The 2023 ATP Madrid Open came to an end on Sunday, May 7, with Carlos Alcaraz becoming the champion for the second time in a row after beating German lucky-loser Jan-Lennard Struff in the final.

Alcaraz started the match on a fine note, breaking Struff’s serve in the first game. The German fought back to go level on the serve in the fourth service game of the first set, but Alcaraz produced another break and closed the set 6-4.

Struff’s aggressive style of play helped him to rush to a 3-0 lead in the second set, which he took 6-3, becoming the first player to win a set against Carlos in a masters 1000 final. But Alcaraz woke up in the third, breaking to lead 3-1 and taking the set 6-3.

The victory was the fourth ATP Masters 1000 trophy for Alcaraz, who became the youngest world No 1 last September when he won the US Open.

For me, it is so special,” he said. “To lift the trophy here in Madrid. In my country. It is always special to play and to be able to do a good result here and be a champion is so special. In front of my home crowd, my family, my friends.

The Spaniard became the sixth-youngest player to reach 10 tour-level titles in the Open Era. And there’s more. Alcaraz is just the third man ever to win his first four Masters 1000 finals, since the Masters 1000 level began in 1990. The Spaniard will become the No.1 seed in the coming Roland Garros, later this month if he appears in Rome1000 later this week.
