Another presentation for the destination Carlos Alcaraz in Buenos Aires looking to reach the semifinals in their first tournament of the season. Murcia’s debut against Serbia’s Laslo Djere was a positive one, although he had understandable ups and downs as it was his first official match in over 100 days. His rival was already a veteran Dusan Lajovic, also from Serbia, who came on a much wider route throughout the week. His path in the tournament started in the previous stage by defeating the local Renzo Olivo and the Brazilian Felipe Meligeni Alves, while later, already in the main series, he defeated the Argentinians Sebastián Báez and Camilo Ugo Carabelli, who came to Córdoba as champions. .

There was already a previous confrontation between these two, with Alcaraz leads the record 1-0. This duel took place at the 2022 Australian Open, which the Spaniard won in three sets.

Alcaraz, in the top four of Buenos Aires

A disastrous start to the game for Charly who looked very much on fire and set up a break at his first opportunity. The Spaniard would even have chances to increase the lead, but Lajovic managed to save three break points to lower the score. A game that would be key because there a certain hole would be freed up by Alcaraz, who gave up his serve to leave it all tied. Although he took the lead again, another Balkan break put things back to 4 even. But as often happens with big players, Alcaraz put pressure on the other side of the net and won the first set 6-4.

Lajovic played at a high level, but it was not enough against the quality of Alcaraz. The world No. 2 started the second set almost as well as the first, again leading 3-0 and clenching his fists hard with every point won. The crowd clearly turned to Carlitos as an added bonus to everything Murcia gave on the field. The Serbian objected, even though everything was already written. In the end, Alcaraz sealed the victory with a final score of 6-2.
