The Spanish Davis Cup captain discusses Carlos Alcaraz’s US Open victory.

Sergi Bruguera, the captain of Spain’s Davis Cup squad, stated that he believed it was only a matter of time before Carlos Alcaraz claimed his maiden Grand Slam victory. With a score of 6-4 2-6 7-6 (1) 6-3 on Sunday, 19-year-old Alcaraz upset Casper Ruud in the US Open final.

In the US Open final, Alcaraz wasn’t only aiming for his first Grand Slam victory; he also had the No. 1 spot in mind. Alcaraz became the youngest No. 1 in tennis history after winning the US Open final. Alcaraz won two Masters championships earlier this year.

The week Alcaraz had was impressive, with many five-set matches and a great final. “With Alcaraz, we knew that this was going to happen sooner or later, but everything has come very quickly, which is impressive. He is in spectacular shape, both physically and mentally, but the most important thing for us is that he comes to meet us on Tuesday and has time to recover,” Bruguera said, according to Punto de Break.

Alcaraz declared himself prepared to claim a Grand Slam.

Alcaraz announced to the tennis world that he was prepared to claim a Grand Slam victory after winning Masters championships in Miami and Madrid. Alcaraz lost against Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinals of the French Open.

Alcaraz later qualified for Wimbledon‘s round of 16 but lost to Jannik Sinner. Alcaraz may not have won his first Grand Slam championship at the French Open when he had hoped, but it didn’t take him long to realize his goal.

Although Alcaraz is slated to compete for Spain in this week’s Davis Cup Finals group stage matches, he may decide to forgo the match and take some time to relax. Alcaraz has had a fantastic season, and he will undoubtedly strive to cap it off by winning the ATP Finals in Turin in November.
