In Sunday’s final, Alcaraz will play against defending champion Alexander Zverev of Germany or Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece. The Spanish young man will play for the fourth title this year and the fifth overall in his career.

Alcaraz did not manage a well-played first set against Djokovic, but then he managed to turn the score around and beat the twenty-time Grand Slam champion after three hours and 35 minutes.

He followed the quarterfinal victory over star compatriot Rafael Nadal. “It simply came to our notice then. To be honest, I don’t know what decided at all, “Alcaraz said on the ATP website.

“It will give me a lot of confidence before the finals. I played very well and for the rest of the season I know that I can beat even the best players in the world, “added Alcaraz, who still has a 100% balance in the final matches.
