An epic night in New York finished with the most desirable outcome for Carlos Alcaraz as the Spaniard caleimed his maiden grand slam trophy.
It comes after a spectacular event fill with spectacular wins. One of those was in the final against Casper Ruud whom he bested in four sets and speaking afterwards, an emotional Carlitos said:
“It is something I have dreamt of since I was a kid. To be No. 1 in the world, to be champion of a Grand Slam, is something I have worked really, really hard [for]. It is tough to talk right now, I have lots of emotions. This is something I have tried to achieve. All the hard work I have done with my team and my family. I am just 19 years old, all the tough decisions have been with my parents and my team as well. It is something that is really special for me."
