World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz showcased his dominance at the US Open 2023 by steamrolling No. 12 seed Alexander Zverev. The scoreline of 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 tells the story of Alcaraz’s utter control on Wednesday night. This sets the stage for a stellar men’s singles semifinal and rearrangement of tennis stats.
Alcaraz has been a force to reckon with in New York, dropping just one set in five matches. His remarkable performance against Zverev, an elite returner, included zero breaks against him and a dominant presence at the net.
Men’s Singles Semifinal With 3 Giants and an Underdog
Alcaraz crushes Zverev and this victory paves the way for a high-powered men’s singles semifinal clash with No. 3 seed Daniil Medvedev.
On the other side of the bracket, 22-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic gears up to face the unseeded American Ben Shelton, who stunned everyone, against all tennis predictions, with his upset of Frances Tiafoe in the quarterfinals.
The final Grand Slam of the season promises an epic showdown between tennis giants and an up-and-coming 20-year-old underdog who turned pro just over a year ago. As Alcaraz crushes Zverev, the semifinal gets set as it now stands.
