The young Spaniard, who has won the US Open, is (now) ranked number one in world tennis despite just being 19 years old. A significant occurrence that has been anticipated for a long time. Specifics are provided below in the table.
Carlos Alcaraz, at the end of suspense and out of breath, emerged victorious 6-4, 2-6, 7-6 (7/1), 6-3 of a confrontation long undetermined with the Norwegian Casper Ruud. The match was played on the night of Sunday to Monday. He will be the youngest player to ever hold the position of world No. 1, and he will do so while sitting atop the tennis rankings for the entire world.
1 Alcaraz accomplishes a remarkable (and unmatched) double blow by winning its first title in a Grand Slam competition and rising to the position of world number one. At the age of 19, Alcaraz becomes the youngest player in the history of the men’s singles rankings to ascend to the top spot (in August 1973). He makes the Australian Lleyton Hewitt history books obsolete (20 years and 9 months in 2001). When they were at the top of the world rankings, performed better than Marat Safin (20 years and 10 months in 2000) or John McEnroe (21 years and 1 month in 1980). During an exciting marathon encounter against Jannik Sinner in the quarter-finals, the Spaniard avoided losing the match by a single point on his way to winning the championship in New York. After a tournament in which he will have defeated only a player ranked in the top ten, he secured his spot in the Master’s competition, making him the youngest player to compete in the tournament since Andre Medvedev in 1993. In the conclusion.
2.5 when expressed in millions of euros. The sum of money that comes along with winning the United States Open.
After Carlos Moya (in 1999), Juan Carlos Ferrero (his coach, in 2003), and Rafael Nadal, this makes Rafael Nadal the fourth Spaniard to attain the top spot in the global rankings (in 2008). As in the cases of Carlos Moya (March 1999), Andre Agassi (July 1999), and Pete Sampras (2000), he climbed the rankings to go immediately from 4e (he was seeded #3 in New York) to #1 in the world. He did this in the same manner.
The young Spaniard’s list includes a total of six different titles.
This coming Monday, he defeats Danill Medvedev and establishes himself as the top 28 players in the world.
He won the United States Open, becoming the 57th player (since the Open era began) to become the champion of a major tournament.
2018 Was a banner year for him in his professional debut.
2022 Became, this year, the youngest player to beat Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, and he did so on clay, on the way to winning the Masters 1000 tournament in Madrid. He was also the first player to accomplish this feat.
