Why did Alcaraz retired?
But the 18-year-old had to retire on Tuesday evening during the second set of his match against Felix Auger-Aliassime due to a right adductor injury. “It's really tough to end a great tournament like this. I had no choice to still play,” Alcaraz said. “First of all I have to take care of my body to stay healthy. ATP TourCarlos Alcaraz: 'It's Really Tough To End A Great Tournament Like This'

Auger-Aliassime, the much-hyped 21-year-old Canadian who has steadily progressed up the rankings over the past two years, advances to his first Grand Slam semifinal where he’ll face No. 2 seed Daniil Medvedev.
Alcaraz said afterwards he had a problem with his right adductor, a muscle in the thigh and hip area, but that he was able to control the pain early on. As the match progressed, however, he said it became bad enough that he could not continue.
"It’s really tough to end a great tournament like this, but I had no choice to still play," he said. "I have to take care of my body and to stay healthy."
Auger-Aliassime had controlled the match to that point with his serve and forehand, acing Alcaraz seven times and hitting 14 winners. Alcaraz had spent a significant amount of time on the court just to get past the round of 16, needing 3 hours, 31 minutes in a five-set win over Peter Gojowczyk and 4 hours, 7 minutes to outlast Tsitsipas.
"To play two matches to fifth sets in a row, play at a great intensity like four hours is really tough for me," he said. "I’m not used to playing these kind of matches in a row so I think it’s really tough to recover to the next matches."
Though Alcaraz had some tape on the injured area at the start of the match, Auger-Aliassime said he was not aware that Alcaraz was injured.
"I didn’t see it coming," Auger-Aliassime said. "It’s unfortunate to finish like this. At the same time I think he can be very proud of himself, very positive, heading back with head high and for myself the tournament keeps going."

Felix Auger-Aliassime has become the latest Canadian tennis star to make it into the semi-finals of the US Open.
Just hours after 19-year-old Leylah Fernandez advanced to the final four in the women’s singles bracket, the 21-year-old Auger-Aliassime came through with a win in the quarterfinals over Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz.
“It’s amazing, I don’t know what to say anymore,” Auger-Aliassime said of Fernandez’s run. “Just keep going. She’s gotta keep going, until the end.”
With Auger-Aliassime up 6-3, 3-1 in the second set, Alcaraz retired due to an apparent injury suffered in the first set.
It is the first Grand Slam semifinal of Auger-Aliassime’s career. His previous best result at a major came at this year’s Wimbledon, where he made the quarterfinals.
It is only the second time in history that two Canadians have made the semis at the same Grand Slam, following Milos Raonic and Genie Bouchard at Wimbledon in 2014.
Auger-Aliassime will face Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in Friday’s semi-final. The pair last faced off at the 2018 Canadian Open (then known as the Rogers Cup), where Auger-Aliassime took the first set off the current world No. 2 before falling 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 in Toronto.
