Carlos Alcaraz is the best player on the tour this season despite just turning 19. The Spaniard has won 4 tournaments so far this season and he seems ready to attack his first Grand Slam title. He was dominating wherever he played in 2022 but barely survived the second round match against Albert Ramos Vinollas which proved that Alcaraz is also vulnerable. He will go against Sebastian Korda in the third round who has defeated Alcaraz 2-0 on clay recently in Monte Carlo.
Korda is also only 20-years-old and has a great serve which can give him chance in this match. Anyway, Alcaraz is a much more versatile player than Korda and will win this one but the American will be good enough to win a set which will lead this match to over 34.5 games in total.
