Alcaraz’s Route To The Final

Carlos Alcaraz will compete in the final of a Grand Slam for the first time this weekend. The 19-year-old has been involved in classics throughout the US Open to this stage, including the five-set matches he has played in the previous three rounds. He once again needed to go the distance in Friday’s semi-final against Frances Tiafoe, eventually winning 6-7, 6-3, 6-1, 7-6, 6-3. 

Alcaraz has been on the court much longer than Ruud throughout the tournament, which means that he may be slightly fatigued on Sunday. However, he constantly looks like a player that improves as the game progresses, which means that he will continue to fight regardless of the stage of the game on Sunday.

Ruud’s Route To The Final

Casper Ruud will be playing in his second Grand Slam final this weekend. He was beaten in the final of the French Open earlier in the season, and has been very strong throughout the competition in New York over the past couple of weeks. This will be the first time that Ruud has come up against somebody in the top ten, but he has knocked out three seeded players in the previous rounds.

The Norwegian was extremely strong in the previous round, as he eased to a four-set victory over Karen Khachanov. He hit ten aces in that victory, and scored six from 13 break point opportunities. Ruud won 82% of the points on the first serve, and 61% on the second serve.

Head to Head Record

Alcaraz has picked up victories in each of the previous two meetings between the players. The latest victory was recorded in straight sets earlier this year at ATP Masters 1000 Miami. That success was on the hard court, while Alcaraz also recorded the other victory on the clay surface.

Men’s US Open Final Pick and Prediction

This should be a very exciting final given the talent of these two young players. However, we could see it going all the way to five sets. But, we could see Ruud getting the victory, as he has looked very dominant in the previous rounds, and Alcaraz’s time on court before the final could finally catch up with him.
