Barcelona Open tennis champion Alcalas ‘I am the man of the pool’

If ‘Woman of the Lake’ appeared on the LPGA tour, ‘Man in the Pool’ appeared on the Men’s Professional Tennis (ATP) tour.

Carlos Alcalas (2nd place, Spain) defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas (5th place, Greece) in the singles final on the final day of the ATP Tour Barcelona Open (total prize money 2,722,480 euros) held in Barcelona, ​​Spain on the 23rd (local time). We defeated them 2-0 (6-3 6-4).

Alkaras, who won the championship for the second year in a row, received a prize money of 477,795 dollars (approximately 630 million won).

It is customary for the winner of the Barcelona Open to throw himself into the swimming pool in the venue along with tournament officials.

It is similar to the tradition that the winner of the Chevron Championship, the first major tournament of the LPGA Tour season that ended in Woodlands, Texas, on this day, fell into a lake near the green of the 18th hole. 토토사이트

This year’s Chevron Championship changed the venue from Mission Hills Country Club in California to The Club Carlton Woods in Texas, but the custom of the winner falling into the water was maintained.

This is because Lilia Bu (USA), who became a major champion, “saw a snake near the 17th hole the other day”, but boldly threw herself into the lake next to the 18th hole.

“It feels so good to lift the trophy in front of family and friends,” said Alkaras, born in 2003.

Alkaras, who won the U.S. Open last year and reached No. 1 in the men’s singles world rankings before turning 20 for the first time in his history, won his third title after the Argentine Open in February and the BNP Paribas Open in March this year.
