AP Tennis Writer

PARIS (AP) — Rising star Carlos Alcaraz has saved a match point in the fourth set and erased an early deficit in the fifth to overcome Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-1, 6-7 (7), 5-7, 7-6 (2), 6-4 at the French Open. The sixth-seeded Alcaraz grabbed six of the final seven games and the last half-dozen points. His second-round victory lasted more than 4 1/2 hours. Alcaraz is just 19 but arrived in Paris with a lot of expectations based on his breakthrough season that includes a tour-leading four titles. He is the youngest player to break into the top 10 of the ATP rankings since Rafael Nadal in 2005.
