In the latest tennis news, we are taking a look at one of the fresh faces in tennis, and one who plays really well. Good enough, that he beat Rafael Nadal in the fourth round of the US Open. Frances Tiafoe actually broke Rafael Nadal’s record, giving the Spaniard his first Grand Slam loss in more than a year. But Tiafoe is not the star of tennis right now, its Carlos Alcaraz.
As a pay per head bookie, you should know all of the tennis players who are starting to beat the greats in the sport- something that does not happen a lot. And when Tiafoe beat Nadal, we thought that was the end of it.
Unfortunately for Tiafoe, Carlos Alcaraz sought revenge for his fellow Spaniard and beat Tiafoe in the US Open semifinal yesterday. After he dropped the first set, he was able to win in the next two sets. The 19-year-old was playing well, and with Tiafoe, gave us a great tiebreaker in the fourth set. Surely this was something that got tennis betting fans in a frenzy. And if you still do not have a preferred sportsbook, check out these sportsbook reviews.
Carlos Alcaraz and the US Open
Alcaraz will face Casper Ruud on Sunday. Ruud is coming off a 76(7-5),6-2,5-7,6-2 win over Karen Khachanov. The final game features names that are not some of the most popular tennis stars, so this will be one worth watching.
If Alcaraz wins, he will be the first teenager to win a men’s Grand slam since Rafael Nadal did back in 2005. Whoever wins the US Open will also become the World No. 1, so that’s a lot to fight for. Both players had very nerve-wracking games to reach the final, and tennis fans are expecting no less this weekend.
