Carlos Alcaraz (42nd in the world) beat this Wednesday to Andy Murray (156 °) for the second round of the ATP 500 in Vienna, with partials of 6-3 and 6-4. The Spaniard became the second youngest player to defeat the former world No. 1.
Alcaraz, born on May 5, 2003, is 18 years and 5 months old, compared to 34 for Sir Andy (May 15, 1987). And he is the second youngest to beat the Scotsman, only behind Borna Coric, who was 18 years and 3 months in Dubai 2015.
Alcaraz is going through the year when his career took off, in which he got into the Top 100, played all four Grand Slam tournaments (quarterfinals in the US Open), won his first title (Umag) and defeated a Top 10 (Stefanos Tsitsipas). With the victory against Murray, who had defeated him in the first round of the Indian Wells Masters 1000, the Spaniard reached 24 victories in the year.
