Carlos Alcaraz Shocked by Tommy Paul in Toronto Before US Open Defense

Unstoppable Tommy Paul

American Tommy Paul's remarkable victory over top-ranked Carlos Alcaraz at the National Bank Open has injected him with a surge of confidence as he gears up for the upcoming US Open. Paul's strategic prowess was on full display as he terminated Alcaraz's 14-match winning streak, securing his berth in the semifinals with a hard-fought 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 triumph on Friday night.

While Alcaraz showcased his prowess with an incredible between-the-leg winner during the second set, he ultimately succumbed to Paul's relentless play in the third. Paul's own assessment of the match emphasized his commitment to seizing control of the rallies and the significance of his first-strike tennis skills in clinching victory.

The Wimbledon champion, Alcaraz, lauded Paul's versatility and tenacity across all surfaces, acknowledging the formidable challenge he presents to opponents. Paul's triumphs over Alcaraz in both the current and past tournaments have emboldened his belief in his ability to conquer formidable opponents and approach each match with a resolute attitude.

Paul's next test will come against the seventh-seeded Jannik Sinner of Italy, who secured his own semifinal slot with a well-earned 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 win over Gael Monfils.

Meanwhile, a highly anticipated showdown emerged in the afternoon session as second-seeded Daniil Medvedev of Russia fell to Australia's Alex de Minaur in a closely contested 7-6 (7), 7-5 match. De Minaur's unwavering resolve and familiarity from a previous encounter with Medvedev fueled his impressive performance, which he credited to his strategic approach and precise execution.

De Minaur's next challenge will be Spain's Alejandro Davidovich Fokina, in a faceoff of unseeded competitors making their debut appearance in the Masters 1000 semifinals. Davidovich Fokina's solid 6-4, 6-2 victory over American Mackenzie McDonald signaled his strong form and determination.

As the tournament unfolds, the resilience, strategic acumen, and mental fortitude of these players continue to captivate fans and elevate the stakes in this exhilarating competition.
