The rise of Carlos Alcaraz is sometimes difficult to digest and astonishing to watch. The 18-year old was ranked outside the top 100 and was playing Challengers just a few months back and now in 2022, he has made it to the semifinals of the ‘Sunshine Double’. In the quarterfinals of the Miami Open, which was one of the best matches of the season, Alcaraz defeated Miomir Kecmanovic in three sets 6-7(5),6-3,7-6(5).

The Spaniard also became the youngest man in tennis history to reach the semifinal of both Indian Wells and Miami. Alcaraz has already broken into the top 15 of the world and with a win over Hubert Hurkacz in the semifinals, he will climb up to No.12 in the ATP rankings and if all goes well, he could become the new World No.11 with a title triumph at Miami.

Alcaraz has a 15-2 win-loss record in 2022 and has already won his maiden ATP 500 title at Rio. He hasn’t lost to players outside the top 8 this season and both the two matches he has lost have gone down the distance.
