Carlos Alcaraz is the greatest prodigy the tennis world has seen since the big 3 emerged. His breakthrough 2022 season was nothing short of spectacular, marking his meteoric rise and establishing himself at the top of the world. The highlight of his year, undoubtedly, was his triumphant campaign at the 2022 US Open. He not only captured his first Grand Slam title, but in doing so became the youngest player in ATP history to reach the world #1 ranking. At just 20 years of age, he has already captured 2 Grand Slam titles and is destined for many more.

The final against Casper Ruud was a historic occasion, with both players seeking their first Grand Slam title and the world #1 ranking on the line. Alcaraz rose to the occasion magnificently, overcoming Ruud in four sets with a display of power, precision, and poise that captured the imagination of the tennis world. The match, during which he wore this presented wristband, represented a generational shift with the arrival of a new global superstar. 

This match worn Nike wristband was received by the original owner from Alcaraz after he won the September 11th final. An included photo shows it being held immediately after it was obtained, and the wristband also includes certification from MEARS. The wristband is a truly historic item from the young, yet already great champion Carlos Alcaraz.
