Grigor Dimitrov 'made me feel like I'm 13 years old' says Carlos Alcaraz after shocking Miami loss

Carlos Alcaraz was left shocked and stunned as Grigor Dimitrov thumped him at the Miami Open 6-4, 6-2 on Thursday night to seal a spot in the semi-finals. This ends Alcaraz' hope of sealing the so-called Sunshine Double after winning Indian Wells.
After defeat, Alcaraz was honest with his assessment saying that the way Dimitrov played made him feel like a teenager. Similar to Gael Monfils' response when he played Alcaraz, he didn't know what to do and how to get past him and after a previously incredible head to head record pointed to an Alcaraz win, he sunk without trace.
"I feel, I have a lot of frustrations right now, because he made me feel like I'm 13 years old. You know, it was crazy. I was talking to my team saying that I don't know what I have to do. I don't know, you know, his weakness. I don't know anything," said Alcaraz.
But also the frustration was confounded as in his view he thinks he played well through it all. "That's why I have frustration right now, but, you know, in the thought of tennis, I left the court happy with my level. I think I played good tennis. I mean, I left the court thinking that probably I had to change my game a little bit earlier, but anyway, I feel like I played a good tennis. Not perfect but a good one."
