Carlos Alcaraz reaches the round of 16

The Spanish Carlos Alcaraz became at 19 years old the youngest tennis player to reach the round of 16 at Roland Garros since 2006, after defeating the American Sebastian Korda 6-4, 6-4 and 6-2 in 2 hours and 6 minutes.

Alcaraz will be measured for a place in the quarterfinals against the Russian Karen Khachanov, who got rid of the 10th in the world, the British Cameron Norrie, 6-2, 7-5, 5-7 and 6-4.

"It’s fun to play on a court like this, with this atmosphere, the night session is fun, people enjoy it. Whenever I play I try to have fun, I like to play tennis, cheer on a crowd like this"assured the Spaniard.

Alcaraz got rid of the only tennis player who this season had managed to beat him on clay, something that happened in the last Monte Carlo tournament.

But, then, the Spaniard arrived with the Miami title recently conquered and with hardly any filming on that surface.

Now, he added his 19th victory on clay and the 31st in total so far this season, in which he has only lost three duels.

Alcaraz continues to set marks of precocity and against Korda, another promising youngster, he developed a more solid game than the one he had shown in the previous phase against his compatriot Albert Ramos, when he had to come back from a match point before prevailing in five sets .

This time he played in the central office of Paris and in the night session, with a very festive atmosphere, with many fans dressed in the Real Madrid shirt on the eve of the Champions League final that tomorrow will face that team against Liverpool.
