US Open: Carlos Alcaraz Garfia wins quarterfinals with this trick against Jannik Sinar
Spain's Carlos Alcaraz Garfia advanced to the semi-finals of the US Open after a brilliant five-set performance against Jannik Sinar in a match at Flushing Meadows.
The tennis world was in awe at the quarterfinal performance, which ended at around 3 a.m. local time,
officially making it the longest-running play at the US Open in 141 years.
"It was a match for the ages," Todd Woodbridge said on the Nine Network's coverage. "It was only a quarterfinal, it deserved a final."
The thrilling 5-hour 15-minute duel saw the 19-year-old Alcaraz claim his deserved spot in the last four
setting up a showdown with Frances Tiafo of the United States on Friday.
The previous record for the latest closing of a US Open match was 2:26 pm, three times previously set.
Incredibly, this was the first second of an early-morning finale for Alcaraz this week.
