GAME, SET AND MATCH! Now, if with an open serve closes the match Carlos Alcaraz. 

 

A first set where it was difficult for Alcaraz to take advantage of the break balls against Gasquet, who held him. Finally the player from Murcia won in the tie break. That gave him confidence in the second set and in the third set, where he was far superior. Although it cost him to close it, but in his fifth match ball he did it.

This is the case of Tsitsipas, last year's finalist, who lost the first set against Belgian Zizou Bergs, while the Greek turned it around to take the match. Also Daniil Medvedev, world number 3, who struggled against 22-year-old Frenchman Atmane, who won the first set.

Then he played in Auckland where he was eliminated in the first round. Before his debut at the Australian Open he played an exhibition match against the Australian Marc Polmans, where the French player won in two sets.

News - Carlos Alcaraz

Good 2023 for Carlos Alcaraz at the age of 20 despite his hesitant finish. He has 65 wins, 12 losses and six titles.

 

He reached the Roland Garros semifinals where cramps prevented him from finishing the match with competitive rhythm against Novak Djokovic. After that he won the ATP London and took revenge on the Serbian by lifting the Wimbledon in a historic final. He was surprised in his start on the hard court after losing in the quarterfinals against the American Paul. In Cincinnati he reached the final, but again ran into Novak Djokovic. In the last Grand Slam of the year, the US Open, he lost in the semifinals against Daniil Medvedev and could not retain the title. He started the Asian tour falling in the semifinals against the Italian Sinner at the China Open and in Shanghai he lost in the round of 16 against Dmitrov. He did not fare much better at the Paris Masters 1000, as in his first match he lost to the Russian, Safiullin. Despite his bad start in the ATP Finals, he reached the semifinals, but there he ran into the world number 1 and left him out. 

 

He is looking for a good 2024 and how not to dream of finishing at the top of the ATP ranking. Although he will have great opponents. This will be the third time he plays the Australian Open, after being absent last year. In 2021 he reached the second round and in 2022 he was eliminated in the third round. In this edition he will be looking to take a step forward.
