New world number one Alcaraz captures US Open crown

Carlos Alcaraz is the new world number one after winning his maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open with a four-set victory over Casper Ruud.

The teenage sensation claimed his first major silverware at Flushing Meadows as he saw off Ruud 6-4, 2-6, 7-6(1), 6-3 in the battle for top spot in the ATP rankings.

The 19-year-old becomes the youngest player to reach the summit – and first teenager – as well as the fourth Spaniard after Carlos Moya, Juan Carlos Ferrero and Rafael Nadal.

Alcaraz is also only the second teenager to land the men’s singles title in the Big Apple, along with Pete Sampras 32 years earlier.

The stage was set for the youngest men’s singles final at a Slam since Lleyton Hewitt defeated David Nalbandian in the 2002 Wimbledon showpiece.

Alcaraz arrived in the Championship match off the back of three successive five-setters – saving match point against Jannik Sinner in the quarter-finals – becoming the first player to do so since Andre Agassi in 2005.

He broke to 15 in just the third game on the way to taking the opening set; meaning he has now won at least one in each of his last 65 matches.

The winner of the opener had gone on to lift the trophy in 26 of the 30 previous men’s singles finals in New York, but French Open runner-up Ruud responded well in the second.

The world number seven was aiming to make the biggest jump to the top of the ATP rankings in history, while he was the youngest man since Rafael Nadal (2008) to appear in multiple Slam finals during the same season.

Ruud rescued break point at 2-2 before converting his own in the following game, as he reeled off four in a row to level the final.

Both players exchanged early breaks before Alcaraz saved two set points to ensure a tie-break in the third, before seven straight points moved him to within one of glory.

Full of momentum, the Spaniard then broke for 4-2 in the fourth set as the exciting final entered its fourth hour.

By that point, Alcaraz had spent 23 hours and 21 minutes on court this fortnight; the most by any player during a single edition of a Grand Slam tournament, eclipsing the previous record set by Kevin Anderson at Wimbledon in 2018.

The third seed then recovered from 30-0 down to hold and although Ruud stayed alive with a love service game, a 14th ace of the match saw the teenage dream become a fairytale in New York.

Carlos Alcaraz and Casper Ruud will collide for the right to be crowned US Open champion for the first time on Sunday.

Ruud is far fresher than Alcaraz coming into this box office final as he has spent far less time on the court, especially in the last couple of days.

The pair have met twice in previous competition, with Alcaraz prevailing in both the 2021 Marbella Quarter-Finals and 2022 ATP Miami final.

En route to the final, Ruud has dispatched Kyle Edmund, Tim van Rijthoven, Tommy Paul, Corentin Moutet, Matteo Berrettini and Karen Khachanov.

During this run, Ruud needed to play only a five-setter match, which was in the third round against Paul.

At 23, the Norwegian is only the fourth youngest player to reach multiple Grand Slam finals in a season in the Open era.

Ruud holds a record of eight victories and two defeats in his last 10 final appearances. Furthermore, he has registered six victories over top-10 players in her career and two of those have come this year.

Alcaraz is just one victory away from becoming the youngest ever world number one. The 19-year-old had to play three consecutive five-setters against Marin Cilic, Jannik Sinner and Frances Tiafoe en route to his first major final.

The Spanish sensation is now looking to secure his first career Grand Slam title and his sixth title overall, with his previous best being Quarter-Final runs at the 2021 US Open and this year’s French Open.

Alcaraz has managed to get eight victories over top-10 players so far this year and has registered eight victories in his last nine matches on hard courts.

Our best prediction for this match is Over 36.5 Games at odds of 6/10 with Bet365.

Alcaraz v Ruud is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 9pm BST.

Carlos Alcaraz will play Casper Ruud in the US Open final after denying home favourite Frances Tiafoe in another five-set thriller at Flushing Meadows.

Alcaraz and Ruud will face off for the title in Sunday’s championship match at Arthur Ashe Stadium, with the winner also set to become the new world number one.

The Spaniard was taken to a deciding set for a third consecutive match, but held his nerve once more when it mattered most to outlast Tiafoe 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-1, 6-7(5), 6-3 after four hours and 19 minutes.

The 19-year-old becomes only the second teenager of the Open Era to reach the men’s singles final at Flushing Meadows; emulating the feat of Pete Sampras in 1990.

The youngest American US Open semi-finalist in 16 years, Tiafoe was looking to become the first male from the States to reach a Slam showpiece since Andy Roddick at Wimbledon in 2009.

The 22nd seed boasted an impressive 6-0 record in tie-breaks that remained unblemished as he drew first blood in a tight opener.

Fresh from his epic five-set thriller with Jannik Sinner in the quarter-finals, Alcaraz hit back in the second before winning 11 of the first 12 points as he dominated the third to turn the contest on its head.

The fourth set also went to the wire after Tiafoe saved match point at 5-4, before winning his eighth tie-break of the fortnight – the most by a player during a single edition of this event.

Into a decider and both players traded breaks early on, but Alcaraz grew stronger as the winning line got closer; winning four of the last five games to reach his first major final.

French Open runner-up Ruud stands in the way of a maiden title and becoming the youngest world number one in ATP history.

The Norwegian, who is looking to become the first player from his nation to top the ATP rankings, overcame Karen Khachanov 7-6(5), 6-2, 5-7, 6-2.

Ruud saw two set points go begging, but eventually took the opener following an epic 55-shot rally. He then hit 12 winners while making just two unforced errors during a dominant second to double his lead.

Appearing in his first Slam semi-final, Khachanov had lost each of his 18 previous matches against top-10 opponents – and 11 from 12 in majors.

The first player to drop at least a set in all five matches to reach the last four since Tim Henman 18 years earlier, the 27th seed dug deep with a crucial break in game 12 seeing him halve the deficit.

But Ruud was not to be denied 30 years on from Scandinavia’s most recent men’s finalist in the Big Apple, when Stefan Edberg triumphed.

US Open 2022 Day 12 Results

Friday September 9

Semi-Finals

Arthur Ashe Stadium
Casper Ruud (5) 7-6(5), 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 Karen Khachanov (27)
Carlos Alcaraz (3) 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-1, 6-7(5), 6-3 Frances Tiafoe (22)

Carlos Alcaraz and Frances Tiafoe will go head-to-head in the second Semi-Final of the 2022 US Open on Friday.

Alcaraz defeated Jannik Sinner in a five-set thriller in the Quarter-Finals, in what was arguably the best match of the season so far.

The Spaniard has not dropped a single set in his first three matches in Flushing Meadows last week. However, he had to play two consecutive five-setters in the previous two rounds.

This edition was Alcaraz’s only second main-draw appearance at the US Open and he has now become the youngest semi-finalist at the US Open since Pete Sampras back in 1990.

Alcaraz holds the record for the most matches won on the main tour in these first nine months of the year. In addition, he lifted two Masters and two ATP 500 titles so far in 2022, and he is just two victories away from his first Grand Slam title.

On the other hand, Tiafoe dispatched Andrey Rublev in straight sets in the Quarter-Finals to become the first American male player to reach the semis at the US Open since Andy Roddick in 2006.

Tiafoe has had an amazing US Open campaign so far, having dropped just one set in his five matches. During this impressive run, he also stunned Rafael Nadal with a four-set victory in the round of 16.

In order to stand a chance against Alcaraz, Tiafoe will need to rely heavily on his serve. Our prediction is Over 37.5 Games at odds of 7/10 with Bet365.

Alcaraz v Tiafoe is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 12am BST.

Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner will meet for the third time in two months in the Quarter-Finals of the 2022 US Open on Wednesday.

Alcaraz did not drop a set in his first three matches at the US Open, brushing aside Sebastian Baez, Federico Coria and Jenson Brooksby. Then, he had to face his biggest test of the week as he needed 3 hours and 56 minutes to defeat Marin Cilic in five sets in a Fourth Round epic.

Alcaraz’s sole title on hard courts in 2022 was at the Miami Open – where he dropped just one set in six matches.

The Spaniard has lost both meetings against Sinner in 2022, 3-1 at Wimbledon and 2-1 at Umag.

Sinner rolled into the Quarter-Finals of the US Open with wins over Daniel Altmaier, Christopher Eubanks, Brandon Nakashima and Ilya Ivashka. Although he had to play against accessible opponents, he was involved in two five-setters already. The first one was against Altmaier in the opening round and then he was taken to the distance by Ivashka in the previous round.

Sinner is yet to win a tournament on hard courts this year, with his best results being at the Australian Open where he reached the quarter-finals. Prior to the US Open, Sinner won title at Umag where he defeated Alcaraz in three sets in the final.

Our top tip for this tight contest is Over 3.5 Sets at odds of 54/100 with Bet365.

Sinner v Alcaraz is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 1.30am BST.

Rafael Nadal marks his US Open return when he faces Australian qualifier Rinky Hijikata at Flushing Meadows on Tuesday.

The 22-time major champion is back in New York for the first time since 2019, when he claimed his fourth title on Arthur Ashe.

Nadal also returns in a Grand Slam tournament, having withdrawn from his scheduled Wimbledon semi-final with Nick Kyrgios due to an abdominal injury.

The Spaniard, who has already captured the Australian Open and French Open crowns, now looks to extend his perfect record in majors this year, having gone 19-0 so far.

And the 36-year-old is aiming to become only the fourth male player of the Open Era to triumph five times in the Big Apple after Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer.

Although, he suffered a first-round exit in Cincinnati earlier this month, and that will encourage Slam main-draw debutant Hijikata in his quest to claim an incredible scalp.

Nadal’s compatriot Carlos Alcaraz is targeting another strong run in the Big Apple, where he made his breakthrough by reaching the quarter-finals last year.

The third seed, who has four titles to his name this season, takes on Argentina’s Sebastian Baez, while Wimbledon semi-finalist Cameron Norrie goes up against Benoit Paire.

Top seed Iga Swiatek begins her quest for a seventh trophy of a remarkable year with a tricky test against world number 56 Jasmine Paolini.

Swiatek embarked on incredible 37-match unbeaten streak that was ended at Wimbledon by Alize Cornet, who is set to appear in a record-breaking 63rd consecutive Grand Slam.

The Frenchwoman would love to mark the occasion by abruptly ended the title defence of reigning champion Emma Raducanu, who looks to successfully retain the crown she won in fairytale fashion 12 months ago.

Elsewhere, two-time champion Naomi Osaka takes on home favourite Danielle Collins, while Venus Williams’ 91st major appearance begins against Alison Van Uytvanck.

Marin Cilic – a winner here in 2014 – plays Maximilian Marterer, as Cincinnati champion Borna Coric looks to build on that momentum against Enzo Couacaud.

Carlos Alcaraz will take on Sebastian Baez in the opening round of the 2022 US Open in New York on Tuesday.

Alcaraz has been struggling for consistency over the past month, winning six and losing four of his last ten matches on clay and hard courts. He recently reached the Quarter-Finals in Cincinnati – where he lost to Cameron Norrie in three sets.

Alcaraz made his debut at the US Open last year and unfortunately was forced to retire from his Quarter-Final match against Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Although he has not been at its best over the past few months, Alcaraz did well to reach at least the Quarter-Final stage of all three American hard court tournaments he entered this year.

Baez reached the final in Bastad on clay a month and a half ago but has failed to win a single match since then. The Argentine has suffered back-to-back eliminations in the opening rounds of Hamburg, Umag, Washington, Montreal, and Cincinnati. Furthermore, he has failed to win a single set in the previous three matches, all of them on hard courts.

Baez has reached the second round in all three Grand Slams this year, but he hasn’t played against a top five player in any of those matches.

Our prediction for this clash is Under 29.5 Games at odds of 3/4 with Bet365.

Baez v Alcaraz is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 5pm BST.

Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz will square off in the Fourth Round of Wimbledon 2022 on Sunday.

Sinner has had a tough time this year as he has been struggling with knee issues, was infected with Coronavirus, and also had to change his coaching team. However, he managed to overcome all these and register 30 victories so far in 2022.

The young Italian did well to beat Stanislas Wawrinka and Mikael Ymer in four sets in the first two rounds at Wimbledon before winning in straight sets against John Isner in the previous round. He had not won a single match on Wimbledon grass before beating Wawrinka a couple of days ago.

Sinner’s record in the round of 16 in Grand Slams isn’t great as he has lost three of his five matches at this stage of the competition.

Alcaraz has been one of the best male players in the circuit this year. He has won four titles on different surfaces so far this year, including the Rio Open, Miami Masters, Barcelona Open, and Madrid Masters.

The Spaniard has survived a huge scare against Jan-Lennard Struff in the opening round before winning that clash in five sets. However, he got better in the previous two rounds as he beat Tallon Griekspoor and Oscar Otte without dropping a single set in the process.

Alcaraz has played only two matches on grass in his career before 2022, but he is now looking pretty dangerous on this surface after his recent two matches.

Our prediction for this clash is Over 36.5 Games with Bet365.

Sinner v Alcaraz is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 3pm BST.

Alexander Zverev will take on emerging sensation Carlos Alcaraz in the Quarter-Finals of the 2022 French Open on Tuesday.

Zverev has once again survived a big scare in the round of 16 as he was heavily tested by Zapata Miralles. The Spaniard had more break point chances than Zverev and had several opportunities to win at least two sets, but wasn’t able to capitalize.

Zverev had to battle through his previous three matches at Roland Garros, despite winning the most recent two in straight sets. The German has already played three tie-breakers throughout the tournament and he unexpectedly dropped two sets against Baez in the second round.

Zverev was one of the best players in the ATP circuit last year, but he hasn’t been performing anywhere near that level in 2022.

On the contrary, Alcaraz extended his winning streak to 14 matches after his comfortable 3-0 victory over Khachanov in the Round of 16. Alcaraz has only dropped two sets in four matches on Parisian clay so far, which were against compatriot Ramos in the second round.

With his victory over Khachanov, Alcaraz became the youngest player to reach quarterfinal appearances in more than one Grand Slam since Andrei Medvedev back in 1994.

Alcaraz established himself as the main challenger to Djokovic and Nadal, especially after beating both of them recently.

Our prediction for this match is Over 3.5 Sets at odds of 3/4 with Bet365.

Zverev v Alcaraz is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 2.00 pm BST.

In-form Carlos Alcaraz will take on Karen Khachanov in the 4th round of the French Open 2022 on Sunday at 7.45pm (UK Time).

This is the first time in two months that Karen Khachanov manages to link three consecutive wins on the main tour. The Russian has played against two mediocre opponents in the first two rounds on Parisian clay, but he dropped a set against each of them – Borges in the first round and Dellien in the second.

However, he raised his gameplay in the third round when he ended last week’s Lyon champion Norrie’s six-match-winning run.

The worrying news is that Khachanov has lost three of his last four matches at this stage of the French Open. However, he did well to reach the quarterfinals in one of these attempts.

On the contrary, Carlos Alcaraz is now on a 13-match winning streak on clay courts following a comfortable 3-0 victory over Korda in the previous round of the French Open 2022.

Alcaraz has won titles in Barcelona and Madrid over the past month and he is now one match away from a quarter-final appearance at the French Open. This is the first time the talented Spaniard plays in the Round of 16 at the French Open, but he should feel confident after his recent performances.

Our prediction is Under 3.5 Sets at odds of 8/11 with Bet365.

Khachanov v Alcaraz is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 19.45 pm BST.
