Carlos Alcaraz added his name to the list of ATP NextGen champions. Today, the 18-year-old Spaniard cruised past Sebastian Korda in the final in straight sets 4-3(5), 4-2, 4-2.

“It is amazing,” Alcaraz told the crowd. “To be able to win this tournament means a lot to me. I am so excited right now and emotional. I was very, very nervous at the start. I had to be calm to save the break points. I know Korda is serving very well, so I had to play my best in those moments.”

Alcaraz finished the event 5-0 and earned $400K for the effort.

Korda was trying to become the first American to win the title.

“Carlos played incredibly well,” said Korda. “He’s definitely playing a lot better than his [FedEx ATP] Ranking and he won’t be in that spot for long.”

Alcaraz follows Jannik Sinner (2019), Stefanos Tsitsipas (2018) and Hyeon Chung (2017) as NextGen ATP Finals winners.
