Alcaraz Breaks New Ground, Mover Of Week
No. 9 Carlos Alcaraz +2, (Career High)
The #NextGenATP Spaniard has made more history after becoming the ninth-youngest player to climb into the Top 10 since the inception of the ATP Rankings in 1973. The 18-year-old captured his third tour-level title of the season on the clay at the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell in front of his home support, defeating Pablo Carreno Busta in the final. The last player to crack the Top 10 at Alcaraz’s age was countryman Rafael Nadal, who also achieved the feat on 25 April following the ATP 500 in Barcelona in 2005. Nadal triumphed at the event 17 years ago, defeating Alcaraz's coach Juan Carlos Ferrero in the championship match. Read Barcelona Final Report & Watch Highlights.
