    Alcaraz eliminates Sinner and reaches the semifinals of the US Open

    Carlos Alcaraz made it to the US Open semifinals this morning by beating Jannik Sinner 6-3, 6-7(7), 6-7(0), 7-5, 6-3 (in 5h 15m). The 19-year-old Spaniard beat the Italian in a very close duel and thus managed to break his ceiling in a Grand Slam, after having reached the quarterfinals of the tournament last year and also those of Roland Garros this season. Now, the Murcian will face the American Frances Tiafoe, who beat Andrei Rublev 7-6(3), 7-6(0) and 6-4 on Wednesday, and who will also debut in the penultimate round of a major.

    This year, Alcaraz and Sinner had crossed paths twice and on both occasions – the round of 16 at Wimbledon and the final in Umag, Croatia – the rival was superior.

    Alcaraz is the player who has won the most titles (4) this year along with Rafael Nadal. He first celebrated Rio de Janeiro, then became the first Spaniard to raise the Miami Masters and during the spring he won the Godo and the Madrid Masters. The Spaniard not only sets the pace in terms of trophies. In addition, he is the player with the most wins this year (49) and also the youngest to reach the semi-final of the great New Yorker since the American Pete Sampras (19) did it in 1990, when he rose.

Now he joins the club of players who have signed the semifinals of New York, which included the Mallorcan (8), Pablo Carreno (2), David Ferrer (2), Juan Carlos Ferrero, Carlos Moyà, Manolo Orantes, Manolo Santana (two); in the women’s box Conchita Martinez and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario (6).
