Alcaraz Faces Zverev in ATP Finals – A Clash of Titans
- Alcaraz beat Zverev in their last encounter at the US Open 2023, in three sets.
- The Spaniard, eliminated in the 2nd round at Bercy, will not finish the year as the world number 1 following Djokovic’s victory on Sunday evening against Rune.
- The meeting corresponds to the group stage of the ATP Finals (red group).
After Novak Djokovic’s victory over Holger Rune on Sunday evening, Carlos Alcaraz knows that he no longer has a chance to finish 2023 as the world number one. However, as he arrives at the ATP Finals in Turin, the young Spanish prodigy has set his sights on other objectives. Winning this tournament, which he missed last year due to injury, at only 20 years old, would be an exceptional achievement, but he still has a long way to go. On Monday, he faces the formidable German, Zverev, who reached the round of 16 at Bercy.
This ATP Finals match will be broadcast live on Eurosport on Monday, November 13, 2023, starting from 2:30 p.m.
Zverev, the Dark Horse
Having won the Hamburg and Chengdu tournaments this year, the 26-year-old German hopes to make a mark in Turin. With two ATP Finals titles under his belt in 2018 and 2021 (against Djokovic and Medvedev), Zverev knows the recipe for claiming the coveted trophy. Facing a newcomer to the competition, he holds the advantage of experience.
Alcaraz, in Top Form?
The recent performances of the Spanish prodigy have not been particularly reassuring. However, with six titles won in 2023, including Buenos Aires, Indian Wells, Barcelona, Madrid, Queen’s, and Wimbledon, Alcaraz has an impressive resume. Although he was recently eliminated in the 2nd round of Bercy and the round of 16 in Shanghai, Alcaraz may have been saving his best for these ATP Finals. The answer will be revealed on Monday!
