The German awaits the winner of the prime-time super-challenge between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal and celebrates his first victory against a Topten in a Grand Slam on the 12th attempt.

Sascha Zverev becomes the 4th man to beat the Carlos Alcaraz phenomenon in 2022 and he does it in a heart-pounding match, dominated in the first two sets, complicated by an empty pass in the third and decided at the second match point in the furious fight for the tie-break of the fourth set. The Spaniard thus surrenders after 14 games and two consecutive tournaments won, the ATP in Barcelona and the Masters 1000 in Madrid, the latter in the final against Zverev. Tennis gives, tennis takes away.

Zverev: “Alcaraz will win in Paris many times. I hope to win sooner”

As said, the 19-year-old from Murcia, number 6 in the world, starts low, foul, imprecise. A break in the fifth game of the first set and one in the seventh of the second allows the 25-year-old from Hamburg to climb 2-0 after just an hour and a half. On the 4-4 of the third Zverev even has a chance to break Alcaraz’s serve and close the score, but the Spaniard is saved and in the next game drives his opponent crazy calling him at the net with short balls. Result? Break, 6-4 and it goes to the fourth! The public of the Bois de Boulogne Central rejoices, finally facing the match for which he paid the ticket. After 44 free of the first three sets, Ferrero’s pupil has definitely woken up. A break and a counterbreak lead to the right and most logical ending to decide such an important challenge: the tie-break. To be seen and reviewed in tennis schools for intensity and beauty.

Alcaraz revived! The short ball hits, the set is his

Alcaraz starts with a minibreak at a disadvantage, down 2-0, but a straight down the line puts him back in the running at 3-3. Here we enter a new dimension, made of shots to be framed: Carlitos has two batting rounds at 4-3, Zverev is not there and regains his balance with a terrifying passer-by. At 4-4 Alcaraz gets it right, Sascha responds with a backhand winner, 5-5. Here Alcaraz has a set point, but the backhand, with a little arm, stops on the tape, 6-6. He is up to Zverev: match point canceled. Another chance to close for the German, the good one, a winning answer and a liberating scream. Paris is at his feet. Now you can sit in an armchair and enjoy, as a supporting actor, the 59th act of the Djokovic-Nadal saga.

Alcaraz tries to react: counter-damped by the book, Zverev stopped
