Alcaraz Cruises into Madrid Open Last 16

Defending champion Carlos Alcaraz showcased his prowess at the Madrid Open once again as he breezed past Thiago Seyboth Wild to secure a spot in the tournament’s last 16. The world number three, Alcaraz, displayed his mastery on the court with a commanding 6-3, 6-3 victory over Brazil’s Seyboth Wild.

Alcaraz, who previously clinched the Madrid Open title in 2022 and 2023, continued his dominance at the event, asserting his authority right from the start. Despite sporting a compression sleeve on his right arm following an injury that led to his withdrawal from the Barcelona Open earlier this month, Alcaraz exhibited no signs of discomfort as he powered through the match against his unseeded opponent.

The 20-year-old Spaniard broke Seyboth Wild’s serve twice in each set, quickly establishing a formidable lead, including a commanding 5-0 advantage in the second set. Although Seyboth Wild managed a late break, Alcaraz’s consistent performance ensured a swift and decisive victory in just 75 minutes.

Reflecting on his performance, Alcaraz expressed satisfaction with his form, stating, “Today was the test of fire, no discomfort, feeling spectacular, from here, we’ll be getting better.” Despite facing an opponent known for his powerful shots, Alcaraz remained composed throughout the match, crediting his focused mindset for his success.

With an impressive win percentage of 93.3% at the Madrid Open, Alcaraz has solidified his reputation as a formidable contender on the ATP circuit, boasting the highest win rate of any player in a single ATP-1000 event since 1990. His consistent excellence on the court has positioned him as a formidable force in the world of tennis.

In the upcoming round, Alcaraz is set to face Germany’s 23rd seed Jan-Lennard Struff, setting the stage for an exciting rematch of the 2023 final. Struff, who enters the match fresh off a victory at the BMW Open in Munich, presents a formidable challenge for Alcaraz as he seeks to maintain his momentum and secure another title at the Madrid Open.

As the tournament progresses, tennis fans eagerly anticipate witnessing Alcaraz’s continued dominance on the court, with each match serving as a testament to his skill, determination, and unwavering commitment to excellence. Stay tuned for more updates on Alcaraz’s journey through the Madrid Open as he vies for yet another championship title.
