Carlos Alcaraz beat Casper Ruud in the final at the Miami Open 2022 and became the first Spanish tennis player in history to win the Miami Masters 1000. Nadal never succeeded, who in the past went one step closer to victory in the match against Federer (the Swiss was down 2-0 and won in five sets).

This and not just for this guy who, day after day, destroys all the records that pass in front of him. Third in the Race and in the Top 10 of the youngest tennis players ever to win a 1000, shortly after Rafa and in front of legends such as Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

The tennis player is the third ever to win a Masters 1000 behind only Michael Chang and Rafael Nadal, a player whose footsteps he is retracing step by step. The young Iberian also surpasses Jannik Sinner in the standings and is now just a few points from entering the Top Ten, exceedingly anticipating the times.
Casper Ruud tried it and played an excellent final, his first in his career in a 1000, but he surrendered to Alcaraz and his varied tennis.

Good start for the Norwegian who advances with a break in the first games, also taking advantage of the understandable emotion of Alcaraz. After the initial 0-3, however, everything changes and the Spaniard begins to take advantage of his tennis, leaving no chance for the 23-year-old Nordic.

After the initial 1-4, Alcaraz brekka Ruud ties the score, then gets the decisive break with winners in the eleventh game. At the fourth set point in the next game he closes the first set 7-5. The Norwegian feels the blow as Carlos takes advantage of the moment and goes ahead by a double break.

Immediately 3 to 0 while Ruud seems to be in trouble, the Nordic takes advantage of a few too many mistakes from the Iberian and recovers at least one of the two breaks. He goes on with the two who keep the shifts and Ruud who doesn't give up.

The Spaniard, however, does not tremble and closes in the best possible way in just under two hours. It ends with the result of 7-5; 6-4 and Alcaraz is more and more in the history of tennis.
