Carlos Alcaraz Prediction
World No. 4 Carlos Alcaraz will square off against home favorite Frances Tiafoe in the semifinals of the 2022 US Open on Friday.
Following wins over Sebastian Baez, Federico Coria, Jenson Brooksby and Marin Cilic, Alcaraz was up against Jannik Sinner in the quarterfinals.
He started the match by going up a break to lead 2-0. Sinner responded by winning the next three games, but the teenager ran away with the next four to bag the opener.
The Italian led 3-1 in the second set, but his younger opponent clawed his way back into the match to get back on serve.
The Italian then saved four set points as he served to stay in the match at 6-5 and clinched the set in the tie-break.
Alcaraz led by a break in the third set and served for the set at 6-5, but was unable to close it out. Sinner then played a brilliant tie-break, winning seven straight points to take the set and further consolidate his lead.
Tiafoe leads Alcaraz 1-0 in the head-to-head. He won their previous encounter at the 2021 Barcelona Open in straight sets.
The Spaniard was tested thoroughly in the previous round, but dug deep to overcome his opponent. He also displayed tremendous mental fortitude after wasting leads in sets two and three, before coming down from a break in the fourth and fifth sets. Tiafoe, on the other hand, has dropped only one set in the tournament so far.
The American hit 18 aces and finished with 46 winners and 38 unforced errors in his quarterfinal match. While Alcaraz’s serving numbers pale in comparison, he blasted 58 winners while committing 38 unforced errors.
Carlos Alcaraz Garfia is the full name of Carlos Alcaraz, Spanish professional tennis player.
Carlos Alcaraz is an all-court, all-round tennis player, but primarily employs an aggressive baseline style of play, with an emphasis on a high winner count from his forehand, typically his most reliable and potent shot.
He can either hit his forehand flat and fast for winners from every court position, or add a great amount of topspin and margin over the net.
He also possesses a well-rounded and more flat and lower net-clearance backhand groundstroke that he is able to redirect down the line for clean winners.
His greatly-disguised drop shot is key to his game, as he often combines the heaviness of his groundstrokes that pushes his opponents back into the court into a defensive position, with a drop shot that is often too well-placed and disguised to deal with.
Alcaraz is sponsored by Nike for clothing and shoes, and by Babolat for racquets, using the Babolat Pure Aero VS racquet.
In January 2022, he became a brand ambassador for Rolex.
Carlos Alcaraz has so far in his short career earned $863,798 in career prize money and his brand deals have combined together to raise his net worth at an estimated $2 million.
