Alcaraz chases down world number one spot after Madrid Masters win
The clay court season is truly up and running after the Madrid Masters finals this past weekend. World number 2 Carlos Alcaraz retained his title in his native capital, seeing off the challenge of German underdog Jan-Lennard Struff. The young Spaniard had to battle in a hard-fought win over Struff 6-4 3-6 6-3. The veteran German came into the tournament ranked world number 65 and showed great heart to reach the final. However, the class of Alcaraz eventually proved too much as he won his career 10th title and his 4th masters 1000.
The Madrid Masters has left Alcaraz on the brink of reclaiming his world number one spot from Novak Djokovic. Alcaraz is all but guaranteed to overtake Djokovic at the next clay tournament in Rome and from there his attention will turn to Roland-Garros at the end of May. The remarkable rise of Alcaraz has taken the tennis world by storm, only turning 20 during the Madrid Masters tournament. Roland-Garros will see Alcaraz looking to win his 2nd career Grand Slam after the US Open last year, with tennis fans everywhere anticipating a potential all-Spanish clash with the king of the clay Rafael Nadal.
