ATP No. 3 Alcaraz has the chance to grasp the top spot in the ranking. If he could nail it down, he would be the youngest player to do so. However, he needs to win two more matches. So far, he has had a tough run-in as he defeated Sebastian Baez, Federico Coria, Jensen Brooksby and Marin Cilic. He faced his toughest foe, Jannik Sinner, in the last 8. It was the most toiling game and one of the most exciting games in the history of the US Open.
The match lasts more than 5 hours. The Spaniard had to play 5 sets to snatch the victory from the Italian. After winning the first set, Alcaraz lost the next two sets after going so close. Once it felt like Sinner would be the eventual winner. However, Carlos fought back and fought well. He won the back-to-back sets to confirm his progression. The final score is 6-3, 6-7, 6-7, 7-5, 6-3.
Tiafoe played some of the best tennis of his career so far in front of the home crowd. He won against Marcos Giron, Jason Kubler and Diego Schwartzman in straight sets. He then played and won the biggest win in his career as he defeated one of the greatest players ever Rafael Nadal in the fourth round. His quarterfinal adversary was Andrey Rublev. While many expected Ruvlev to win the game, American International made the fool out of everyone after defeating him. Again in straight sets. The result is 7-6, 7-6, and 6-4.

Alcaraz vs Tiafoe Prediction:
Alcaraz is playing top games from the start of the US Open. He had many tough opponents and winning against them made him sharper and prepare him well for the last part of the tournament. Nonetheless, he has one disadvantage and that is, that he had to play longer hours and physically demanding matches made him more tired than his last four counterparts.
On the contrary, Tiafoe is playing freely and has already achieved so many after beating Nadal and Rublev. So he can be a bit more relaxed in the next match. However, it would be tough for him to restrict a player like Alcaraz who is in a red hot form.
Our prediction is, that Carlos Alcaraz will win the match and secure the final.
