Carlos Alcaraz receives 10-word message from Novak Djokovic after US Open win

Alcaraz capped off his breakout season by winning his first Grand Slam title at the US Open, becoming the first teenager to lift a Major trophy since Rafael Nadal in 2005. Thanks to his victory in Flushing Meadows, he also became the new world No 1 and smashed Lleyton Hewitt’s previous record to become the youngest man ever to reach the top of the rankings.

The Spaniard has since received a hoard of messages from fellow players and others in the sporting world including from Nadal and Real Madrid FC, and Djokovic has now joined in sending Alcaraz a message. Taking to his Instagram story, the Serb reposted a photo of Alcaraz in Times Square with his US Open trophy and wrote: “Enhorabuena Carlos.

“Congratulations @carlitosalcarazz for your first Grand Slam. Amazing performance.” Alcaraz won their only previous meeting en route to the Madrid Masters earlier in the season, also earning his first victory over a world No 1 with Djokovic at the top of the rankings at the time.
