of the Cincinnati Masters. He faced Australian qualifier Jordan Thompson in three sets, then defeated American Tommy Paul in over three hours, avenging the loss a week ago in Toronto. Now the 20-year-old Spaniard will face another Australian representative, Max Purcell, whom he has never played before. Max is now the 70th racket in the world. In June, he climbed to the top for himself 62nd place in the ATP rankings. He still has no ATP-level titles, and in present-day Cincinnati, the 25-year-old Purcell earned his first career victory over the current Top 10 player: he knocked out Kasper Ruud in the second round. And in the next round, the Australian stopped the rapid rise of Stan Wawrinka.

Intrigue: Will Novak keep the “zero” in the loss chart in matches with Fritz?

Novak Djokovic is gradually getting back into shape after a month off from performances. In the third round of the Cincinnati Masters, the Serbian star confidently defeated Frenchman Gael Monfils and brought the score of personal meetings with him in official matches at the ATP level to a record of 19-0. In the quarterfinals, Djokovic will play another opponent he has never lost to: American Taylor Fritz. His Novak has won 6 times in six matches so far: in Monte Carlo, Madrid 2019, the Australian Open, Rome, Paris 2021 and in the semifinals of the 2022 ATP Final Championship.
