Cincinnati Masters: After a month, we will finally see Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz in the same tournament. And if everything goes right, we might see the epic clash again right before the US Open.
This will be the first time the Serbian and the Spaniard will be part of the same tournament since the Wimbledon 2023 final. Alcaraz defeated Djokovic in one of the best finals to lift that title.
The Western and Southern first-round matches of Cincinnati Masters have started. And we have some amazing blockbuster matches to look forward to. While the number 1 and 2 ranked player are waiting in the Round of 32.
Some Blockbuster Matches
There are some amazing matches for the fans in the first round itself. We have matches like Ben Shelton vs Christopher Eubanks. We will also see Andy Murray in action if he participates against Khachanov.
Defending champion Borna Coric will be up against Sebastian Korda in the first round. Whole Felix-Auger-Aliassime will face Matteo Berrettini and would like to return to form.
Alcaraz Eyeing Revenge
Alcaraz suffered a shocking defeat in the Canada Open quarter-finals against Tommy Paul. The defeat ended Alcaraz 14 match unbeaten streak, and the world was shocked by the result.
But now that Djokovic is also back in action, it might give the Spaniard the extra push needed to reach the finals and win the tournament. After all, this is the last Masters 1000 event before US Open kicks off.
Both would like to win Cincinnati Masters as it would stronghold their rankings before the US Open. Alcaraz will be the defending champion at the last Grand Slam of the year and would like to cement his place at the top before that.
