Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz dug deep to save 13 of 14 break points and reach the US Open last 32 on Thursday with a straights sets win over Federico Coria of Argentina. World number fourAlcaraz, a quarter-finalist in 2021, went through 6-2, 6-1, 7-5 on the back of 46 winners and will next face Jenson Brooksby of the United States.
It was the 46th victory of the year for the 19-year-old, tying him with Stefanos Tsitsipas for the best stretch.
“I am playing really well, I go for it,” said Alcaraz as he explained his all-out policy of attack.
“I’m happy to have the most wins this year but I look forward to staying the same player and same person.”
