With his victory at the US Open, Carlos Alcaraz won the first Grand Slam tournament of his career and became the youngest world number one tennis player in history. Carlos's achievements are visible, as they show the great growth of Murcian talent.
Alcaraz beat Sinner and Tiafoe with great battles and won a first round match in a Slam final, beating Casper Ruud without much concern. Shortly after the victory, the Spanish tennis player admitted that he had been lucky in the absence of former world number one Novak Djokovic.
On this Carlos said: "The Big Three? I would like to play against Roger Federer and in general I want to beat a Big Three during the Grand Slam events. To be the best you have to beat the best." Novak Djokovic missed the US Open due to the vaccine regulations and the question that arises in the United States: without a complete vaccination course you cannot enter the United States.
Now there is great curiosity to see how and when Novak will return and when he will be able to face the new number one. From October 29 to November 6, 2022, the Paris-Bercy Masters 1000 will be held, the last Masters 1000 of the season.
The French tournament recently published a publicity video of the event and Matteo Berrettini, Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic appear briefly in the short click. The Serbian champion will be able to closely observe the evolution of the new world number one and Grand Slam champion, Carlos Alcaraz.
Djokovic pays tribute to Serena
Novak Djokovic paid tribute to Serena Williams in light of her retirement with some kind words for the 23-time Grand Slam singles champion. "My probably favorite memory of us together is winning Wimbledon and then dancing at the champions' dinner," Djokovic said in a video shared by the ATP tour.
"It was a blast, it was one of the best moments I had on the tour with you. Thank you so much for everything you have done for our beautiful sport," the Serbian player said. "Your contribution and your legacy on and off the court will live forever.
I value and cherish our relationship that goes on for many years and I was hoping that this moment will never arrive when you announced your retirement, and here we are. You can be very very proud of what you have achieved and what you left behind.
You have inspired so many different generations, not only tennis players but athletes around the world," Djokovic added.
