Alcaraz is given a scare

Carlos Alcaraz didn't come to Wimbledon with high expectations. He was the first to throw the first one: "Tournament I'm going, tournament I want win>>", but he also said, "I'm not the favourite here at all>>". It was then explained why Jan-Lennard Struff put him on the ropes. In his debut at All England Club, the Murcian had to defeat Struff (4-6-7-5, 4-6 4-6, 7-6(3) and 6-4) in order to win an emotional victory. This was also the first major scare of the tournament.

Alcaraz arrived without any preparation before the London Grand Slam. He noticed it right away, having difficulty adapting to the German's serves. Court 1 was like a fish in the water, and the roof was closed because of the rain, which disrupted the start to the day. Later, ten games were suspended.

Alcaraz began the week in London with little experience on the surface, and the bandage around his elbow that accompanied him through the week, he started a few marches behind Struff, who was out of shape, and suffered twelve defeats in the last 13 games. However, this surface feels like a glove to him.

Alcaraz was unsure of his service but he used it to deepen the match. He found a way to get ahead and awaken the Spaniard's nerves. It took him minutes to settle down on the grass. Alcaraz won the match by insisting on his point.

It was not a complete slap. Struff tried his best to prolong the match and Alcaraz was forced to make a comeback from a 2-1 defeat. Similar to his match against Albert Ramos at Roland Garros but without the match point guillotine. Alcaraz was able to overcome adversity once again. He moved like a fish swimming in water. With the push and the support of an audience who connects with him perfectly, he is considered a favorite to back, given the inability of local talent capable achieving the same achievements as the one from El Palmar, aged 19 years, already has.

Alcaraz added 'aces to his backpack' until he reached 30 - "the greatest game of my life on serve". However, the game was dominated by drama, especially when Struff won the 'tie-break' of the fourth set. However, the advantage was fleeting. Alcaraz won four consecutive points in the tiebreak, which led the match to the fifth set. In this place, the Murcian is nearly infallible. He has won four of the five matches that he has witnessed on this stage.

Alcaraz was not outraged, but he waited for the chance and the mental weakness in Struff to use the second ball of "break" he had in the fifth to win the game. The stadium waved at him.

Alejandro Davidovich was the one to throw the tower of the tournament. Hubert Hurkacz was seventh seed and one the favourites to reach the semifinals. He was eliminated by the man from Malaga, 7-6 (4), 6-4, 5-7, 2-6 and 7-6 ((8)). Davidovich won in a wild match, which he was able win in three sets. However, he lost a 40-0 serve. Hurkacz (recent Halle champion) overcame the deficit in two sets to win the match in fifth.

The Spaniard made a late comeback and won the super playoff. He rallied from a deficit of 4-7 to win the fifth match point.
