Carlos Alcaraz Wimbledon 2022

Can Carlos Alcaraz build on US Open win at ATP World Tour Finals

2022 has been an incredible year for teenage sensation Carlos Alcaraz. Originally dubbed as a clay court specialist, Alcaraz has defied many naysayers to come of age on the ATP Tour over the past 12 months.

Undoubtedly, the two highlights of a star-studded season for Alcaraz have been his maiden Grand Slam singles title win at the US Open in New York in September and that performance, saw Alcaraz climb to the top of the ATP World Tour rankings.

With coach Juan Carlos Ferrero in his corner, Carlos Alcaraz clearly comes from elite tennis playing stock and his relationship with fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal appears to be affecting his game positively.

Solid showings at both the French Open and Wimbledon were also serious feathers in the cap for Alcaraz, who is now having to navigate an increased profile off the court too.

With a game style that belies his tender age, Alcaraz is creative and resilient in equal measure and he looks to be spearheading the next generation of tennis playing talent into the post Federer, Djokovic, and Nadal era.

Concluding the 2022 ATP Tour calendar is the Tour Finals event, which is scheduled to start in Turin next month, having moved away from its long-time home at the O2 Arena in London.

Alongside the likes of Casper Ruud, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, Alcaraz will be all too aware of the task at hand in Turin next month but nothing seems to faze the 19 year old too much.

Carlos Alcaraz is +600 to win his maiden ATP World Tour Finals event, which would be a fitting finish to an incredible breakout season.

Topping the betting as ever in any indoor, hard court event is Novak Djokovic, with the Serb known for his proficiency on the surface.

Winning Wimbledon, one of only two Grand Slams played by the Serb this year, was a decent return for Djokovic but he will be seriously chasing a 6th ATP World Tour Finals crown.

At +350 odds with NY sportsbooks, Novak Djokovic starts as the strong favorite to lift the trophy again in 2022.

Rafael Nadal currently sits at the top of the ATP World Tour rankings and how he would love to finish the season strongly.

Two Grand Slams at the Australian Open and the French Open, have taken Nadal’s overall tally to 22 – making him currently the most successful men’s tennis player of all time.

Finishing the season with a win in Turin would be the icing on the cake and he is +500 to win the 2022 ATP World Tour Finals title.

Elsewhere, the likes of Casper Ruud and Stefanos Tsitsipas will be chasing glory, in what has become the unofficial 5th Grand Slam.

Norwegian Ruud has enjoyed a great year and he looks to be in contention at +650, whilst 2019 champion Stefanos Tsitsipas will be chasing a repeat performance here in 2022 at +800.
