The change of generations is a fact: Alcaraz – Ruud is the youngest Slam final in 20 years

This year’s edition of the US Open showed us clearly that the future of tennis is in safe hands, as although representatives of the Big Three were not among the main actors of the tournament, we witnessed a number of exciting matches involving talented young players . Among them, 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz and 23-year-old Casper Ruud stood out the most, who deserved their place in the final clash and today will face each other in a battle for both the trophy in New York and the first place in the world ranking list.

The match in question is clear evidence of the change of generations in tennis, as the sum of the ages of the two finalists is the lowest since 20 years, when Lleyton Hewitt (21) and David met in the 2002 Wimbledon title clash Nalbandian (20 years old).

In addition, today’s match will also be the second-youngest final in the entire history of the US Open, and the leading position in this arrangement is occupied by the final battle in 1990, opposing two American tennis legends in the face of 19-year-old Pete Sampras and 20-year-old Andre Agassi.
