“Ridiculous”: Carlos Alcaraz’s incredible point after falling on the grass in his victory over Ugo Humbert at Wimbledon

Carlos Alcaraz He beat the Frenchman 6-3, 6-4, 1-6 and 7-5 Ugo Humbert and advanced to the quarterfinals of Wimbledonon a central court that enjoyed several of his magic tricks. It took him three hours to win a hard-fought victory, in which he lost a set, but he showed his hierarchy in several passages; above all, in the action that determined the conquest of the second set.

Many already consider it the best point of Wimbledon 2024. Even the official account on X of the Grand Slam expressed his astonishment: “You are ridiculous”The sequence begins with the Frenchman’s serve. After an initial rally, Alcaraz slips and ends up sitting on the grass of the ‘Cathedral’, but returns the ball. Ugo Humbert sees him, and throws the ball to the other side of where he is. The Spaniard runs for it, with devilish speed, and arrives to touch it with his backhand, sending it like a lob to the other side of the net.

The Frenchman volleys softly to make a short ball, taking advantage of the fact that the Spaniard is at the back, who also arrives and hits a forehand that Humbert does not control, who knocks the ball out, overcome by the situation, by the resistance of an athletic machine. The ovation is thunderous for the defending champion and the latest winner at Roland Garros. Carlos raises his finger and goes back to his seat, moderate, without losing his humility.

Asked by former tennis player and now interviewer Annabel Croft on Centre Court after sealing his place in the quarter-finals, Carlos Alcaraz described his play as “incredible”.

“I just try to fight for every ball, every point, no matter where I am on the court, to try to give myself a chance to stay alive in the point. I want to show my opponent that no matter what shot he throws, I’m going to be there. That’s just me.”, he elaborated on the psychological significance of his run. Indeed, he then succumbed in the third round, but won the fourth, and the passage to the next round, after the dream of a second championship.

It was not the only sequence that aroused the astonishment of the public and those who manage the social media accounts of the traditional tournament that is played on grass. “Only more magic from Carlos Alcaraz,” the tournament in X highlighted when sharing a spectacular passing shot after a foray into the net by Humbert. “Truly unique”enthroned him.

The Iberian is waiting for the winner of the duel between the American Tommy Paul and the Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut.
