Alcaraz ousted by Jarry in Buenos Aires!

Carlos Alcaraz will not play the final in Buenos Aires. The Spaniard, not yet fully acclimated to clay, was knocked out by Nicolas Jarry in the semi-finals on Saturday. A little too inconsistent, alternating spectacular winners and sometimes big mistakes, he lost 7/6(2), 6/3 in 1 hour and 55 minutes.

On the other side of the net, Jarry played a near-perfect match. Highly offensive, he was imperious at the net, ultra-punchy on the backhand and very solid on the important points. This is the biggest win of the Chilean's career. He will meet Argentina's Facundo Diaz Acosta in the final on Sunday.

Considering rafa is playing one of the quickest players on tour and that this is only his 3rd tour match in well over 300 weeks I don't think this is too bad. Not too say I wouldn't have liked to see

I said earlier that Rafa would win in 3 sets & I still believe he can

Rafa never lost a 2R match at Barcelona before. It's really heartbreaking to see my idol going down like this. But I guess, if this is what it takes for him to be 100% fit for French Open then I will

Let's just say Trevisan is a better clay courter and played as such and Naomi has yet to master the surface.
