After suffering a devastating loss in the finals of the Hamburg tournament, Carlos Alcaraz opens up about his feelings.

After losing his chance to win a record-tying fifth title in Hamburg, Carlos Alcaraz conceded that Lorenzo Musetti was the superior player and deserved to take home the trophy. Musetti won his first ATP title on Sunday in Hamburg with a stunning 6-4 6-7 (6) 6-4 victory over Alcaraz.

Although Alcaraz was the pre-match favorite, Musetti was giving the Spaniard a run for his money in the final. I believe he was due this victory. Of course, he was a better player than I was “Based on the ATP website, Alcaraz has admitted.

“He gradually became more belligerent. I’m proud of myself because I didn’t play well, but I stayed in the match until the very end.

In the second set, Alcaraz faced five match points, all of which he successfully defended.

Musetti took a 6-4, 5-3 lead after winning the first set and breaking Alcaraz in the opening game of the second set.

When serving for the match in the 10th game of the second set, Musetti wasted two match points in a row. Musetti then threw away a 6-3 lead and three more match points in the tie-break of the second set, allowing Alcaraz to shock everyone and force a third set.

Musetti rallied in the third set after it appeared that Alcaraz would produce another historic victory in 2022. In the tenth game of the third set, when Alcaraz was serving to stay in the final, he was broken.

“While I was understandably furious, I made an effort to keep my cool in front of my opponent. I tried to pardon myself for losing every single match and every single point I was unable to win “As Musetti put it. After such an emotional roller coaster, “I think that was the most [important] thing, even for me,” as the winner said. There are four titles for which Alcaraz has renewed his contract in 2022.
