The crushing record pursued by Rafa Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz


The ATP can once again have two players of the same nationality

With his victory in US Open, Carlos Alcaraz became the youngest tennis player to reach number one in the ranking of the ATP and already being compared to Rafael Nadal. At 19 years old, he is already a star on the male circuit, breaking molds despite his young age.

And it is that both tennis players have not played any tournament this week, after Rafael Nadal was present at the farewell Roger Federer. The two Spaniards could rise to the top depending on what they could do Casper Ruud in the Seoul tournament, category ATP250.

Alcaraz and Nadal go for a new milestone

Tennis fans remember the moment Pistol Pete lost in Cincinnati

You have to go back to the year 2000 when Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras shared first and second place in the ranking for the United States. ‘Pistol Pete”s loss in the round of 16 in Cincinnati against Tim Henman ended a situation that hasn’t happened since.

Sampras would rise to the top again thanks to the final at the US Open, where he would fall against the Russian Marat Safin, but the rise of Gustavo Kuerten prevented the two Americans from being together again at the top, something they fight for currently Nadal and Alcaraz.

It depends on Casper Ruud if Alcaraz and Nadal can reach the top of the ATP ranking

Currently, Carlos Alcaraz leads the ATP classification with 6,740 points, with an 890 advantage over Casper Ruud, who in the same week last year won the title in San Diego, a tournament in the same category as the one in Seoul, where he starts as top seed.

If next week Nadal rises to number two, along with Alcaraz at the top, they would be the first two Spaniards to achieve it, a success that could end a historic season that has seen Rafa reach 22 Grand Slams and Alcaraz added in New York.
