Carlos Alcaraz is having a dream season. Arriving at the first tournament of the season, the Australian Open, from number 31 in the world, the Spaniard talent has climbed more and more the ranking, coming to occupy the number four position in the ranking.
A journey through four titles, two 500s and two Masters 1000s, on two different surfaces. In the Grand Slams, on the other hand, he pushed himself to the quarter-finals at the Roland Garros and the US Open. On US hard-courts, Carlos Alcaraz has the chance to reach an amazing goal: in addition to the hypothetical victory of the first Slam of his career, he could become the youngest number one in the world.
Waiting for both goals to be achieved in the Big Apple, the world number four has already achieved a record for this 2022: the theme is the number of victories won by the Spanish tennis player in this super season.
Carlos Alcaraz gets another new super record
Carlos Alcaraz reached 48 victories in 2022: he is the player with the most successes on the men's Tour.
Success has already arrived with the victory of the second round, while Stefanos Tsitsipas immediately left the scene: so he overtook the Greek tennis player. The Spaniard's partial is therefore 48 wins out of 57 games played so far: 18 on hardcourt, 27 on clay and only three on grass, all of which took place at Wimbledon.
To complete, for now, the ranking of the tennis players with the highest number of wins, there are two Top Ten and a player struggling to get back into it. The podium was conquered by the British Cameron Norrie, who reached 44 victories in the circuit: a streak interrupted in New York by Andrey Rublev in the second round.
Fourth and fifth places, on the other hand, could be a struggle until the last day of the year: Casper Ruud and Jannik Sinner both finished 42 victories. The Norwegian tennis player and the Italian are both involved in a double fight at the US Open: the first for the conquest of the top of the ranking, facilitated by the defeat of Rafael Nadal. Sinner for a return to the Top-10, a milestone he touched at the end of July, but lost within a few weeks.
