Carlos Alcaraz continues to dispel the doubts regarding his right forearm problems and, after beating Alexander Shevchenko in the second round of the Madrid Open 2024, has done the same with a player more specialized in clay as Thiago Seyboth Wild, 6-3, 6-3.
The first set started evenly, with Alcaraz giving himself an option to break the Brazilian's serve in the opening game of the match, but two big serves from Seyboth Wild and a miss from the Spaniard meant that the world number 63 got away with it and held his serve.
Until 3-3 it remained very even, with both players dominating their service games and displaying an aggressive and powerful style. At that point, Alcaraz decided it was time to accelerate. He won the last three games of the first set to take the set 6-3 and extended his streak to a 5-0 lead in the second set.
The second set was a real recital of the Spaniard. He did not slow the pace at any time and even showed signs of progress with his forehand, a blow that has conditioned due to his forearm discomfort. However, with 5-0 in favor it seems that he relaxed a little, as can be absolutely normal.
Seyboth Wild took advantage of this to take the next three games, breaking Alcaraz's serve for the first time in the match. But the double winner of the Madrid Open did not want to leave any doubts and closed with his serve to leave the final result in a double 6-3.
In the next one he will face Jan-Lennard Struff, in a rematch of last year's final won by Carlitos 6-3, 3-6, 6-3. The German comes in great form with his win at the BMW Munich Open at home last week and knowing the Caja Magica well.

Carlos Alcaraz beats Thiago Wild 6-3, 6-3 to reach the last 16 in Madrid once again. 13 consecutive wins at the Caja Magica 🔥 Rematch of the 2023 final on Tuesday vs. Struff (coming from the Munich title) 🍿
