Carlos Alcaraz wins US Open for 1st Slam title, highest ranking

NEW YORK (Associated Press) – As Carlos Alcaraz was knocked out of his first Grand Slam final at the age of 19, he hit the fists of fans leaning on a railing along the road to Arthur Ashe Stadium. Moments later, after tossing the coin, Alcaraz switched to running back to the baseline to warm up, until he was brought back to the net by the chair umpire for the usual pre-match photos.

The karaz is imbued with boundless enthusiasm and energy, not to mention skill, speed and stamina. He is now the US Open champion and number one player in men’s tennis.

Using his uncommon combination of moxie and maturity, Alcaraz beat Casper Ruud 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (1), 6-3 on Sunday to win the trophy at Flushing Meadows and become the youngest player to lead the ATP ratings.

“Well, that’s something I’ve dreamed about since I was a kid,” said Alcaraz, who people of a certain age might still consider a kid. “It’s something I’ve really worked hard for. It’s hard to talk now. So many feelings.”

Alcaraz has already attracted a lot of attention as someone who is considered the next big thing in a sport that has been dominated for decades by Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

The Spaniard sang choruses of “Olé, Olé, Olé! Carlos!” reverberating from the square’s enclosed ceiling – and the château often urged onlookers to raise their voice. There were two magic dots that elicited applause while standing, including one that Alcaraz lost with the laser to a forehand while sprinting while he ended up on his stomach.

He showed signs of fatigue only briefly from having to pass three straight fives in the three rounds just before the final; No one has gone that hard on their way to the title in New York in 30 years.
