Alcaraz Impresses With Confident Performance To Reach Wimbledon Quarter-Finals

Alcaraz Impresses With Confident Performance To Reach Wimbledon Quarter-Finals

by Zachary Wimer

Defending champion Carlos Alcaraz looked very champion-like at times, as he bested Ugo Humbert in four sets.

The Spanish have historically proven to be far better sailors than the French, and Alcaraz certainly sailed past the Frenchman in this match at times, beating him in four sets. It could have been a trickier match because Humbert can play some really good tennis, as he showed in the third set.

He has a good serve and hits the forehand really well; however, none of that bothered the World No. 3. After having some troubles in his previous matches, Alcaraz finally played a match without much trouble, at least it seemed to be that way early on.

Even if he dropped the third set, it was a quick one, and it was just too good from Humbert. At the end of the day, he's in the quarter-final, looking to go even further.

It was a fairly simple affair, though not perfect once more. The opening set saw Alcaraz take an early break, which helped him ease himself into the match.

From there, it was a simple cruise to the finish line, as Humbert didn't have the best control. The French player was the more aggressive player, but he also missed more, which hurt him in the second set especially.

He had chances in that one but didn't use them, and Alcaraz escaped, winning the set 6-4. He finally used some of his chances in the third set, taking an early 3-1 lead, as Alcaraz was missing a bit too much.

Humbert would go on to win the set 6-1 after playing an impressive seven games in which he hit 13 winners while limiting his unforced errors to only two. The final set opened with an early break for Alcaraz, but that wouldn't be the end of it.

He was up a break twice and lost it both times. The third time proved the charm, as he was able to win the fourth set 7-5 and the match 6-3, 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 to reach the 2024 Wimbledon Championships quarter-finals.
