Alkaras defends his first title at the Barcelona Open

Carlos Alcaras (2nd, Spain) lifted his third championship trophy this season alone. He successfully defended his title last year at the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) Tour Barcelona Open (total prize money of 2,722,480 euros), which he won.

Alkaras defeated Stephanos Tsitsipas (5th place, Greece) 2-0 (6-3 6-4) in the singles final of the Barcelona Open, which ended in Barcelona, ​​Spain on the 23rd (local time). Alkaras played confidently against Chichipas, who had won all three matches in his career before the match. After making opponents fall behind the court with overwhelming forehand power, he won several points with his long-term drop shot. Tsitsipas seemed to lose his will in the second half of the second set.

This is the first title defense of last year’s champion, Alkaras. Al Karas even took home his winning prize of 477,795 dollars (approximately 630 million won). 메이저놀이터

Alkaras, born in 2003, won the US Open singles in September last year and is the youngest player ever to reach the world No. 1 ranking. Alkaras was the first to become world number one in men’s tennis singles before turning 20. Although he could not participate in his first major tournament of the year, the Australian Open, due to a leg injury, he is reporting wins every month until the Argentine Open in February, the BNP Paribas Open in March, and the Barcelona Open.

“It feels so good to lift the trophy in front of his family and friends,” said Alkaras with delight.
