Carlos Alcaraz is 406th in the ATP ranking. He’s only 16 years old. As a Spaniard, he likes to play on the ground the most. Before the competition in Rio de Janeiro, Alcaraz played great at the ITF tournament in Antalya, where he managed to reach the final.
In the first round of the current tournament in Rio de Janeiro, the Spaniard probably won one of the most significant victories in his career. In three sets, the young Spaniard defeated his compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas (7-6, 4-6, 7-6).
16-year-old Carlos Alcaraz Garcia makes the whole tennis world talk about himself. Nobody is indifferent to great talents. At such a young age, this athlete has already repeated or rewritten many records. But it seems that the year 2020 could be a real breakthrough for Carlos. And the organizers of the tournament in Rio de Janeiro were just the first to give him a wild card to the main grid of the ATP Tour.
Carlos Alcaraz Garcia used this special invitation 100% already. In his debut match, he fought for 3 and a half hours with his compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas, the former 17th racket of the world and the current top 50 tennis player. It was a real thriller match in which Alcaraz Garcia won 7-6 4-6 7-6 in 3 and a half hours. And the match ended at 3:00 AM local time! It was unbelievable in every way.
In his 16th, Carlos showed not only class and skill on the court, but also the will to win. He lost the second set and lost 0-3 in the third game, with a score of 0-40 on his serve. But in the end, El Palmar’s native broke the game and won a much more experienced and sophisticated opponent in a tie-break game.
In the ATP ranking Carlos Alcaraz Garcia is the only tennis player of his age in the top 500. He started the week as the world’s 406th racket. Now he’ll be 313. And if he wins over Federico Coria, he will make his debut in the top 270! That’s a straight line and the way Rafael Nadal was going.
Federico Coria will never get a career like his rival in the second round of the tournament in Rio. He’s talked about as Guillermo Coria’s brother, former top 10 tennis player in the ATP ranking. Federico himself has never risen above 115, but he is 27 years old. However, due to his success in Rio, the Argentinean will still update his personal record and will be at least 106th. But even victory over the Spaniard would not allow him to debut in the top 100.
While Carlos Alcaraz Garcia won three Futures titles in his 16th career, Federico Coria won 8 Futures and 1 Challenger in his 27th career.
Although this seems obvious and self-evident to many, it should be noted that Federico Coria is a profile primer. He has played over 400 matches on the Futures, and only two of them are off the ground. The trends on the Challengers are similar.
At the current competition in Rio de Janeiro, the Argentine had three fights. In qualification Federico beated the Spaniard Carlos Taberner (7-6, 6-1) and Slovak Josef Kovalik (6-2, 6-4).
In the first round, Coria defeated Corenin Moutet from France in three games (1-6, 7-6, 7-6).
