Carlos Alcaraz Beats Casper Ruud In The US Open Final To Win His First Grand Slam At 19

Carlos Alcaraz was clear about his goal throughout this historic season: he was here to win grand slams. This was true even though he was a teenager in his second full year on the ATP tour. Not in the distant future, not once he had a little more experience, but right now. He was all set.

He has consistently followed through on his promises, and on Sunday night, he completed the wild and exciting journey to win his first grand slam title by withstanding a fierce assault from Casper Ruud and continuing with his shotmaking and athleticism. He defeated his Norwegian opponent by scores of 6-4, 2-6, 7-6, and 6-3 to win the US Open and earn his maiden grand slam title.

He has spent many time portion of the last five years setting age records, and he is about to set the most spectacular record of them all—one that might last for a very long time. Carlos Alcarazwill become the youngest player in ATP history to accomplish the feat when he ascends to the top spot on Monday for the first time in his career. The Spaniard, who is more than a year younger than the previous record-holder, Lleyton Hewitt, is the first teenage No. 1 in the history of the men’s game at 19 years and four months.
