Carlos Alcaraz Ends Jannik Sinner’s Unbeaten Run at Indian Wells

Indian Wells

March 17, 2024

Carlos Alcaraz came back from apparent oblivion to reach the Indian Wells final, where he will meet Daniil Medvedev just like last year.

The reigning Wimbledon and Indian Wells champion looked down and out against this year’s finest player, Jannik Sinner.

But the Spaniard found a way to prevail 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 as the Italian’s forehand fell apart and he began to nurse niggling little injuries.

Meanwhile brilliant American Tommy Paul fought hard against Medvedev and got off to a scintillating start. But he couldn’t maintain his momentum any better than Sinner.

And so Daniil earned the right to play Alcaraz in the showpiece after winning through 1-6, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2.

Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner will be the ones to watch at Wimbledon 2024. But don’t be surprised if Daniil Medvedev and Tommy Paul go deep too.

Sinner hadn’t been beaten all year when he came up against Alcaraz in the first, rain-interrupted semi-final. And that’s how he played early on, securing the first set in little more than half an hour of actual playing time.

But Alcaraz wasn’t about to be swept away like rain off the shiny Indian Wells surface. And he was rightly proud of the way he reacted.

‘I showed a lot of mental strength and I found a way to stay in rallies,’ Carlitos said of his comeback. He also picked just the right moments to end those longer exchanges.

Most of all, Alcaraz relaxed into the guts of the contest better. He actually seemed to be enjoying the occasion more.

Even when Carlos lost the most spectacular point of the match – a superhuman joust using impossibly acute angles up at the net – he just smiled and went back to work.

Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner are likely to put on unforgettable displays on Centre Court at Wimbledon 2024.

But Alcaraz lasted the course better at Indian Wells to protect his world number two ranking in the desert.

And Sinner began to nurse his right knee and then his arm and wrist after a heavy fall. His unforced errors increased accordingly.

Yet we left this super-show knowing the future of tennis is safe with these two extraordinary gladiators.

Wimbledon 2024 will be even more dramatic as Alcaraz and Sinner take tennis to a new level.
