Carlos Alcaraz demolishes Wolf with his biggest victory at Roland Garros

Carlos Alcaraz He has passed the first round of Roland Garros for the fourth time in a row in his career. In fact, it is 13-0 in its debut on the four major racket stages.. The world number three has ended the resistance by JJ Wolf, 6-1, 6-2 and 6-1.

Juan Carlos Ferrero’s pupil is missing matches, especially on clay, after being absent from Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Rome due to an injury to the pronator teres in his right arm.

To find his last official commitment you had to go back to May 1 when he lost in the quarterfinals of the Mutua Madrid Open with Andrey Rublevlater winner of the contest.

He has only played five games on a slow court, of which four were in the Caja Mágicadefeated in the quarterfinals by Andrey Rublev, later champion. The first week of the ‘majors’, for the main seeds, serves as a tune-up. For Carlitos it is no exception. It is facilitated by the entity of his adversaries.

Alcaraz likes to start by subtracting. This time she had to jump and paid for it with a break. He didn’t even flinch, there was a world left. The Murcian would recover the ‘break’ immediately afterwards and would decide the next six games in his favor. A donut but without the 0 in the score. Wolf, who had returned serves at 200 kilometers per hour, was already failing. The logical thing due to his ranking. He is 107.

The day in Paris was like another day in the French capital: minutes of sun and heat combined with others of cold and clouds. It would end up raining. The gusts of wind made the spectacle difficult. Carlitos, who had committed three unforced errors with his forehand in the opening game, was honing his best weapon as the minutes passed.

The majestic Philippe Chatrier It had been packed to see the youngest number 1 in history, a natural replacement for the ‘Big Three’ of the racket, both for tennis and for charisma..

Wolf is a peculiar tennis player and not only because of his ‘look’. He is one of the few who continues to play in a sleeveless shirt. At 26 minutes the victory train had escaped. The score reflected 3-1 for the Spanish, who knew the importance of not spending more time on the sand than strictly necessary. For him it would be the set.

The workers watered the playing surface. The El Palmar tennis player took the opportunity to talk to the bench about him.

With two rounds up for him on the scoreboard, the duel was stopped to close the cover due to the appearance of rain, a regular guest at the French Open.

Two days of rest

The champion of two majors, something atypical in the ‘Grand Slam’, will enjoy two days of rest before the second round against the winner of the match between Jesper de Jong and Jack Draper.
