Vs Carlos Alcaraz

Each came into the US Open quarterfinals among the top five in match wins in 2022, the Spaniard Alcaraz with a tour-best 48 (and an ATP-leading four titles), the Italian Sinner with 42.

Sinner showed some serious resilience in the second set. He saved four set points, and overcame an around-the-back highlight-reel shot from Alcaraz that brought the crowd to its collective feet—forcing a tiebreak. Once there, he would save yet another set point to level the match at a set apiece.

And Carlos Alcaraz led 4-2 in the third and served for the set at 6-5, only to have Sinner flash his defensive skills and force a second consecutive tiebreak, one he rolled through with ease.

Alcaraz—mentored by a man who knows what it takes to win on this court, 2003 finalist Juan Carlos Ferrero—saved a match point with Sinner serving at 5-4, and two games later forced a fifth and final set.

Alcaraz would create two break points with Sinner serving at 3-4 in the fifth, converting the second for the last break he would need, before serving out one of the most epic matches in the annals of the tournament.

“I always say, you have to believe in yourself,” said Alcaraz, who remains in contention for becoming the youngest No. 1 in the history of the ATP rankings. “Hope is the last thing that you lose. I just believed in myself, believed in my game.”
