It’s over. Carlos getting big boyed.

It’s all over. No one believed me, but I knew it deep down. It’s all over. Zverev’s FH firing like prime Soderling right now. He’s all over Carlos like a bad rash. No answers from the Spaniard.
Your posts are exhausting to read sometimes lol

I'm still debating whether this is supreme comedy or genuine agony

This is the difference between Alcaraz and Nadal. Even as a kid, Nadal was NEVER so mentally fragile. EVER. On any surface.
Alcaraz just totally let Zverev in the match by being sloppy. He's given Zverev confidence and completely LOST his own.
And now a double fault on breakpoint - means losing the plot COMPLETELY.
Can the "real" Alcaraz please stand up?

How has this guy not won multiple slams from 2020-2023 when Djokovic was murdering the nextgens and sweeping the tour. Its all in his head surely.

Not liking the Alcaraz body language. Seems nervous, doesn’t look confident. Probably a straight sets loss
That is horrendous not to break there. Step on the throat Carlos.

When he gets broken serving for the set don’t say I didn’t warn you. Ferrero doing nothing as per.
It’s all over. Zverev has solved his return positioning and found his serve rhythm. It’s over.

Carlos will never get another break look today.
Do you have to do the StrongRule act? It's kind of embarrassing. Don't become StrongRule just because of gambler's remorse.

Alcaraz doesnt look like he has the heart to suffer..The Sinner game he knew sinner was injured . Zverev could absolutely destroy him here, Alcaraz has gone mentally

Carlos is getting involved in too many long rallies which just allows Zedrot to settle into a rhythm. He needs to go back to infinite and unpredictable variety, break up the rhythm. Go back to these tactics in the third set.

Not sure what has happened to Alcaraz, no doubt Zverev is playing well Carlos is tentative to say the least...
Z service has been the key. Just no chances in Z service games in set 2. Save your end of the bargain, gives a lot of confidence in return.

From the first point of the tournament against Rafa Zverev has been all business. He's a man on a mission, winning this tournament is his destiny. He's winning this

I think there’s no question who the better player is right now. It’s not even close really. This is pure bullying every single point.

Zverev absolutely dominant. Carlos, a scared little boy.

This is sad, but this is why I bet so big on Zverev. I knew he would win it all.
He was 2-1 down against Sinner but still won. He's very prone to peaks and troughs of form. If he can reset now it can be game on again (I'm hoping at least).

Alcaraz messes arounf showing off too much and im not sure that is fixable as he never seems to learn

He applies it well really, but just loses focus. He just became legal to buy alcohol in the USA, so I am sure he can develop and learn as he matures as a person and in tennis. The kid is working on owning all four surface GS titles already and is a top ranked player. Whatever he is doing is obviously not bad, but can incrementally be improved. But agree...Just wish he would break that up/down pattern a bit for sure!
