0 Shares

On today’s Social Slice, Carlos Alcaraz joins an elite club after his victory against Stefanos Tsitsipas and Naomi Osaka is stunned after losing in the third round.

Firstly, 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz lit up New York with the biggest win of his career so far against the third seed.

Alcaraz now joins a very impressive club as he becomes the youngest player to reach the US Open fourth round since Michael Chang and Pete Sampras in 1989. Not bad company to be in.

Jamie Murray also enjoyed Alcaraz’ performance, especially as he eliminated the player who has an ongoing fued with Andy Murray.

Alcaraz wasn’t the only 18-year-old to light up Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Leylah Annie Fernandez also produced an inspired performance to oust defending champion Naomi Osaka.

The future is very bright for these two.

Four-time Major winner Osaka cut a very frustrated figure against the Canadian teenager.

The Japanese star took out her frustration on her racket after failing to serve for the match.

If there was a player who was born to entertain, it would be Frances Tiafoe.

The American prevailed in a five-set thriller against Andrey Rublev and celebrated in style in front of his home crowd.
