Tennis, Alcaraz champion in the Madrid Masters 1000: Zverev dominated in the final

Devastating Carlos Alcaraz. Really devastating. After Nadal and Djokovic, the 19-year-old Spaniard completes the task with a sensational 6-3 6-1 victory over Alexander Zverev in the Madrid Masters 1000 final. Tiredness, waste, pressure. Totally unknown topics for the new phenomenon of the world racket that with a show of force at times truly humiliating for his opponent, has swept the resistance of the world number 3 with an ease simply out of the ordinary.

The match, which did not exist from the point of view of the tennis match, was gone in just over an hour. An hour where Alcaraz literally kicked Zverev, forced into a defense from which he never came out. The German has collected the one-two of Alcaraz totally helpless, were those great deep right hands or, even today, lethal short balls. A match in which Zverev, who today played the 30th final of his career -the tenth at the Masters 1000 level-, was the supporting actor. There is really nothing more to add to the news, if not the aggravating factor, for the German, of not having shown signs of life, but of having given it a little higher up in the final, tripping over a few double faults that made him the score even more brutal.

Alcaraz phenomenon! Epic match, even defeated Djokovic, is definitive


In short, Alcaraz completed the work and did it in a way that is not trivial at all. He wants to because he came to this final with more than 10 hours of tennis on the court this week; he wants because of the size of the game he managed to make with an opponent, data in hand, who is No. 3 in the world.

The sky is the limitsays the English proverb. Perfect for indicate where Alcaraz will arrive: to date, impossible to know. A player capable of winning 2 of the 4 Masters 1000 of the season, reaching the semifinal in Indian Wells, triumphing in the back to back Barcelona and Madrid and to impress in all aspects: be those of the game or those of the head. Alcaraz really has it all, if his physique allows it, to start making the law in the world of the racket of the future.

And not in vain, starting tomorrow, Alcaraz will be number 6 in the world. But the feeling is that this number is still false.. 2, or rather his Career ranking, is already more believable. If not, at this moment, indicating it as the 1, that is, as the “to beat”, as Zverev declared at the end of the game, could be correct. Defeating Carlos Alcaraz these days, in fact, was not possible for either Nadal or Djokovic. The little boy, in short, is really ready. Paris is the stage where all the rest of the world, that is, the conventionalyou will get to know him.
