Tennis. Indian goods. The final. Alcaraz-Medvedev. Direct

On the night of Sunday to Monday, Moscow time, in Indian Wells (California, USA) the last match of the Masters – BNP Paribas Open series tournament will take place. Russian Daniil Medvedev and Spaniard Carlos Alcaras will compete for the prestigious trophy. Both in the recent past were in the status of the world’s first racket. Both have won the Grand Slam tournament once. And right now, Medvedev and Alcaraz are perhaps the strongest tennis players on the planet.

By the way, in case of victory today, Carlos Alcaras, 19, will regain the title of first racket in the world. He will overtake Serbian Novak Djokovic in the ATP rankings, who became the best in the world after winning the 2023 Australian Open. Daniil Medvedev will remain in 5th place in the ATP rankings in any case. However, if the Russian can perform successfully at the next Masters, which will be held next week in Miami, then he will approach Norwegian Kasper Ruud, if not bypass him.

Today’s final is the most important match for both tennis players. Medvedev has not known the bitterness of a defeat on tour for a month and a half. Daniel’s winning streak is 19 games. Because of the 27-year-old Russian, three titles obtained in three consecutive tournaments. And of course he dreams of a fourth title, notably at the Indian Wells Masters.

Carlos Alcaraz missed the opening tournaments of the season due to injury. Being the first racket in the world, he was unable to play at the Australian Open. The Spaniard recently returned to the pitch and in a short time he was able to return to near-optimal form. What can I say, the 19-year-old Spanish prodigy is now the youngest best tennis player on the circuit.

On the eve of the final, the two athletes spoke to each other respectfully. Alcaraz noted that Medvedev is currently the strongest tennis player on the planet, but he is ready to fight Daniil. In turn, the Russian said that when Alcaraz plays he has no equal and it is impossible to stop him. All these comments from the athletes indicate that we are going to have a great final.

To the above, let’s add that Medvedev and Alcaras played each other only once. Almost two years ago, tennis players met at Wimbledon. Then, in the second round match, Daniil beat 17-year-old Carlos in three sets – 6:4, 6:1, 6:2.
