On the hard-courts of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (Flushing Meadows, New York), the matches of the highly anticipated US Open 2021 are being played, the last Grand Slam of the season, during which there will be the absences of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams.
In the 3rd round of the men's singles, in one of the most spectacular matches of the tournament so far, the young Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, for many the spiritual and national heir of Rafael Nadal, eliminated Stefanos Tsitsipas in 5 exciting sets, beating the Greek with the final score of 6-3 4-6 7-6 0-6 7-6.
After all the controversy following the match won against Andy Murray, evidently the pressure was too much to handle for Tsitsipas, who missed the crucial moments of the match. In the other matches, wins came Daniil Medvedev, Barbora Krejcikova, Garbine Muguruza, Angelique Kerber and Simona Halep.
Out Naomi Osaka.
