The most surprising match that most intrigued the experts in the Round of 16 of the ATP Paris Rolex Masters, in Paris-Bercy, ended with a sensational result. The twenty-year-old Frenchman Hugo Gaston beat the young jewel of world tennis, the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, in two sets and to general amazement.
When everyone was already looking forward to the match between the Spaniard and Daniil Medvedev in the Quarterfinals, the Frenchman loaded with an incredible crowd, defended well and thanks to a nefarious second set by Carlos, he recovered and closed with the result of 6-4 7-5.
Thanks to this result Gaston will make his entry into the Top 100. Here are the highlights of the match point where Gaston saves on several Alcaraz smashes. Taking a cue, obviously jokingly, from the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast, Gaston makes his young opponent look like LeFou!
