This is where 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz’s run ends. 

His quarter-final opponent is Felix Auger Aliassime, who looked rock solid against a hard-hitting Francis Tiafoe in his previous match.

The 12th-seeded Canadian recovered from a set down to beat Tiafoe 4-6 6-2 7-6(6) 6-4 and reach the last eight of the US Open for the first time in his career. He earlier posted wins over Evgeny Donskoy 7-6(0) 3-6 7-6(1) 7-6(8), Bernabe Zapata Miralles 7-6(5) 6-3 6-2 and Roberto Bautista Agut 6-3 6-4 4-6 3-6 6-3

Alcaraz, on the other hand, really struggled in his fourth-round clash against Peter Gojowczyk who is ranked 141st in the world, and now enters this clash with FAA off the back of two five setters. The 18-year-old twice came back from a set down to prevail over Gojowczyk 5-7 6-1 5-7 6-2 6-0 and reach the quater-finals in his first ever apperance in this competition.

Alcaraz survived the qualifying tournament before beating Cameron Norrie 6-4 6-4 6-3, Arthur Rinderknech 7-6(6) 4-6 6-1 6-4 and Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-3 4-6 7-6(2) 0-6 7-6(5).

Verdict

The Wolf thinks the 18-year-old has run out of steam though, and expects FAA to win this in four sets – paying $3.90. He’ll be taking the -1.5 set handicap though, as a straight set victory could be on the cards.

Best Bet: Auger-Aliassime -1.5 Set Handicap @105 at BetMGM - 1 Unit
