Carlos Alcaraz won the Madrid Open and won his fourth title in 2022

MADRID (AP) —Carlos Alcaraz ended another impressive week with a straight victory over Alexander Zverev on Sunday, winning the Madrid Open and becoming the second youngest player to win two Masters 1000 titles.

After defeating their idol Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals and first-placed Novak Djokovic in the semifinals, the Spanish teen sensation comfortably defeated third-placed Zverev 6-3, 6-1.

Zverev was trying to win his second consecutive Madrid title, and his third overall.

“You are currently the best player in the world,” Zverev told 19-year-old Alcaraz. “Even though you’re still 5 years old, you’re still beating us all, it’s so nice to see tennis that we have such a new superstar who will win many Grand Slams, who will be number 1 and is going to win this tournament many times.”
