Carlos Alcaraz gives magnificent tennis moments to every match he plays, as he is doing in these hours at the US Open 2023. The Spaniard also put himself on great display during the third round at Flushing Meadows, eventually beating Briton Daniel Evans, winner of this year's ATP 500 in Washington.

Carlos Alcaraz wins crazy point against Evans!

In all likelihood, the Spanish tennis player won the point of the entire New York tournament: it seemed like a rally lost by the young 20-year-old, who was very skilled in taking the point and once again receiving the many applauses from the large audience in the stands.

The Englishman defended himself from the excellent forehand down the line of the Iberian with a very deep and very insidious backhand in recovery. At that point Evans took the net route and tried to finish with the volley.

However, Alcaraz was reactive and out of nowhere he found a spectacular forehand pass, which hit the backline. A crazy winner that allowed Carlitos to get the break in the fourth set. Alcaraz has thus obtained the pass for the round of 16 in Flushing Meadows and finds himself again surrounded by Italian tennis players.

In fact, in the next match he will play a difficult match against the Italian Matteo Arnaldi, one of the great surprises of the first week of competitions. If successful, there could be a rematch with Jannik Sinner, who will first have to get rid of a physically recovering Sascha Zverev.

The tournament will start to get more and more complicated for coach Juan Carlos Ferrero's athlete, who will have to overcome several insidious obstacles before the final and the hypothetical battle with Novak Djokovic. In the press conference, the Spaniard said: "I watched the first two sets, then I had to go to sleep.

But, when I went to bed, I thought Novak would be back, that's for sure. be one of the best in history. He came from two sets to zero, I think I saw him six, seven times. So it's something crazy. Playing at 36 and doing the same things as when he was 20 is incredible.

We have to acknowledge that, and that's something I admire." Here is the video released by the Us Open on its X channel.
