Carlos Alcaraz’s exceptional journey of record-breaking achievements in the realm of tennis persists. The Spanish prodigy, currently making waves in the Cincinnati Masters 1000, has yet again shattered a longstanding record that remained untouched for a span of over sixty years. A Historical Moment: Alcaraz Becomes Youngest US Open No. 1 Seed in 66 Years”                                                                                                                                                                                          The most recent occurrence of a 20-year-old tennis player holding the top seed position at the US Open dates back to 1957, when Australia’s Ashley Cooper claimed this distinction. A remarkable figure in the sport, Cooper, with four Grand Slam victories to his name, advanced to the tournament’s final, only to surrender the title to fellow countryman Mal Anderson.
Throughout the nearly seven decades that followed, a couple of players came tantalizingly close to achieving this milestone. Lleyton Hewitt, in 2002, and Bjorn Borg, in 1977, both came within reach of this honor. At the time, both the Australian and the Swede were 21 years old, showcasing their exceptional talent on the world stage.
