After losing to Jannik Sinner in the round of 16 at Wimbledon, Carlos Alcaraz is getting ready to play in a tournament again this week. The ATP 500 tournament in Hamburg will serve as the setting for his comeback; the 19-year-old Spaniard is the top seed in the tournament, and he is scheduled to play Nicola Kuhn in the first round.
The fact of the matter is that Alcaraz has the potential to add another chapter to history if he is victorious in the German competition. The Spanish prodigy is in a position where he has a chance to accomplish something that has not been done since 2005, when Rafael Nadal was the one to do it. But what exactly is that? advancing to the top four positions.
At 19 years and 2 months old, Alcaraz has a chance to become the youngest player to break into the top four in the ranking. His hero, who achieved this feat in 2005, is the only player younger than Alcaraz. In order to do this, Alcaraz is need to depart Hamburg with the trophy in his luggage. If he is successful in doing so, he will be able to catch up to Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas.
