Carlos Alcaraz v Hugo Gaston Head to Head
The pair have never played each other before. This will be the first meeting between the 18-year old Spaniard and the Frenchman, who is three years older.
Alcaraz Wins Battle of Young Stars
Having battled past Pierre-Hugues Herbert of France in the first round, Alcaraz’s match with Jannik Sinner on Tuesday was eagerly awaited, although there were questions why it was scheduled for Court Number 2 in Paris, and not Centre Court.
Sinner, the winner of four tournaments this year has just debuted in the top ten, whilst Alcaraz has had an equally memorable season, where he has been compared to a young Rafael Nadal.
With the pair already having booked their place in the NextGen ATP Finals in Milan, it was the chance of one of them to lay down a marker. In the end it was Alcaraz, dealing potentially a fatal blow to Sinner’s hopes of qualifying for the ATP finals,
The match began with the pair swapping breaks, but then it settled down and went to a tie-break. And Alcaraz proved much the stronger of the two and took it easily.
In the second set, the Spaniard successfully defended six break points against his own serve and the value of that was proved when he forced a break of his own.
From there it was a simple task to save out for the match.
Qualifier Gaston Cheers Home Crowd
Gaston beat Lorenzo Musetti in qualifying, and, although inexperienced at this level, begam by beating compatriot Arthur Rinderknech in three sets in the first round, to earn himself a much harder match with the Olympic bronze medallist and number 12 seed, Pablo Carreno-Busta of Spain.
The Spaniard was the first to drop his serve, but he recovered the break and it went to a tie-break, which Carreno-Busta eventually won.
The second set though became very scrappy with both men struggling to hold serve. However, gone a break up and within two games of winning the match, Carreno-Busta was broken in successive service games and Gaston had levelled the match.
The pair swapped breaks in the third set and the match seemed destined for a tie-break decider, when Pablo-Carreno-Busta on serve. He saved one match point, but not the second and Gaston could celebrate a famous victory in front of the Paris crowd.
Alcaraz v Gaston Prediction and Tip
Although Gaston will have the backing of the home crowd, nothing seems to upset the Spanish teenager, and he will be tipped to add another feather in his cap by reaching the quarter-finals.
