Carlos Alcaraz defeated Tommy Paul 6-4, 6-4 to progress to the quarter-finals of the Miami Open – he showed his support for Fernando Alonso recently.
Carlos Alcaraz stormed through to the quarter-finals of the Miami Open with a comprehensive display but didn’t forget to leave his best wishes for fellow Spanish superstar Fernando Alonso.
After his win against Paul in Miami, Alcaraz grabbed a marker for the winners’ traditional post-match camera lens autograph, but instead of his signature, he wrote: ‘Como 33’. It is evident that Alcaraz left a message for Fernando Alonso, who has 32 Grand Prix wins to his name and will be gunning for his 33rd, this weekend in Melbourne.
Alcaraz is a big fan of Alonso and the F1 veteran’s good start to the season has certainly raised hopes of a great season. Meanwhile, Alcaraz was at his sublime best as he decimated the No.16 seed Tommy Paul in straight sets. The ATP World No.1 will now take on another American, 9th seed Taylor Fritz in the quarter-finals tomorrow. The teenager won the Indian Wells Masters earlier this month to regain the top spot in the men’s rankings and will now be looking to make it two out of two.
Fernando Alonso has made a dramatic start to the 2023 F1 season
Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso has made an epic start to the season, registering an incredible P3 finish in Bahrain followed by the one in Jeddah. The 41-year-old has now bagged 30 points from two races, showing the world that he has still got it in him to challenge the best in the grid and everyone can’t help but admire the Spaniard’s grit and determination.
The two-time World Champion joined Aston Martin from Alpine ahead of this season, with an ambition to take the world by storm and the project has certainly got off to an epic start.
In his illustrious career till date, Fernando Alonso has won two F1 world championships – 2005 and 2006 with Renault. In an F1 career spanning over 20 years, Alonso has driven for top tier teams like Renault, McLaren and Ferrari besides his former team, Alpine. The 41-year-old has registered 32 Grand Prix wins along with 100 podium finishes. He is certainly one of the greatest drivers in the sport and would look to reach new heights at Aston Martin, during what possibly is the final lap of his F1 career.
