01:16 07.09.2023

In a thrilling quarterfinal match at the U.S. Open, Carlos Alcaraz showcased his exceptional talent and unique flair on the court. The Spaniard, known for his versatility, astonished the crowd with his impressive racket skills that seemed straight out of a carnival or three-ring circus. During his match against Germany's Alexander Zverev, Alcaraz casually twirled his racket mid-air at least 15 times in between games, without letting it touch the blue surface of Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Despite the pressure of the Grand Slam match, Alcaraz remained composed and unfazed as he effortlessly executed his trick shots. True to his performance throughout the tournament, the 20-year-old superstar dominated the first two sets, winning 6-3 and 6-2. Alcaraz's exceptional display of skill and fun-loving attitude has made him a crowd favorite in Flushing.

This victory over Zverev, the 12th-ranked player in the world, further solidified Alcaraz's status as a rising star in the tennis world. Zverev, who had reached the semifinals in five of the last 10 Grand Slam tournaments, was unable to match Alcaraz's brilliance on the court. Despite playing a strong first set, Zverev was unable to maintain his momentum as Alcaraz broke him late in the set, ultimately leading to his defeat.

Alcaraz's dominance was evident throughout the match, as he served beautifully and displayed his trademark dominance from the baseline to the net. Zverev had multiple opportunities to break Alcaraz but failed to capitalize on them, whiffing on five chances. In contrast, Alcaraz converted all four of his break point opportunities, securing a comfortable victory in just two hours and 29 minutes.

Alcaraz's exceptional performance has set up a highly anticipated semifinal match against No. 3 seed Daniil Medvedev. As the reigning U.S. Open champion, Alcaraz aims to defend his title and continue his impressive run in Flushing. The prospect of an Alcaraz-Djokovic final looms, reminiscent of their clash at Wimbledon earlier this year.

Prior to his quarterfinal triumph, Alcaraz faced No. 26 seed Dan Evans in a thrilling third-round match. The two players engaged in a battle of highlight-reel shots, leaving both the crowd and Evans frustrated by Alcaraz's extraordinary talent. Alcaraz emerged victorious with a 6-2, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 win, advancing to the fourth round.

During the match, Alcaraz and Evans exchanged spectacular shots that left the crowd in awe. In one particular rally, Evans attempted a tricky through-the-legs shot to save himself, but it was not enough to overcome Alcaraz's precision. Evans' frustration reached a boiling point when Alcaraz hit a shot that left him completely stunned. As the ball sailed over Evans' head and landed just inside the back line, he could only stand in silence before venting his frustration by flinging his racket.

Alcaraz's remarkable display of skill and his ability to leave opponents in disbelief has made him a force to be reckoned with in the tournament. His confidence and comfort on the court have contributed to his success, and he expressed his satisfaction with his level of play thus far.

As Alcaraz looks to secure his second consecutive U.S. Open title, spectators eagerly await his next awe-inspiring display. The young Spaniard's combination of talent, flair, and entertainment value has captivated the Queens crowd and left opponents searching for answers. With each match, Alcaraz continues to establish himself as a true tennis prodigy, and his journey in the tournament promises to be nothing short of extraordinary.
