A Positive Perspective on Tennis’s Future

Carlos Alcaraz roared into the ATP Finals semi-finals to set up a mouthwatering clash with the world No 1 Novak Djokovic after overcoming Daniil Medvedev on Friday. The Spaniard needed to win to guarantee his progress and he made light work of the Russian to put him in contention to face Djokovic.

It will be the second time Alcaraz and Djokovic have faced each other since the epic Wimbledon final, where the 24-time Grand Slam winner was defeated. He got his revenge at the Cincinnati Masters and embarked on a 19-match winning run before losing to Sinner in Turin, but with the head-to-head finely poised at 2-2, it promises to be an exciting clash.

Kyrgios drops doubles partner Kokkinakis in it Nick Kyrgios has been accused of dropping his doubles partner into it as he opened up on his Australian Open memories with Thanasi Kokkinakis. The pair stormed to the 2022 title after defeating Matthew Ebden and Max Purcell 7-5, 6-4 in an all-Australian final, and now player-turned-pundit Kyrgios has shone a light on what happened off the court during their road to victory.

“He (Kokkinakis) was having a good time,” Kyrgios joked to the Tennis Channel. “I was doing ice baths in the morning, getting up at 7 a.m. doing, like, chipped returns in doubles and I’m like, ‘What am I doing here?’

“I was the only person at Melbourne Park practising and he was just rolling in from a night out. People would think it would be the reverse. People would be like, ‘Kyrgios is the one that’s going out.

Alcaraz dreaming of Djokovic win Carlos Alcaraz has said he is dreaming of a maiden ATP Finals triumph after being drawn against Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals.

The Spaniard was in a bullish mood after sweeping aside Danill Medvedev in straight sets, winning 6-4, 6-4, and now wants glory in Turin after making it through.

“Well, it’s just two matches, but at the same time it’s too far away. I have Novak in the semi-final. If I win that match, I have a really tough final,” Alcaraz told reporters.

“I’m dreaming about winning this tournament. Why not? But I have to play my best first in the semi-final.”
