Days after his dominant display in the final of the Barcelona Open against Greek star Stefanos Tsistipas, an old video of him stating how his game-plan against Tsitispas would be is making rounds around on internet. Tennis TV has shared the video on Twitter, which has already reached peak engagement.

As Alcaraz said, “Against Tsitsipas, I do a lot of drop shots and I would say I am winning every point that I hit the drop shot. So I would say Tsitsipas is one of the players that I hit a lot of drop shots against and I win almost everyone“. This was the actual game executed by the Spaniard in the Barcelona Open final against the Greek. Tsitsipas was struggling to read the drops shots of Alcaraz.

Alcaraz has won all four matches he has played against Tsitsipas until now. This includes the 2021 US Open third round epic in which the Spaniard survived in a five-set thriller. That was the first and only match played on hard courts. The last three encounters were on clay and Tsitsipas was only able to clinch one set in total. That was in the Barcelona Open quarter final in 2022.

The Spanish sensation had one of the best seasons ever by a teenager in 2022. Carlos Alcaraz became World No. 1 at 19 years, 4 months, and 7 days, displacing Lleyton Hewitt‘s nearly 21-year-old record of being the youngest at 20 years, eight months, and 26 days. Apart from his maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open 2022, Alcaraz collected four other titles in 2022, which include two Masters 1000 tournaments.

This year, after skipping the Australian Open due to a muscle injury, he came back strong and defeated Daniil Medvedev in the Indian Wells Masters final. The sheer athleticism and the baseline game of the Spanish teen proved strong yet again.

His title defense in Barcelona Open is the second clay court title of the season for him. The first was in the Argentina Open months ago. While considering the absence of Rafael Nadal in the clay court swing till now and the struggles of Novak Djokovic to get into a rhythm, Carlos Alcaraz has a real shot at the biggest prize in Roland Garros next month.
