Alcaraz improves in precocity to Nadal, Djokovic and Federer in victories in Grand Slam

The Murcian has already added victories in the final phase of the four Grand Slam with 18 years, 3 months and 25 days, surpassing the marks of Nadal, Djokovic and Federer.


Carlos Alcaraz continues to break precocity records in his debut in the final draw of the US Open. After his victory against the British Cameron Norrie, the young Murcian tennis player has become one of the youngest to have achieved at least one victory in the final draw of the four Grand Slam at 18 years, 3 months and 25 days.

Alcaraz has achieved this feat during this 2021 season, when he won in the first round of the Australian Open the Dutch Botic Van de Zandschulp, world number 151; at Roland Garros also Spanish Bernabé Zapata (128); at Wimbledon the Japanese Yasutaka Uchiyama (116); and now in the US Open to the British Cameron Norrie, number 26 in the world.In this way Alcaraz surpasses Rafa Nadal in precocity, who managed to win in the final draw of the four Grand Slam with 18 years, 11 months and 20 days after winning at Wimbledon 2003 to the Croatian Mario Ancic (68 of the world), in the US Open that year to the Spanish Fernando Vicente (61), in the 2004 Australian Open to the Czech Michal Tabara (215) and, finally, at Roland Garros in 2005 to the German Lars Burgsmuller (96) .

Above the age of 19, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer managed to complete their winning poker in the four Grand Slam. The Serbian achieved it with 19 years, 7 months and 24 days after winning at Roland Garros 2005 to the American Robby Ginepri (71 of the world), in Wimbledon of that year to the Argentine Juan Monaco (68), in the US Open of that year to the Gael Monfils (43) and had to wait for the 2007 Australian Open to close this milestone with his victory against the Chilean Nicolás Massú (43 in the world).The oldest of the Big Three to win the four Grand Slam has been the Swiss Roger Federer, who did it at 19 years, 10 months and 17 days. Federer beat American Michael Chang (38th in the world) at the Australian Open in 2000, Australian Wayne Arthurs (106) at Roland Garros (106), at the 2000 US Open against Dutchman Peter Wessels (89) and he achieved close this achievement at Wimbledon 2001 by defeating Belgian Oliver Rochus (83). Alcaraz himself played down this fact in the press conference after his previous match but admitted that "this means that I am doing things well." Only time will tell if Alcaraz also manages to catch up with these three tennis giants.
