For the last clash this season between the two best players on the planet, the suspense was not there. World number 1 Novak Djokovic got the better of Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz this Saturday in Turin in the semi-final of the Masters (6-3 6-2). The Serbian was never worried in this match where the No.2 in the ATP never managed to find his rhythm.
Carlos Alcaraz, who is always very aggressive against Novak Djokovic, made too many mistakes to be able to worry the record holder of Grand Slam titles. The native of El Palmar made 22 unforced errors in the match compared to only 8 for the “Djoker”. Alcaraz showed an alternative level of play in this match and clearly lacked juice and explosiveness. Djokovic, for his part, once again showed himself to be efficient and surgical in the decisive moments.
The Spaniard woke up at the end of the match to offer us two crazy games where the exchanges were Dantesque, but it was too little to overthrow this Djokovic, overflowing with serenity. Surely the least spectacular confrontation between the two men. Novak Djokovic will face Italian Jannik Sinner on Sunday evening in the Masters final. In case of victory, the Serbian will become the most successful player of the “Masters tournament” with seven crowns to his name. It will be one more than Roger Federer.
