Carlos Alcaraz beats Jannik Sinner to set up French Open final with Alexander Zverev

Carlos Alcaraz has booked his place in the French Open final after beating Italian Jannik Sinner 2-6 6-3 3-6 6-4 6-3 in their semifinal encounter. Alcaraz, who is only 19 years old, will face either Alexander Zverev or Casper Ruud in the final after their match was halted due to darkness.

The semifinal between Alcaraz and Sinner was a thriller that lasted for 4 hours and 9 minutes. Both players suffered injuries during the match, with Alcaraz suffering from cramp and Sinner receiving treatment for muscle pain. However, the young Spaniard managed to come back from 2-1 down to win the match and book his place in the final.

If Alcaraz wins the final, he will become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the Grand Slam. This result also means that Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer will not be in the French Open final for the first time since 2004.

Regarding the other semifinal between Zverev and Ruud, Zverev managed to beat his Norwegian opponent 2-6 6-2 6-4 6-2 to set up a showdown with Alcaraz. This will be the first time that Zverev and Alcaraz have faced each other in a competitive match.

Overall, the men's singles final of the French Open promises to be a mouth-watering clash between two of the future stars of men's tennis.
