Carlos Alcaraz will now face another rising star, 21-year-old Félix Auger-Aliassime, for a spot in the elimination rounds after the Canadian crushed Frances Tiafoe in four sets on Sunday.

As indicated by Alcatraz, this is a little glimpse of heaven, and desires to play more quarterfinals of grand slams. He further said:

I didn’t expect to play quarterfinals here. So I think it’s a really good performance from me in these matches.”

Alcaraz won his first ATP Tour title in July, beating Richard Gasquet in the last of the Croatian Open, and furthermore reached the third round at the French Open.

The young man had already produced the shock of the tournament so far by beating defending champion Naomi Osaka in the previous round but followed up that win with another dazzling performance.
