Alcaraz, a Superman whose kryptonite is difficult to find

MURCIA. Carlos Alcaraz Garfiawho in the Masters 1,000 Mutua Madrid Open conquered the title beating three of the top four tennis players in the world ranking – the Serbian Novak Djokovic, number 1; the German alexander zverev, 3; and the also Spanish Rafael Nadal4-, continues to tear down walls and their 19 years fulfilled on May 5 is behaving like a true Superman whose cryptonit is difficult to finda.

Alcaraz, who currently occupies the sixth place in the international ranking and whom practically everyone points to as the future dominator of the circuit and not in too longwas able to beat Nadal (6-2, 1-6 and 6-3) and Zverev (6-3 and 6-1) when he had lost the two matches he had played against each of them to date – against against the Majorcan in the second round of the 2021 Mutua Madrid Open (6-1 and 6-2) and in the semifinals of the Miami Masters 1,000 (4-6, 6-4 and 3-6) and against the German in the premiere of the ATP 500 in Acapulco (3-6 and 3-6) and in the semifinals of Vienna (3-6 and 1-6).

Between the quarterfinals played against Manacor and the final won against Hamburg, Alcaraz beat Djokovic in the semifinals in Madrid in what was his first duel against a world number 1 (6-7 (5), 7-5 and 7-6 (5)).

Also, to the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, who ranks fifth on the ATP list, has beaten him all three times they have met. It was in the third round of the 2021 United States Open by 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (2), 0-6 and 7-6 (5) and, already this year, by 7-5 and 6 -3 in the round of 16 in Miami and 6-4, 5-7 and 6-2 in the quarterfinals of the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell-Conde de Godó Trophy, which was also won by the Murcian,

the russian Daniel Medvedev, second in the ranking, is the only one of the players who appear ahead of Alcaraz that the latter has not yet defeated. The precedent between them occurred in the second round of Wimbledon on July 1, 2021 and the one from Moscow clearly beat the one from El Palmar 4-6, 1-6 and 2-6 although at that time Alcaraz was 75th in the world.

So your numbers are six victories and five defeats in the duels against the players that today he has above.

at the highest level -without counting the ATP Challengers or the ITF and neither the qualifying rounds-, Carlitos’ background is 61 wins and 21 losseswith a spectacular 28-3 this season.

Obviously, since he is a professional, the Murcian has negative baggage against some rivals, having faced most of them only once.

The only one who has beaten him twice in two clashes is the Swedish Mikael Ymerwho at 23 years old is 98 in the world but who beat him last year in the semifinals of the ATP 250 in Winston Salem 5-7, 3-6 and in the second round of the Australian Open 6-2, 4 -6, 4-6 and 6-7 (5).

He has not beaten a few players he has faced yet and to that list, Ymer, must be added 9 other tennis players who beat the Murcian in their only matchup on the ATP World Tour to date. are the french Hugo Gastonthe canadian Felix Auger Aliassimethe Italian Lorenzo Sonegothe Austrian Alexander Erlerthe German Jan-Lennard Struffthe American Frances Tiafoefinnish Emil Ruusuvuorithe Argentinian Federico Coria and the brazilian Thiago Monteiro.

The Pupil of Juan Carlos Ferrero has won and lost against the American sebastian kordathe Italian Matteo Berrettinithe British Andy Murraythe Croatian Marin Cilic and the also Spanish James Munar.
