“It’s difficult to find a person who can…,” said Carlos Alcaraz.

Again, Carlos Alcaraz did it. On the Brazilian clay, the unexpected Spanish tennis player won his second match of the week to go to the Rio Open 2023 quarterfinals. The tournament’s top seed and world number two had to fight hard to defeat Italian Fabio Fognini by scores of 6-7, 6-2, and 6-4.

After dropping the first set in a tiebreak, Alcaraz settled in and gave in to a Fognini who dropped nine of the following 11 “games.” He not only conceded in the second inning but also got off to a bad start in the third. To a certain extent, it appeared as though the Murcian would win easily, but the Italian responded, got a break, and came very near to matching the cards.

The winner of the Serbian match between Dusan Lajovic and Laslo Djere ultimately earned a place to the next round, where he will await the victor. Overall, the Spanish tennis players had a successful day at the Rio Open.

Together with Carlitos, Albert Ramos-Violas (7) and Bernabé Zapata Miralles also advanced to the following round by eliminating the Argentine Francisco Cerndolo (4) and Colombian Daniel Galán, respectively.

Pedro Martnez Portero, an Iberian player, was swept by the Chilean Nicolás Jarry with a double 2-6 and was unable to prevail. Sebatián Báez of Argentina defeated Juan Pablo Varillas of Peru in another match of the day, 7-5, 7-6.

This has been going on in the ATP 500 of Brazil throughout the day, with Carlos Alcaraz still in contention. Who do you believe will be the world’s #2 threat in the 2023 Rio Open?

Alcaraz had a fantastic season the previous year.

The most well-known tennis player on the rise is perhaps Carlos Alcaraz, who has already achieved great success.

“Never remaining in one location is complicated. If you’re always in different parts of the world, it’s difficult to find someone who you can share things with, according to Alcaraz. My father handles it, I suppose.

Although I am still relatively young and have my fancies, I am quite natural, ordinary, and humble. I don’t really think much about automobiles and brands. If there’s something I like, I attempt to acquire it, but ultimately, my father handles everything,” he continued.

“You need to anticipate where the other player will send the ball, go ahead of him, and try to do something that will annoy him. I thus play it a lot.
