The Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz, who is the favorite to win the championship in the ATP 500 Hamburg, will begin his campaign in the event on Tuesday at one o’clock local time against Nicola Kuhn, who is a guest of the house but is a former Spanish player. Carlitos, the big sensation of the season, is certain that he has already readapted well to the dirt once the grass season is over and that he is confident in his ability to play the game.
“Even though it is always a significant challenge to leave grass behind and return to clay, I have been training here for a few days, and I feel ready to start the tournament in the best possible way. Despite the fact that it is always a significant challenge to leave grass behind and return to clay, I’m going to challenge him for the championship, “remarked the tennis player, who is just 19 years old but has already established himself in the top 10 and who is now ranked sixth in the standings.
Alcaraz is now ranked third in the ATP Race, although he is not very worried about ending the year as one of the top three players in the world. “That would be a worthy objective, but right now my focus is not on the ranking but rather on qualifying for the ATP Finals, which will be held at the conclusion of the season in Turin. I do not place the utmost importance on where I am ranked at the moment “the Spaniard took notice of that.
“This year, I’ve got results that have surprised me; I didn’t anticipate progressing as rapidly as I have, but I’ve worked hard for it. In spite of the fact that it came very suddenly and unexpectedly for me, I constantly emphasize the importance of working hard “he reasoned thusly.
