Ruud and Alcaraz Compete for Tennis’ Top Position

Today in New York, the US Open final will feature a match between the Spanish youth Carlos Alcaraz and the Norwegian Casper Ruud.

With a five-set victory against American hopeful Frances Tiafoe in the US Open semifinals, Alcaraz, 19, advanced to his first Grand Slam final.

By defeating Karen Khachanov of Russia earlier on Friday, Ruud, on the other hand, will continue his own quest for a maiden major championship.

Fifth seed Ruud triumphed 7-6 (7-5) 6-2 5-7 6-2 while third seed Alcaraz won 6-7 (6-8) 6-3 6-1 6-7 (5-7) 6-3.

Whoever wins today’s final will go up to the top spot in the men’s rankings.

The winner will take Daniil Medvedev’s spot at the top of the ATP rankings, which he lost to in the round of 16 in Flushing Meadows.

Alcaraz has been predicted to win a Grand Slam for some time, and he is now only one victory away from being the youngest player to win a major since Rafael Nadal at the 2005 French Open.

The boy won the chance by winning another incredible competition that showcased his ability, athleticism, and passion.

It took him more than four hours and four match points to defeat the 22nd seed Tiafoe, making it the third straight match that he won in a drawn-out five-setter.
