Carlos Alcaraz’s journey at the Bercy Masters 1000 in Paris came to an unexpected end as he was defeated by the 45th-ranked player in the world, Roman Safiullin. The Spanish prodigy, who entered the tournament with high hopes, was outplayed in two sets (6-3, 6-4). Alcaraz struggled throughout the match, committing numerous errors and unforced mistakes. His early exit raises concerns ahead of the upcoming season-ending Masters event, which will feature the world’s top players starting from November 12.

Alcaraz’s Disappointing Performance

For the first time in a year, Carlos Alcaraz faced an early elimination upon entering a tournament. The last time this happened was on October 4, 2022. Alcaraz, who recently suffered from pain and received treatment in Basel, seemed to be lacking full recovery and was not in his best form. Safiullin took advantage of the situation and secured a well-deserved victory. The 26-year-old Russian showcased his strong performance, including a solid second half of the season with notable achievements such as reaching the final in ATP 250, a five-set battle against the 14th-ranked Tommy Paul at the US Open, and victories over Alexander Zverev and Andy Murray in Shanghai.

Safiullin’s overpowering serve and consistent performance highlighted Alcaraz’s weaknesses, particularly in his second serve. The 45th-ranked player in the ATP ranking proved that his recent success was not a coincidence but a result of his hard work and skill.
