Carlos Alcaraz of Spain has built upon his ATP 500 win in Rio to winning his first Masters 1000 title in Miami, all before turning 19 years old. In his first full season as a top 100 player, the Spaniard continued his breakout year as he defeated Casper Ruud of Norway 7-5, 6-4 to win the Miami Open, his third title.
With this victory, the Rolex Testimonee is the third youngest ATP Masters 1000 champion in history, behind Nadal and Michael Chang, and the youngest to win in the tournament's 37 year history. He has an astounding record this year of 18 wins and two defeats, having won 28 of his last 31 sets, two of which were taken by Nadal himself.
In Miami alone, Alcaraz toppled three top-10 opponents with wins against the No 5 Stefanos Tsitsipas, the defending champion Hubert Hurkacz and Ruud.
