Carlos Alcaraz and Casper Ruud face off in the US Open men’s championship on Sunday, Sept. 11. The match will be live streamed on DirecTV Stream (free trial) and fuboTV (free trial.)
Sometimes, it can be hard to remember while watching Alcaraz compete at the U.S. Open that he is just 19.
He’ll hit a behind-the-back shot from the baseline — stunning enough, in itself — then gather himself seconds later to sprint forward for a backhand passing winner at the perfect angle. He’ll get to an opponent’s drop shot, race back to retrieve the next ball by flicking it while turned away from the net, run forward to get another drop shot, then sprint back yet again to slide while somehow twisting his body for a down-the-line forehand winner — all within one point.
The No. 3-seeded Alcaraz has been doing just that with regularity as he heads into a one-of-a-kind U.S. Open final on Sunday against No. 5-seeded Casper Ruud, a 23-year-old from Norway. There is so much at stake for both: This is the first Grand Slam final between two players eyeing both a first major championship and the ATP’s No. 1 ranking.
This will mark Alcaraz’s debut on the last day of a Slam. He is the youngest man in a final at Flushing Meadows since Pete Sampras won the 1990 U.S. Open at 19, and the youngest in any major title match since Nadal won the 2005 French Open at that age.
Those two guys turned out OK: Sampras retired with 14 Grand Slam trophies; Nadal has a men’s-record 22.
The US Open men’s championship between Carlos Alcaraz and Casper Ruud is at 3 p.m. (4 p.m. ET) Sunday, Sept. 11.
