This remarkable feat has fueled the anticipation for their face-off in Cincinnati, where Alcaraz’s resilience and knack for winning despite challenges have been evident. Although Alcaraz’s performance struggles and subpar breakpoint conversion rate resurfaced, his mental strength and consistent solutions have propelled him to the finals, where he is set to face Djokovic once again.
