The Spanish Wunderkind Carlos Alcaraz has won his first ATP master in Miami and crowned himself to the youngest winner in the tournament history. The 18-year-old defeated the five years older ZVEREV-Zwinger Casper Ruud from Norway with 7: 5, 6: 4 in his first Masters Final. For Alcaraz, it is to Umag 2021 and Rio de Janeiro 2022 the third title on the tour.
"I'm absolutely speechless and so happy," Alcaraz said, "I've always tried to attack to dominate him the game."
Alcaraz, who was able to win the Next Generation ATP Finals last year, will stand in the new world ranking from Monday for the first time in eleven. With the success, the right hand continued its strong start of the year on the tour and is now at 18 wins and two defeats in 2022.
After a nervous beginning with many light mistakes Alcaraz stabilized and could decide the first sentence despite a 0: 3 and 1: 4 residue. In the second sentence, Alcaraz, who had defeated in the semifinals the previous year's winner Hubert Hurkacz from Poland, directly a break. He subsequently delivered a sovereign performance.
After almost two hours, the Alcaraz set at position 14 then turned his first matchball and is now the third-tied winner of a Master, younger were only American Michael Chang in Toronto and Grand Slam record winner Rafael Nadal in Monte Carlo.
