Wimbledon is set for its most anticipated men’s final in years as Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz face off on center court on Sunday.

The clash is sure to be one to divide opinion, but who do our experts at Telegraph Sport think will emerge victorious?

Djokovic in four sets

The youngster will come to the king of Wimbledon with furious speed and intent, but many of his best shots will bounce off Djokovic’s relentless defense. The errors will accumulate and the stress will be found in the service of Alcaraz. Once he starts missing his spots, he’ll become a sitting duck.\

It could be a generational contest, akin to the dethroning of Pete Sampras by Roger Federer in 2001. While the same was said of the Djokovic-Alcaraz match at Roland Garros last month, that clash was derailed by the youngster Spaniard suffering from cramps. . Here at Wimbledon, Alcaraz is in the form of his life, ready to move the seven-time champion onto the court with all of his new grass expertise. Will it be enough? I always predict that Djokovic will win, given his bizarre ability to handle any game and recover from lost causes. But the speed and resilience of both men suggests it has the makings of a classic.

Alcaraz gave a brilliant performance in his semi-final against Daniil Medvedev, but Djokovic is just going to go a bit too far this year. Alcaraz need more experience on grass to end Djokovic’s 10-year unbeaten run on center court.

Djokovic in four sets

Novak Djokovic will win 3 sets to one. Watching the Serb in action at Wimbledon, he simply didn’t make a mistake. Alcaraz has also been brilliant, but has yet to weed out the mistakes in his game. His time will no doubt come. But maybe only after Djokovic leaves.

Djokovic deserves to be the favorite heading into the final due to his incredible winning streak and performances over the fortnight. But Alcaraz is a generational talent playing at a remarkable level. His shooting, speed on the court and swagger mean he can’t be written off – but it looks like he needs to win one of the first two sets to stand a chance.
