Carlos Alcaraz, with the victory at the Miami Open in two sets against Casper Ruud, won his first 1000 career as well as his third ATP title. The Spanish tennis player is experiencing a moment of incredible form which allowed him to win, at the beginning of the season, first the Rio 500 on clay and now his first Masters 1000 in Florida.
Clear victory in two sets 7-5, 6-4 that allow the 18-year-old Murciano to rise to eleventh position in the world ranking, bypassing, among other things, the Italian Jannik Sinner. There have been many praises, after yesterday's victory, towards the Spanish champion.
Among these came a tweet that certainly pleased Carlos Alcaraz very much since it bears the signature of his childhood idol Rafael Nadal. The twenty-one-time slam winner, who finds himself having to recover from yet another injury in his career, congratulated his young countryman: "Many congratulations Carlitos on your historic triumph in Miami.
The first of many to come, for sure!" Incidentally, the 2022 Australian Open winner also congratulated Miami Open finalist Casper Ruud: "And congratulations Casper Ruud on this fantastic tournament and achievement.
Great swing! See you at the Rafa Nadal Academy."
Not only Rafael Nadal, other tweets arrive
Nadal was not the only one to say praise to Alcaraz, other tennis players on twitter have also done so. Paula Badosa wrote: "Impressive.
impressive. Congratulations on what you have achieved, but most of all on what you have transmitted. Spain cannot have a better heir than you. Thank you for the values and for the tennis you transmit and which we constantly enjoy.
You were born to shine ”. Even the Argentine Diego Schwartzman wanted to write a tweet for the tennis player born in Murcia “Carlitosssssssssss !!!! What a person, what a player, what a team.
It's the tennis party, happy for him.
It is not easy to find a champion where everyone is happy for his victory " In short, many and fair awards for the young Spanish phenomenon who will certainly also be one of the protagonists of the upcoming season on clay.
Carlos Alcaraz has won the Miami Open 2022, his first ATP Masters 1000 ever, rewriting the history of tennis.
The 18-year-old Spanish talent beat Casper Ruud in the final at the Florida event and became the first Spanish tennis player in history to win the Miami Masters 1000. It ends with the result of 7-5 6-4 and Alcaraz is more and more in the history of tennis.
Nadal never succeeded, who in the past went one step closer to victory in the match against Federer (the Swiss was down 2-0 and won in five sets). This and not just for this guy who, day after day, destroys all the records that pass in front of him.
Third in the Race and in the Top 10 of the youngest tennis players ever to win a 1000, shortly after Rafa and in front of legends such as Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer. The tennis player is the third ever to win a Masters 1000 behind only Michael Chang and Rafael Nadal, a player whose footsteps he is retracing step by step.
