Carlos Alcaraz dedicated his victory against Tommy Paul to his countryman, Formula 1 star, Fernando Alonso, at the end of the round of 16 match at the Miami Open. The Spanish tennis player, in the traditional moment of signing on camera after a victory, has decided to write the words 33 soon.

Of course, the 19-year-old champion has wished his countryman to win his 33rd race in a grand prix very soon, having started the 2023 world championship season very well with Aston Martin. The message of the number one in the world has certainly not gone unnoticed and Fernando did not miss his reaction to the gesture of the tennis player trained by coach Juan Carlos Ferrero.

"Lock this man up," the two-time world champion replied with several smiley faces on Twitter, adding: "You're a phenomenon, vamos!" On social media, the exchange continued with another joke from Alcaraz: "You made me spin," the Spaniard finally commented.

Spain was so inflamed by the beautiful question and answer between two great athletes, who carry their country's flag high in their respective sport.

While Alonso prepares to face the Australian stage next weekend, Carlos Alcaraz continues the adventure in the Master 1000 in Miami.

The Spaniard is practically unstoppable and in the round of 16 he also managed to regulate the home American Tommy Paul, defeated with a double 6-4. In the quarterfinals another American, the best of all according to the current ATP ranking, will be on the way: it is Taylor Fritz, a very difficult opponent to face especially on hard courts.

After triumphing in Indian Wells, the Spaniard tennis player keeps his dream of obtaining a 'sunshine double' (consecutively winning the Indian Wells and Miami tournaments) very open. A milestone achieved by very few other athletes: with his solid performances on the court, the 19-year-old is ready to write another incredible page in the history of tennis.
