Carlos Alcaraz’s back comeback was the highlight of his epic US Open win

A classic of modern tennis played into the early hours of the 2022 US Open men’s quarterfinals. No. 3 seed Carlos Alcaraz and no. No. 11 seed Jannik Sinner are two of the best young players in the world, and they gave the New York City crowd a game for the ages when Wednesday night turned into Thursday morning.

Alcaraz defeated Sinner 6-3, 6-7, 6-7, 7-5, 6-3 to put the 19-year-old Spaniard into the semifinal of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career. The game ended at 2:50 am ET, which is the last game the US has left. At 5 hours and 15 minutes, it is the second longest match in US Open history.

The match was not only historic in its length, but also featured an incredibly high level of play from two rising stars. At one point in the second set, Alcaraz won one of the best points you’ll ever see. He went behind her back to return Sinner’s volley, then dove across the court to crush a backhand winner. You have to see this for yourself:

That reminds me of Ja Morant’s poster dunk in the NBA Playoffs against the minnesota timber wolves: Young athletic brilliance put on full display in a big moment.

Alcaraz is now the youngest Grand Slam semi-finalist since fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal in 2005, as well as the youngest US Open semi-finalist since Pete Sampras in 1990.

Even Alcaraz couldn’t believe he pulled out the win:

Sinner, a 21-year-old Italian, had defeated Alcaraz in the Wimbledon round of 16 earlier this year. Sinner also defeated Alcaraz in the Umag final earlier this summer. Alcaraz took revenge on a big stage with everyone in awe of what happened.
