Alcaraz was waiting for a Dimitrov hit, but he already knew who the real danger was before the final


This Tuesday, Carlos Alcaraz sealed his place in the quarterfinals of the Miami Open. The Murcian again showed he is in great form and swept Lorenzo Musetti 6-3, 6-3 in less than an hour and a half in a match he dominated from start to finish.

Now waiting for him in the penultimate round is Grigor Dimitrov (n.12), who came back from Hubert Hurkacz (n.9) 3-6, 6-3 and 7-6(3) in two hours and 41 minutes. Undoubtedly, the Bulgarian suffered more than the Spaniard, and even saw physical problems in the third set tiebreak.

In addition, the champion of Wimbledon dominates the previous ones between the two (3-1), although Dimitrov won his last match (round of 16 in Shanghai in 2023).

Therefore, Alcaraz’s favoritism seems to be evident in the match they will play this Thursday. He should be more concerned about his next opponent, which everyone is suggesting is Alexander Zverev.

The German gave a tennis recital last night to quickly defeat Karen Khachanov 6-1, 6-4 and stay alive in the tournament without giving up a set.

Although the last confrontation between the two, two weeks ago in Indian Wells, fell to Alcaraz’s side, Zverev has been one of the rivals that has caused him the most problems in recent times.

He is the opponent who has defeated him the most times on the circuit (five), for four victories for the Murcian.

Before Indian Wells, the last two times they met ended in victory for Zverev: in the quarterfinals of the last Australian Open and in the group stage of the 2023 ATP Finals.
