ATP: world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz eliminated from entry in Astana


The Spaniard, for his return to the court since his scare at the US Open, was sharply beaten by the Belgian David Goffin.

Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, world No.1 since his victory at the US Open in September, was beaten Tuesday in the first round of the ATP 500 tournament in Astana by Belgian David Goffin 7-5, 6-3.

Drafted after the withdrawal of Dane Holger Rune, the current 66th player in the world inflicted on the 19-year-old Spaniard his first defeat without a single set won since November 2021.

Alcaraz was playing his first ATP tournament since his victory in New York.

He has meanwhile played two matches in the Davis Cup with Spain, for a victory against the South Korean Kwon Soonwoo and a defeat against the Canadian Félix Auger-Aliassime (13th in the world).
