Carlos Alcaraz knocks down Musetti and advances to the quarterfinals in Beijing


The Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz has advanced to the quarterfinals of the Beijing tournament, of the ATP 500 category and played on a hard court, after successfully beating the Italian Lorenzo Musetti this Sunday (6-2, 6-2), and begins to stalk the number one in the world again.

The Murcian, number two in the ATP ranking and who returns to action in Asian lands after three weeks of absence from the circuit, scored two breaks in the third and fifth games of the initial set to win the set, in which he had to defend against two breaking balls in the last game.

Already in the second set, he broke the transalpine’s service and neutralized a subsequent break opportunity from his rival, to get his victory back on track with another break in the fifth game before closing the contest in one hour and 21 minutes.

Now, the one from El Palmar will face the Norwegian Casper Ruud, number nine in the world, in his quarterfinal duel, who defeated the Argentine Tomás Etcheverry in three sets (1-6, 7-5, 7-6(7)).
