Draper beats defending champion Alcaraz at Queen's




New British men's number one Jack Draper continued his memorable week with a notable win over Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz at Queen's.

Draper, 22, earned a 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 victory over defending champion Alcaraz in the second round.

Spain's Alcaraz, 21, saved three match points at 5-2 before Draper served out from 0-30 to the delight of an ecstatic home crowd.
Beating the world number two - who claimed the French Open earlier this month - is the biggest win of Draper's career by ranking.

He also ended three-time Grand Slam champion Alcaraz's streak of 13 straight wins on grass.

The notable scalp comes after Draper claimed the first ATP title of his career at the Stuttgart Open on Sunday.

On Monday, he was confirmed as his nation's leading player on the men's tour.

Draper, who extended his winning run to seven matches, will play American fifth seed Tommy Paul in the quarter-finals on Friday.
