Carlos Alcaraz v Casper Ruud: 2022 US Open Men’s Tennis Final Live!

Pre-match interview Casper Ruud, and the question has something to do with the fact that he was also in the Roland Garros final. It doesn’t offer too much other than it’s been a great year.

Carlos Alcaraz he is asked about the prospect of being the youngest player to hold the top spot and how he says he has “no time to get tired” after his epic games so far. He agrees.

Time for the national anthem. Those of the US, that is. Not Norway or Spain. Do they do it at Wimbledon, Roland Garros or the Australian Open? just curious

Aiden Doyle replies: “Download the US Open app and there is a radio stream. It works in the UK and the commentary is excellent.”

I already have mail, a simple request for information about a British radio broadcast of this men’s final. Can someone who is not in the US help?

A general question about the Davis Cup, the Billie Jean King Cup (formerly the Fed Cup), and the Olympics: US collegiate tennis, which attracts a considerable number of international and American players, has a team format with six singles players and three doubles teams. Doubles matches are played first, and whichever team wins two of the three matches gets one point. Each individual match is also worth a point.

Would this be a better format than what we have now in the Davis and Billie Jean King cups? Would a team format make the Olympics more interesting?

Or what about the format for World Team Tennis (which is being scrapped in 2022)? This has men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles, all played seven to five instead of six, with each match worth one point in the team score. (So ​​a shutout would be 25-0.)

In other events…

The women’s doubles has just concluded, with Barbora Krejcikova i Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic defeating the USA Taylor Townsend i Cathy McNally 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.

The men’s wheelchair singles were also wrapped up today, with the second seed Alfie Hewitt of Britain defeating the first leader Shingo Kunieda from Japan

The top finishers are also in the women’s individual wheelchair at Louis Armstrong Stadium, with Japan. Yui Kamiji leading the Netherlands Diede de Groot. Later in Armstrong, it’s another clash of the top two seeds in the singles quads – a matchup of the 19-year-old Netherlands. Niels Vink i Sam Schroder.

Vink and Schroder teamed up earlier to win the quad doubles event. We had another case of a doubles pair in the singles final in the boys’ wheelchair events, with a 17-year-old. Ben Bartram from Norwich defeating a 17-year-old Dahnon neighborhood of Keyworth in singles but teaming up to win the doubles event.

How did they get here…

Ruud passed the Briton Kyle Edmundbeat Tim van Rijthoven in four sets, then needed four hours and 23 minutes to beat the US Tommy Paul – and that was with a fifth set 6-0. His victory in the fourth round against the French Corentin Moutet It was a bit quicker: 6-1, 6-2, 6-7, 6-2. Ruud followed it up with a straight win over Italy Matteo Berrettini in the quarterfinals and a solid three-hour win Karen Khachanovspoiling the career of the man he spoiled Nick Kyrgios‘race to the quarter-finals.

Alcaraz climbed El Capitan, solved Fermat’s Last Theorem, negotiated lasting peace in the Middle East and defeated national favorite Frances Tiafoe.

At least that looks like as if his exploits in the early rounds had been so arduous. It started with straight wins over a pair of Argentines: Sebastian Baez i Federico Coria – and beat a 21-year-old American Jenson Brooksby.

Then it got interesting:

3 hours and 54 minutes to beat those of Croatia Marin Cilic 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.

5 hours and 15 minutes to beat that of Italy Jannik Sinner 6-3, 6-7, 6-7, 7-5, 6-3.

4 hours and 19 minutes to win in the USA Frances Tiafoe 6-7, 6-3, 6-1, 6-7, 6-3.

He’s still only 19 years old, which means he’s spent about half his life on the court at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Who is number 1?

We’ll know in two hours. Or three Or five Probably midnight anyway.

If you don’t know the names Casper Ruud i Carlos Alcaraz — Well, first of all, you missed a big tournament. But moving forward, you’re sure to recognize these names, and you should start by knowing that today’s winner will not only take home the US Open title, but the top ranking in the world.

Alcaraz looks like the face of the future. He’s only 19, but he’s already got a dizzying array of shots and a bottomless gas tank.

(Wait, isn’t a bottomless gas tank bad? Wouldn’t that be a big spill? And why use fossil fuels? Maybe a rechargeable battery?)

Ruud, however, is much more than a speed bump on Alcaraz’s path to promotion. He has nine career titles, although eight are on clay. This matchup will surely be repeated many times over the years, especially at Roland Garros.

So get comfy, order some pizza (New York-style, of course, in honor of the occasion, but also because Chicago-style pizza is actually a casserole) and get on with it as this impressive tournament draws to a close.

Beau will be here shortly. Meanwhile, here’s Tumaini Carayol on what will likely be an absorbing contest:

Over the course of an intense, chaotic and entertaining US Open semifinal between Carlos Alcaraz and Frances Tiafoe, as their combined creativity, athleticism and joy merged to create entertainment in its purest form, Alcaraz absorb so many blows. He conceded a difficult first-set tiebreaker with a double fault, and after establishing his dominance, he couldn’t hold on. Alcaraz continuously lost his serve, failed to get a match point and found himself in a fifth set.

There were so many moments when the momentum could have swung dangerously, but as much as the match twisted, it maintained its intensity until the end. Throughout the three straight five-set battles that have taken him to the final, that resilience has been his defining characteristic. He will find it very difficult to put him away as he faces Casper Ruud for the US Open men’s title on Sunday.

Together, they have crafted a fascinating scenario that marks a stark contrast to the years of dominance of the big three. Not only will Ruud and Alcaraz be competing for their first Grand Slam title in the final, but the world No. 1 ranking is also on the line. It’s rare enough for players to reach the world summit for the first time after winning a slam. The most recent event in the men’s game came when Novak Djokovic won Wimbledon in 2011, his third major.

The obstacles for Ruud are clearly numerous. Despite reaching his second Grand Slam final of the season, Ruud has never beaten a top-10 opponent in a Grand Slam tournament – what a time to finally do it. They met in a grand final earlier this year at the Miami Open, a first Masters 1000 final for both, and although Alcaraz had yet to crack the top 15, he won in straight sets.
