Again, attention is focused on the championship competition between Alkaras and Djokovic.
Alkaras and Djokovic, who are called ‘new and old emperors’ in the men’s tennis world,
have been playing a ‘dragon and tiger’ confrontation.
In their first match, last year’s men’s professional tennis (ATP) Tour Madrid Open semifinal and Wimbledon final in July this year, Alkaras won.
In particular, he was recognized as the new emperor who ousted Djokovic from power by winning the symbolic Wimbledon.

In the recent matchup, the Cincinnati Open final on the 20th,
Djokovic defeated Alkaras 2-1 (5-7 7-6 <9-7> 7-6 <7-4>)
after a bloody battle of 3 hours and 49 minutes.
Their overall head-to-head record is 2 wins and 2 losses without a streak.
As soon as Alkaras won, Djokovic took revenge, and the match unfolded.

No. 2 Djokovic took the No. 2 seed.
If both players survive to the end, they will face off in the final for the 5th time in their career and the 4th time this year.
Alkaras is the ‘defending champion’ who won the tournament last year.

surpassing Rafael Nadal (22nd, Spain) to become the most successful men’s singles player in major tournaments.

who reached the semifinals at Wimbledon this year,
are also considered candidates for the men’s singles championship.

she will become the first player to win two or more singles titles in major tournaments
for two consecutive years in 10 years since Serena Williams (retired, USA) in 2013.
Williams has won Wimbledon and the US Open in 2012 and the French Open and US Open in 2013.
Sibiontech’s opponents are Arina Sabalenka (Belarus),
