On his way, if he passes the first screen, Hubert Hurkacz, fifth seed, Matteo Berrettini, third, and Alexander Zverev would be ranked., second, before a hypothetical final that would be very morbid to arrive, against the first, Stefanos Tsitsipas, whom he won in the third round of the last US Open and on Friday night in the match for the trophy of an exhibition in Vienna , in which he also beat Feliciano López and Christian Garín in matches played in the best of three tie-breaks. “A really great experience. The people were magnificent, plus the music during the games, it was something completely different,” said Charly.
Alcaraz attracted a lot of attention at the Red Bull Bassline, played at the Wiener Stadhalle in the Austrian capital, and showed again that on a good day. He will also debut with the good news of his inclusion in the Spanish Davis Cup team that will play from November 25 to December 5. Carlos will debut in a highly prestigious competition and with a team that will not be able to count on Rafa Nadal this year to defend the title won in 2019.
