Carlos Alcaraz has lit up the tennis world over the last two weeks—and the last year and a half, really—and with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Casper Ruud in the final of the Miami Open on Sunday, he captured his milestone first Masters 1000 title.

But that’s not the only thing he achieved—here are 10 more:

At 18 years and 10 months old, he’s the youngest men’s champion in Miami history. Novak Djokovic, the previous record-holder, was 19 years and 10 months old when he won it in 2007.

He’s the third-youngest man to win any Masters 1000 event. Michael Chang and Rafael Nadal were a younger 18 when they won their first Masters 1000 titles, in Toronto in 1990 and Monte Carlo in 2005, respectively.

He’s now 3-0 in his career in ATP finals. He’s won all of them in straight sets, too—he beat Richard Gasquet in the Umag final last year, 6-2, 6-2, Diego Schwartzman in the final of Rio de Janeiro earlier this year, 6-4, 6-2, and Ruud on Sunday, 7-5, 6-4.

He’s now 7-6 in his career against Top 10 players. He came into Miami with a 4-6 career record against Top 10 players, but with wins over No. 5 Stefanos Tsitsipas (fourth round), No. 10 Hubert Hurkacz (semifinals) and No. 8 Ruud (final), the Spanish teenager already has a winning record against the elite.

He’s now 16-1 since the Australian Open. He went 5-0 to win Rio de Janeiro, 1-0 in Davis Cup, 4-1 at Indian Wells (falling to Nadal in the semifinals) and 6-0 in Miami.

Alcaraz now has a winning record against Top 10 players, and he's projected to rise to No. 11 on the new ATP rankings.

He’s the first Spanish man ever to win Miami. Spanish men were 0-8 in Miami finals before this—Nadal is 0-5 in his career in Miami finals, with Sergi Bruguera, Carlos Moya and David Ferrer also finishing runner-up here once each.

He now has one of the few things missing in Nadal’s career resume. Miami is one of only three current Masters 1000 events Alcaraz's idol hasn’t won yet, alongside the two in the fall—Shanghai and Paris.

He’s just the second Spanish player, male or female, to win Miami. Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario won the event twice on the women's side, in 1992 and 1993.

His best winning percentage by surface is now on hard courts. He’s now 32-12 in his career on hard, a .727 winning percentage—meanwhile he’s .720 on clay (18-7) and .500 on grass (1-1).

He’s projected to make his Top 15 debut now. He came into Miami at a career-high of No. 16, and he’s expected to rise to No. 11 when the new ATP rankings come out.
