Jannik Sinner suffers one of the worst defeats in his career as a result of Carlos Alcaraz‘s fierce retaliation for recent losses at Umag and Wimbledon. Carlos never gives up and even when he is down a break in the fifth set, he reacts and turns the game around. The Italian plays an unbelievable match, serves for the victory, and wastes a match point, missing a critical opportunity.
Fantastic triumph for Alcaraz, who keeps working toward his goal of maintaining his world-leading position. At the conclusion of the game, the Spaniard expressed his joy at having won so admirably by saying this: “Sincerely, I have no idea.
The level was wonderful, Jannik is a phenomenal player, and I think it’s great for everyone to see games like this. Sincerely, I can only say thank you at this time; more comments will have to wait.
I can’t understand how much energy you can convey to me, but I will never stop saying that all the games I win on this field, I win thanks to you.”
Carlos Alcaraz‘s fifteenth record
Alcaraz would become the top player in the world and shatter other significant records if he were to win the competition or even the final (without Casper Ruud).
With Khachanov, Ruud, and Tiafoe as his opponents moving forward, the 19-year-old Spaniard becomes the overwhelming favorite to win the match, particularly if he has a strong recovery from today’s fight. Alcaraz, meantime, surpasses Rafael Nadal at the 2005 Roland Garros to become the youngest semifinalist of a Grand Slam competition thanks to the semifinal.
If we only consider the US Open competition, this remarkable record is made much more extraordinary. Since American winner Pete Sampras, who reached the US Open semifinals in 1990, Alcaraz is the tournament’s youngest semifinalist. Given Carlos Alcaraz‘s statistics and where the tennis player was at the end of the season, there is a greater likelihood that the Spaniard will overtake the top spot by the end of the year, if not this weekend.
