After reaching the Hamburg final over the weekend, Carlos Alcaraz was recognised as the youngest player to break into the ATP top five since Rafael Nadal.

The 19-year-old Spaniard is the youngest guy to accomplish this achievement since his legendary compatriot entered the top five for the first time at age 18 in 2005.

Sunday, despite saving five match points, Alcaraz lost the German clay-court championship against Lorenzo Musetti, an Italian teenager, despite saving five match points.

Musetti climbed 31 spots to the 31st position in the rankings and will now be seeded for the US Open, which begins on August 29.

After the grass-court Grand Slam tournament was stripped of ranking points for barring Russian and Belarusian competitors, Daniil Medvedev remained the number one player in the world and Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic fell to seventh.
