Carlos Alcaraz, the 2023 Wimbledon champion, secured his first victory since his momentous win at the prestigious tournament by defeating David Goffin at the Hopman Cup in France.

In the thrilling match, world number one Alcaraz emerged triumphant with a hard-fought 4-6, 6-4, 10-8 victory over Goffin, helping Spain level the tie with Belgium at 1-1. Unfortunately, his teammate Rebeka Masarova faced defeat against Elise Mertens earlier in the competition.

Notably, Alcaraz had claimed the Wimbledon title by defeating the legendary 23-time Grand Slam champion, Novak Djokovic, in a remarkable showdown on Sunday.

The Hopman Cup, an international mixed-teams indoor tennis tournament, made a comeback after a four-year absence. It had been temporarily replaced by the ATP Cup men’s team event during its hiatus.

Alcaraz’s transition back to clay on his debut in the event was not without challenges. He faced setbacks in the opening set, conceding his serve twice to Goffin. However, displaying his resilience and skill, he managed to level the match before staging an impressive comeback from a 0-4 deficit in the super tie-break, ultimately securing the victory.

Despite their best efforts, Alcaraz and Masarova were unable to clinch the mixed doubles match against Goffin and Mertens, resulting in Belgium winning the tie 2-1.

Spain’s upcoming match is against Croatia, who secured a 2-1 victory against Belgium. The winners of this three-team group will face Switzerland in the final on Sunday.

The previous edition of the Hopman Cup in 2019, named after Australian legend Harry Hopman, witnessed Roger Federer leading Switzerland to victory against Germany.
