Carlos Alcaraz hailed his epic US Open quarter-final victory over Jannik Sinner as the best match of his career, predicting a tennis changing of the guard.

In a tie that ended at 02:50 on Thursday, the 19-year-old Spaniard won 6-3, 6-7 (7/9), 6-7 (0/7), 7-5, 6-3.

Since Rafael Nadal in the 2005 French Open, Alcaraz is the youngest Grand Slam men’s semi-finalist.

He is also the youngest men’s semi-finalist at the US Open since Pete Sampras in 1990.

Although he is still seeking his first Grand Slam title, Alcaraz warned that the dominance of Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer, who have 63 majors between them, may be coming to an end.

“As long as Rafa, Djokovic, and Federer are there, they will be the best, and their rivalry will always come first,” he said.

“But Jannik and I proved today that we are in the present and that we have a long career ahead of us; we will play many times together.”
