Carlitos’ wins at Queen’s

In the first set, each service game is a potential turning point of a set which, in fact, is balanced: no break point until the eighth hunger, where the top seed is forced to save two. Alcaraz replies immediately, for which one is enough to conquer that single advantage that is needed to direct the first set: when he goes to serve for the partial, he concedes only one point before filing.

In the second set, the Spaniard raises the level, allowing a few less unforced errors, although the drop shots don’t always work as they should. And yet, even the second set is decided by a single break, conquered in the fifth set still taking advantage of a single break point.
