Carlos Alcaraz pulls off a special feat that eluded Nadal, Federer, Djokovic

Carlos Alcaraz, the teenage sensation from Spain, has posted a better record in ATP finals than all of the Big Three: Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic.

Alcaraz defeated Pablo Carreno Busta 6-3, 6-2 to claim the Barcelona Open title, the fourth ATP trophy of his career. The 18-year-old is now 4-0 in his career in ATP finals, and even more impressive is that he triumphed in all of those finals in straight sets, something that eluded even Nadal, Federer and Djokovic, according to tennis. com.

Giving you some historical perspective, both Nadal and Djokovic went 3-1 in their first four finals, while Federer lost three of his first four ATP finals. And none of the legends won those finals in straight sets.

Furthermore, no one else in the current Top 10 of the ATP Rankings (Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Matteo Berrettini, Casper Ruud, Andrey Rublev, Felix Auger-Aliassime or Cam Norrie) has won his first four career finals, either. .
