Alcaraz geschokt door Dimitrov op de Shanghai Masters

Canada heeft Australië verslagen in de finale van de Davis Cup in Malaga om het evenement voor het eerst in hun geschiedenis te winnen. Ze begonnen sterk toen Denis Shapovalov Thanasi Kokkinakis in straight sets versloeg met 6-2 6-4.

Wimbledon Kampioen Carlos Alcaraz suffered a shock defeat in the last 16 of the Shanghai Masters against Grigor Dimitrov. The top seed won the first set but was pegged back by his Bulgarian opponent who went on to win the match 5-7 6-2 6-4.

Beating World No 2 Alcaraz was the one of the biggest wins of Dimitrov’s career. He will now be looking to win his first ATP title since 2017. The 32-year-old will now face Chilean Nicolas Jarry in the quarter finals.

Alcaraz was hoping to finish the year as World No 1, however this latest result has put a dent in this ambition. Novak Djokovic currently holds the top rank position at the moment after winning three Grand Slams this year.
