18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz got his Australian Open campaign off to a flying start on Monday, ripping 40 winners to 25 unforced errors to cruise past Chilean qualifier Alejandro Tabilo in an hour and 54 minutes, 6-2, 6-2, 6-3.

With the win, the Spanish teenager continued to build on an impressive stat: he’s now 5-0 in his career in first-round matches at Grand Slams.

Only one of the Big 3—Rafael Nadal—started his career that strong in opening matches at majors, not only going 5-0 in his first five, but eventually extending that to 34-0 before finally losing to Steve Darcis in the first round of Wimbledon in 2013.

Meanwhile, Roger Federer went 2-3 in his first five first-round matches at Grand Slams, while Novak Djokovic went 3-2 in his first five.
