Carlos Alcaraz casually shows off insane racquet skills at US Open

Carlos Alcaraz has proven he can’t do much on the pitch.

And now that includes some serious snowshoe skills that seem straight out of a carnival or three-ring circus.

In his 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 win over Germany’s Alexander Zverev in the US Open quarter-finals on Wednesday night, Spain’s No.1 seed simply twirled his racket in the air at least 15 times between matches.

Completely poised and without letting his racquet touch the blue surface at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the 20-year-old superstar didn’t look the least bit fazed during the Grand Slam match.

And true to how he played the entire tournament, Alcaraz won Zverev’s first two sets, 6-3 and 6-2.

Alcaraz had a good time in Flushing, even if it frustrated his opponents at times.

In his third-round match against No.26 seed Dan Evans on Saturday, Alcaraz landed a number of incredible shots that confused the Briton.

After at least two extended volleys on which Alcaraz ended up earning points, Evans threw his racquet in a mixture of anger and disbelief.

“We also play to make people happy, to entertain them and try to make the game fun,” Alcaraz said after the game.

“It’s great to have those kind of points too and to feel the energy they have.”

And in his first-round win over Dominik Koepfer on August 29, Alcaraz was so thrilled he burst into song.

With two-time Latin Grammy winner Sebastian Yatra in the crowd for the match, Alcaraz did his best to sing the hit “VAGABUNDO.”

As Alcaraz looks to claim his second consecutive US Open title, one really wonders what he will do next on the court to wow the Queens crowd.
