Aslan Karasev, ranked 20th in the ATP rankings, returned to his act, thanks to which he was a revelation for the first weeks of the previous season. On Saturday, the Russian tackled Andy Murray, who wanted to win his 47th Cup at the Main Course in Sydney. If the Briton had succeeded in this play, he would have also returned to the world top 100 rankings.
The former leader in the ATP rating, however, will wait for the tournament, because Caracio played a very good match. The Władykaukzy-born tennis player took advantage of all the weaknesses of the title-bearing opponent. He started the first set and finished with a break. However, in the second installment, he scored a key break in the second match and then maintained his lead. In the fifth half, Murray had five chances to return to the match, but the Russian saved the pass.
After 92 minutes, Carraggio finally beat Murray 6:3, 6:3. The semi-finalist of the 2021 Australian Open takes the wind back in Antipodes. On Saturday, he won his third career title and will surely want to show himself at the Grand Slam event in Melbourne, which starts on Monday. At the 2022 Australian Open, he could meet Hubert Hurkacz in the third round.

First of all, congratulations to Andy. He made an effort to get back on the field and played incredibly this week. I also congratulate his team. I also thank my staff for the great work. Thank you all for coming to support us. In this difficult situation, the atmosphere was incredible. It’s a tough time to organize a tournament, so thank you all – he said during Karasev’s decorating party.
