Now tennis sensation Alcaraz is a force even on grass

Carlos Alcaraz has won an ATP tournament on grass for the first time. With the 6: 4 and 6: 4 against Alex de Minaur, the Spaniard not only won the winner’s trophy at the ATP Tour 500 event in London’s Queen’s Club, but also went back to the top of the ATP world rankings.

Carlos Alcaraz will start the Wimbledon tournament in first place. The Spaniard not only won his very first title on grass with a 6: 4 and 6: 4 against Alex de Minaur at the ATP Tour 500 tournament in London’s Queen’s Club – Alcaraz also overtook Novak Djokovic with his eleventh career championship the ATP world rankings.

However, this swap will have no effect on a direct match-up between the two, as was the case recently in Roland Garros: a meeting between the two best players in the world is still only possible in the final on Church Road.

But Alcaraz has at least talked about a deep run in Wimbledon with an ultimately sovereign week in the traditional Queen’s Club.

Last year he lost to Jannik Sinner in the round of 16. The South Tyrolean was eliminated a match later against Djokovic despite a 2-0 set lead.
