four titles (Rio de Janeiro, Miami, Barcelona, ​​​​​​Madrid) and another ending (Hamburg) outstanding season of Alcaraz, since last Monday the second youngest tennis player to reach the world top-5 in the 21st century, surpassed only by Nadal. Alcaraz has 26 wins this year and only three losses on clay for a 41-6 record on all surfaces.

Alexander Zverevin Roland Garros, is the only rival to beat Carlos this year in the quarterfinals, with the Murcian now having a 7-1 statistic. Left-handed Bagnis, 32, never bothered him, on the contrary, Alcaraz was a storm in the first set until he rounded off the ‘donut’ and surrendered only 12 points to the Argentine.

Another break in the opening game of the second set put the Spaniard on the path to victory, losing his first game after scoring the first eight (6-0, 2-0). Bagnis showed a little more fight, but Alcaraz’s ball speed was on another level. The Murcian controlled the game at all times before the attentive gaze of an unsuspecting spectator, the Croatian. Goran Ivanisevicthe coach of Novak Djokovicenjoys tennis in his country.

Alcaraz will be surrounded by Italians in the penultimate round of the Croatian tournament, as Jannik Sinner (10th) and Frank Agamemnon (136th) will star in the other semifinal. Facing two tennis players outside the top-100 and coming from the previous stage, Alcaraz and Sinner, the first two seeds, will be the clear favorites to meet in Sunday’s final. Sinner beat Espanyol in the quarterfinals Roberto Carballes by 6-4 and 7-6 (5).

If Alcaraz plays in his seventh semifinal of the year this Saturday, Sinner will be the first after a jinx in 2022 in the quarterfinal round: six losses in six games against Tsitsipas (Australia), Hurkacz (Dubai), Cerúndolo (Miami ), Zverev (Monte Carlo), Tsitsipas (Rome) and Djokovic (Wimbledon), who eliminated him in five sets after defeating Alcaraz in the round of 16.

The Italian has not reached a semifinal since October 2021, when he also fell in that tie against Tiafoe. If Carlos and Jannik meet predictions, both will play for the title with draws in their previous encounters (1-1), although none of those matches were on clay.
