With the way he plays, exhausting him is more or less the only option, because he is very aggressive.“Ymer said.” I think I executed the plan quite well. “

Alcaraz, 18, who was playing his third semifinals of the tour, the first on hard court, He could not continue in the fight for his second ATP title, nor could he take revenge for the defeat he had already suffered in the last Australian Open tournament against Ymer.

Despite the defeat, Alcaraz arrives at his first US Open full of morals and will have the first trial by fire in the opening round when he meets England’s Cameron Norrie, twenty-sixth seeded.
