Alcaraz already has a price: he will play his first ATP finals
Victory of Carlos Alcaraz against Jannik Sinner in the quarterfinals of the US Open He already has an immediate price for the Murcian tennis player. After making sure to add 720 points as a US Open semi-finalist, Carlos Alcaraz stamped his ticket for the Nitto ATP Finals in Turin this morning, in which the eight best tennis players of the season will compete.
In this way, Alcaraz becomes the second mathematically ranked tennis player for the tournament after Rafa Nadal also managed to seal his ticket to the Nitto ATP Finals at the US Open, although the Spaniard and Novak Djokovic already have their presence assured as champions of the Australian Open and Roland Garros in the case of Nadal, and Wimbledon in the case of the Serb. Alcaraz also manages to realize one of the dreams that had been set at the start of the season in Australia and which had already set itself as a firm objective after the Hamburg tournament.
These will be the first Nitto ATP Finals for Alcaraz, who last year already won the title at the NextGen ATP Finals in Milan, and is seeing how this great year is being rewarded in which he is currently second in the Race to Turin with 5,180 points, after Rafa Nadal’s 5810, in a year in which he won the Miami Masters 1000 and the Mutua Madrid Open and the Rio de Janeiro ATP 500 and the Banc Sabadell Barcelona Open.
Moreover, with this classification Alcaraz will become the youngest tennis player to play the tournament since Ukraine’s Andrei Medvedev in 1993 as Rafa Nadal reached his ranking in 2005 but ultimately did not play the tournament. Now Alcaraz has his first chance to become a “teacher” at just 19 years old
