Alcaraz overcomes Belgian veteran Goffin on Hopman Cup debut

Carlos Alcaraz, the world number one, made a successful return to the court after his Wimbledon victory. He defeated David Goffin in a hard-fought match at the Hopman Cup, but unfortunately, Spain lost 2-1 to Belgium. In another match, Switzerland emerged victorious over France, securing a 2-1 win and earning a spot in the final.

The day started with Alize Cornet defeating Celine Naef, but Naef bounced back in the next match to defeat Richard Gasquet. This set up a decisive match to determine the winner. Alcaraz, who recently won his second Grand Slam title by defeating Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon, faced some challenges on his return to clay in Nice, France. Despite dropping the first set, he fought back and won the match in a thrilling super tiebreak.

Alcaraz expressed his happiness at returning to clay courts and enjoyed playing tennis in Nice. He felt the energy and support from the crowd. However, in the mixed doubles rubber, Alcaraz and Masarova were defeated by Goffin and Mertens. Spain will now face Croatia in their next match.

The Hopman Cup, which was relaunched after a four-year hiatus, returned to the tennis calendar this week. It lost its spot before the Australian Open due to the ATP Cup men’s team event. The previous edition of the Hopman Cup saw Roger Federer leading Switzerland to victory against Germany. The tournament is named after Australian tennis legend Harry Hopman.

In conclusion, Carlos Alcaraz made a strong comeback after his Wimbledon triumph, winning his match against David Goffin. However, Spain ultimately lost to Belgium. Switzerland also secured a victory over France, earning a place in the final. The Hopman Cup returned to the tennis calendar after a four-year absence, and Spain will face Croatia in their next match.
