Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Carlos Alcaraz on ousting Stefanos Tsitsipas in the US Open” – below is their description.
The Flushing Meadows crowd turned on the under-fire Greek star and booed him during his five-set loss to Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz, who prevailed 6-3 4-6 7-6 (2) 0-6 7-6 (5). The crowd were again unhappy as Tsitsipas left court after losing the third set before coming back to bagel Alcaraz in the fourth – a further example of the gamesmanship he has been accused of. Tsitsipas has labelled those ‘completely false’ and says he has been made the villain ‘for no reason’. While Tsitsipas was left defending himself, Alcaraz was basking in a ‘dream come true’. The Spaniard has already been hailed as Rafael Nadal’s successor and he seized his chance on the big stage in superb fashion.Daily Mail YouTube Channel
