Carlos Alcaraz, for all six titles in six finals


Carlos Alcaraz19 years old and number 6 in the world, will face this Sunday (3:00 pm) for the first time Lorenzo Musetti20th and 62nd in the rankings, with the challenge of following his clean trajectory in his ATP finals: in the land of Hamburg (Germany) aspires to ‘six out of six’.

“What has been instilled in me since I was little is that the finals are not played, but rather won. You have to go for them. If it comes out, fine and, if not, also because you left with the feeling that you have gone for her,” Alcaraz said in April, when he graced his entry into the world top-10 by defeating his friend Pablo Carreño in the final of Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell-Conde de Godó Trophy.

With such an ambitious mindset, Alcaraz not only won his five ATP finals, also with authority, but he did not drop a set in all of them despite having already played two in this year’s category. Masters 1,000 (Miami, Madrid) and two more in 500 tournament (Rio de Janeiro, Barcelona).

Whatever he does today in Hamburg, the player from Murcia will debut his condition as a new top-5 on Monday, another step in a rise that all indications suggest will sooner or later lead to the no. 1, the fourth in Spanish tennis then. Carlos Moya, John Charles Ferrero (his current coach) and Rafael Nadal.

Richard Gasquet (Umag’2021), Diego Schwartzmann (River), Casper Ruud (miami), Pablo Carreno (Barcelona) and Alexander Zverev (Madrid) the five victims of Alcaraz in the finals, a list that can also be added Sebastian Kordawho conceded last year against Murcia in the final of Masters ‘Next Gen’a competition not included in official ATP statistics.
