Carlos Alcaraz also has unfavorable information

The new leader in the globe is Carlos Alcaraz. The Spanish tennis player faced Casper Ruud in the US Open final with a dual goal in mind for both of them: to win his maiden Slam championship and to rise to the top of the rankings.

The young Iberian, who has amassed everything, is triumphant and breaking records. He is the second adolescent to win the US Open (during the Open era) after Pete Sampras in 1990, making him the youngest winner of a Grand Slam tournament since Rafael Nadal in 2005.

Records have been kept regarding both the top of the ranking and the Slam ball. At the age of 19, 4 months, and 7 days, Carlos Alcaraz became the tennis player to hold the top ranking at the youngest age. The dominance of Lleyton Hewitt, who at the age of 20 years, 8 months, and 23 days rose to the top of the global rankings in 2001, has been shattered.

The tennis star from Spain, who is accustomed to destroying venues, also established a bad record.

By how many points did he pass the top spot?

Carlos Alcaraz reached the top of the rankings with 6740 points, becoming the tennis player with the fewest points since 2009 to do it.

He is listed after Daniil Medvedev, who held the top spot in the world with 6885 suns. They are the only two players in the last thirteen years to have topped the rankings with fewer than 7,000 points.

The Fab Four have dominated the top of the leaderboard in recent years. Rafael Nadal earned the top spot among them with the fewest points: 7645 in 2017. With a small difference, Andy Murray comes in second with 7750 points.

The final two players, on the other hand, surpassed 8000 points to take the top spot. The year 2018 marked Novak Djokovic‘s lowest threshold; in November, the Serbian passed the Spaniard and reclaimed the top spot. Roger Federer, who was ranked number one in the same year but never with less than 8670 points, concludes.
