Defending champion Carlos Alcaraz dominated his US Open quarterfinal match against Alexander Zverev, securing a commanding victory to book his place in the semifinals. Three former champions, including Alcaraz, Novak Djokovic, and Daniil Medvedev, will battle it out in the men’s semifinals. Joining them is the unseeded American Ben Shelton, who completed the surprising semifinal line-up.
Alcaraz and Djokovic are considered the strong favorites to reach the final, setting up the possibility of a repeat of the Wimbledon showpiece. Zverev, who bowed out to Alcaraz, acknowledged both players as being on a different level, highlighting their dominance in the tournament.
From the start of the match, Alcaraz took control by breaking Zverev at a crucial moment in the first set. This advantage proved to be pivotal as Alcaraz maintained his lead throughout the match. Zverev, on the other hand, faced discomfort in his left hamstring, which hindered his performance and affected his serve.
Looking ahead to the semifinals, Alcaraz expressed his confidence as he will face Medvedev, whom he holds a positive head-to-head record against. The young Spaniard is optimistic about his chances of advancing to the final.
With his latest victory, Alcaraz’s record at the US Open now stands at an impressive 16 wins and only one defeat, matching the illustrious feat achieved by Andre Agassi. Reflecting on his growth and maturity as a player since last year’s semifinals, Alcaraz expressed his pride and determination to continue his success in the tournament.
As the US Open reaches its thrilling climax, tennis fans can look forward to exhilarating matches between these elite players. Will Alcaraz and Djokovic fulfill the expectations and clash in a thrilling final? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for more updates from Shiv Telegram Media.
