Tennis promises Carlos Alcaraz and Giulio Zeppieri had a blast during their semi-final match on Saturday! The 2 talents entertained the spectators from the 1st second in the 1st set, with this special point as the absolute highlight!
The rally was not overly long and counted ‘only’ 20 strokes. That relatively low number did not detract from the level shown. Both 19-year-old Alcaraz and 20-year-old Italian did their utmost to return the ball and thus win the point.
Punt Alcaraz vs Zeppieri
The ‘super point’ in the Goran Ivanisevic stadium eventually went to Zeppieri, the number 168 in the world. Alcaraz, the number 5 in the global ranking, could only look in disbelief after the lost point.
The Spaniard later took the game to himself and reached the final in Croatia. He defeated Zeppieri 7-5, 4-6 and 6-3.
