Tennis pro hits MIND-BENDING shot that sent the audience to their feet

During a quarterfinals marathon at the U.S Open, up-and-coming pro tennis player Carlos Alcaraz brought the U.S. Open audience to its feet with a stunning return.

Alcaraz’s next opponent could, however, end a losing streak for American men at the tournament if he defeats the 3rd seed, the highest seed still standing.

Even if you’re not a tennis fan, the behind-the-back, circus shot by Alcaraz, 19, that led to a point at around midnight Wednesday, is impressive indeed.

Alcaraz went on to win the classic and grueling, five-hour, singles contest over fellow budding star Jannik Sinner, 21, of Italy that ended at around 3 a.m. local time on Thursday morning, the latest finish in U.S. Open history, and the second longest in the tournament’s history.

According to ESPN, Alcaraz, who hails from Spain, is the youngest man to reach the semifinal in the U.S. Open since Pete Sampras. After it was all over, Alcaraz admitted that “Honestly, I still don’t know how I did it.”

Alcaraz’s next match is scheduled for Friday against America’s Frances Tiafoe.

Watch what some have called a gravity-defying shot:

An upset winner over superstar and 22-time Grand Slam champ Rafael Nadal in the tournament, 22-seed Tiafoe made more news by winning a hard-fought match of his own against Russia’s Andrew Rublev, a ninth seed.

“The 24-year-old from the Washington suburbs became the first American men’s player to advance to the U.S. Open semifinals since 2006,” the New York Post reported. “An American male hasn’t won [the U.S. Open] since 2003, when {Andy] Roddick took the title… Tiafoe became the first American male to make the semifinal of a major since John Isner in 2018 at Wimbledon.”

The U.S. Open is an annual event at the United States Tennis Association Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York City. The U.S. Open is the fourth and final so-called Grand Slam, i.e., professional tennis’ four major tournaments, of the year.

“Entering this year’s US Open, American men have gone 74 consecutive majors since Roddick won in 2003, which is the longest major title drought the U.S. men have had in tennis history,” ESPN recalled.

If Alcaraz winds up prevailing over Tiafoe and then goes on to defeat the winner of the match between Karen Khachanov-Casper Ruud, 27th and five seeds, respectively, he could become the youngest ever player to obtain a number-one world ranking in the sport.

“This is wild, crazy, biggest win of my life 24 hours ago and coming back with this,” Tiafoe said. “This court is unbelievable. I feel at home. Let’s enjoy this one, but we’ve got two more.”

Tennis luminary and 21-time Grand Slam champ Novak Djokovic was unable to compete this year because of he has declined to get the COVID-19 jab and thus was denied entry into the U.S. on a visa.
