Spain's young tennis star Carlos Alcaraz is world number one once again after beating Daniil Medvedev (6-3, 6-2) to win his first title at Indian Wells on Sunday, the so-called fifth Grand Slam.
In a display of maturity and experience, despite not even having turned 20 yet, Alcaraz became the fourth Spaniard in history (in the men's category) to win in the California desert, after José Higueras (1983), Alex Corretja (2000) and Rafael Nadal (2007, 2009 and 2013).
He's also the youngest tennis player (out of only seven men in history) to win the 'Sunshine Double' (both Indian Wells and the Miami Masters).
The player from Murcia needed just one hour and 10 minutes in Coachella to eliminate Medvedev, one of the best on fast courts, who came into this clash on the back of 19 consecutive wins (including against Malaga's Alejandro Davidovich in the quarter-final) and three titles (Rotterdam, Doha and Dubai).
