Carlos Alcaraz says the blockbuster Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic will be the “best moment of my life”.

The world No.1 is aiming for his maiden SW19 title but comes up against the toughest test of all in Djokovic, who is aiming for a record eighth success on center court.

A 16-year age gap between the pair makes Sunday a generation game as Alcaraz seek to dethrone 36-year-old Djokovic. And the Spaniard, who got rid of third seed Daniil Medvedev, will cherish the moment.

“It will probably be the best time of my life – probably,” he said. “Playing a final here at Wimbledon is something I dream of when I start playing tennis. As I said before, it’s even better to play against Novak.

“It’s going to be a very emotional moment for me. But I will try to stay calm at this time. For Novak, it’s one more day, one more moment. For me, it’s going to be the best time of my life, I think.
