Carlos Alcaraz starts grass court campaign with victory over Francisco Cerundolo at Queen’s Club

LONDON (AP) — Carlos Alcaraz started his grass-court season Tuesday by beating Francisco Cerundolo 6-1, 7-5 in the first round at Queen’s Club.

The 21-year-old Spaniard returned to action after his French Open title and extended his winning streak on grass to 13 matches.

The streak dates back to last year, when Alcaraz won the Queen’s Club title before beating Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final.

Alcaraz, ranked No. 2, improved to 17-2 on grass during his career and 13-0 against players ranked outside the top 20 in the field. Cerundolo is at number 26.
