Spanish Tennis player Carlos Alcaraz won the Madrid Open as he beat German tennis star Alexander Zverev in the Final in straight sets. Alcaraz took the game 6-3, 6-1 to win his second ATP masters 1000 title. He stunned World No.3 in one hour and two minutes.

Alcaraz showed great class to beat Zverev in two sets. He never allowed his opponent to settle and impressed everyone with his performance at the Manolo Santana court. The 19-year-old Spaniard proved too hot to handle for the 25-year-old German.

Notably, Alcaraz had beaten World No.1 Novak Djokovic and World No.4 Rafael Nadal in the semifinal and quarterfinal to book himself a place in the final. While he cruised over Djokovic with a 6-7(5-7), 7-5, 7-6 (7-5) win, he defeated Nadal 6-2, 1-6, 6-3.

Reigning US Open champion and Brit Tennis star Emma Raducanu has called Alcaraz's performance at the Madrid Open inspirational for everyone. "I think it's incredible what he's doing right now. Being so young and being so consistent is really impressive. I think the way that he moves is really gracious and elegant. If you watch him, it just looks like he's flying through the air," Raducanu has said.
