Djokovic defeated injured Alcaraz in the final

Desk Report:: Before the final, it was said that Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz were facing each other in the final. The heat died down when Alcaraz got injured midway through the semi-final match. Although he played the entire match, it was not enough to challenge Djokovic. As a result, 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1, the Serbian star, who has won 22 Grand Slams, put one step on the way to winning the French Open title.

Although behind in experience, the 36-year-old Djokovic’s fight with the 20-year-old Alcaraz was expected by tennis officials. It could have been if the young tennis star had not been injured. Alcaraz has won one Grand Slam so far.

The match started quickly. Djokovic holds the first two serves to lead 2-1. A crosscourt forehand winner by Djokovic in this game tells the audience that the match is going to be exciting. It was understood in the next game. Djokovic broke Alcaraz. But after the rally of 14 shots was over, no one could sit in their seats anymore. Drop shots from both players’ rackets. Djokovic has the last laugh.

The first set started at 59 minutes. More in the second set, 77 minutes. In other words, it took almost two and a half hours to complete the two sets. The way Alcaraz was fighting for every point, running effortlessly across the court, the 36-year-old Djokovic looked like it was going to be a tough match. Who knew Alcaraz will be injured in the third set!

As a result, the kind of hard-fought battle that took place in the first two sets was not seen in the third set. Alcaraz already had to work extra hard due to running the whole court. He strained his right leg during the third game. Returning a shot did not land well. Physically he looked a bit devastated. Djokovic took full advantage of it. He broke the Spanish star. At this time, Alcaraz looks physically uncomfortable throughout the set. That became clear in Djokovic’s 6-1 win.

Same picture in the fourth set. There was concern that Alcaraz would give up the match. Because of the court coverage he’s known for, Alcaraz seemed to give up one ball after another. He could not reach the edge of the ball. As a result, the game becomes much easier for Djokovic. He didn’t have to suffer that much for points.

With this, Djokovic reached the French Open final for the seventh time. If he wins that match, the Serbian star will win the highest Grand Slam in tennis. With this, he will overtake Rafael Nadal as the joint-highest Grand Slam winner.
