Carlos Alcaraz Arrives Ahead of Schedule As the World’s Best

Chris Almeida: All credit to you. You were right, Carlos Alcaraz is our U.S. Open men’s singles champion for 2022. He made, by his standards, quick work of Casper Ruud in the final: 6–4, 2–6, 7–6 (1), 6–3. And, boy, you can’t say he didn’t earn it. He did everything you could possibly ask him to do over the course of the tournament: win long matches, short matches, late matches, early matches. Beat young players, old players. Everything. This guy is going to be good for a long time.

Jon Wertheim: He spent more time on the court than any player in U.S. Open history. He won three five-setters that all ended in the a.m., and then he comes back for the biggest match of his career and he outlasts a player known for his durability? We’re running out of superlatives here and he’s 19 years old.
