ATP Madrid 2022: Alcaraz beats Nadal, Djokovic and the quarters HIGHLIGHTS

It was the most anticipated match and it kept expectations. Carlos Alcaraz vs Rafael Nadal has experienced reversals, spectacular points, crashes and much more. The pupil against the master, the king's heir in Spain, Alcaraz and Nadal represent the past, present and future of Spanish tennis.

After dominating the first set Carlos fell in the second set, a crash that created problems for him and was one of the reasons for the collapse in the second set, but Alcaraz once again showed his technical and mental caliber and won for the first time in career against his idol.

Now another luxury challenge with the nineteen year old who will face the world number one Novak Djokovic. The player everyone has come to know is (already) back. Almost put aside the announced illness, which compromised his performance when he returned to the circuit after missing the two tournaments on American hardcourt, Novak Djokovic hit the semifinal in the Madrid Master 1000, clearly beating the Polish Hubert Hurkacz in two sets.

The Serbian is playing a very good tournament from a Spanish perspective, not conceding partials to Gael Monfils and the last opponent he faced, also taking advantage of the withdrawal of the British Andy Murray. In the semifinals the level will rise considerably, as he will have to challenge the Spanish tennis player.

Tennis TV has broadcast through its social channels the video of the match point, which earned the Belgrade native access to the penultimate act of the competition, and the final applause, as well as the greeting between the two athletes.
