That was truly amazing. I love both these guys but was rooting for Frances as he was on home turf and a bit of an underdog. I am still thrilled for Alcaraz - this kid is nuts!! Unreal!
It was really an exciting final. Like you said, Alcaraz held his nerve, even though he was not necessarily playing his best tennis the entire time. At 19 and 23 these players will be around for us, if their bodies hold out, for many years and Slams to comeWhat a talent Alcaraz is, and he seems to have a great mental game as well to hold his concentration and nerve through that final. And the crowd seems to love him. Who knows for sure what the future holds, but he may be able to rival the 20+ Grand Slam wins of Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic.
