By John

Historic and unforgettable day for Jannik Sinner. First the news of Djokovic's withdrawal from Roland Garros: news that establishes him as the new world number in the ATP Ranking. Then the victory in the quarter-finals of the Parisian slam tournament against Dimitrov: a success that projects him for the first time in his career among the top four of the most important clay tournament in the world.

Sinner got the better of the Bulgarian in three sets: 6-2, 6-4, 7-6.

Carlos Alcaraz will face the new world number 1, Jannik Sinner, in the semi-final at Roland Garros. The Spaniard, third seeded in the tournament, beat the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, number 9 in the ranking and seeding, in three sets, with a score of 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-4.
