Spain's Carlos Alcaraz had to work hard but managed to secure his inaugural French Open championship by defeating Germany's Alexander Zverev 6-3, 2-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2 in the final on Sunday. The world's third-ranked player has now claimed three Grand Slam titles, following his Wimbledon victory last year and his US Open win in 2022, maintaining an undefeated record in major finals. At 21, Alcaraz is the seventh man and the youngest to win Grand Slam titles on all three surfaces. Despite an early setback, Alcaraz dominated the first set, closing it with a powerful forehand, but Zverev managed to equalize as Alcaraz's unforced errors increased. After regaining his composure, Alcaraz was serving for the third set at 5-3 when another lapse allowed Zverev to take the lead, yet the Spaniard quickly recovered, overcoming a thigh problem to dominate the next set and ultimately win the decisive set.
