All Hail Carlos Alcaraz

Last weekend saw a historic moment in tennis as the prestigious Wimbledon tournament saw the young 20-year-old Spaniard & world number one Carlos Alcaraz, securing his maiden title. Despite facing the formidable seven-time champion and world number two, Novak Djokovic in the finals, Alcaraz emerged victorious after a gruelling five-set match that lasted nearly five hours, a battle now regarded a classic.

For the past two decades, the men's singles at Wimbledon had been dominated by the renowned "Big 4" in the sport - Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, and Rafa Nadal. However, Carlos Alcaraz's triumph has broken this pattern, with the last non-Big 4 winner being Lleyton Hewitt in 2002. To shed light on how Alcaraz claimed his first Wimbledon championship and second Grand Slam title, we have ex-national tennis player Adam Jaya joining us this week as we explore the dawning of a new era in professional tennis.
