Carlos Alcaraz: “I worked diligently to adjust.”

Carlos Alcaraz has increased public awareness of himself through recent interviews. The young Spaniard accomplished a number of significant milestones in 2022, which both astounded and established him as a man of great strength with bright prospects.

A truly astounding statistic that demonstrates how challenging it is to defeat the 19-year-old in both best-of-three and best-of-five sets is the Iberian’s ability to win at least one set in each of the 49 matches that have been played so far this year.

The fourth-ranked player in the world right now has played 100 official ATP matches, winning 75 of them (an absolute record, never reached by any player in history). Alcaraz recently discussed his upcoming competitions with the Gazzetta dello Sport: “We are now traveling to North America, where I already achieved victories in Miami in 2022 and Indian Wells in the semifinals.

The objective is to play at your best and score as many points as you can. Then comes the US Open, and I want to do in New York what I haven’t done in the other Slams: advance past the quarterfinals “He was tense.

Regarding the likelihood of completing a Grand Slam: “I believe I am getting close because I’ve arrived at the quarters. I may have lacked some experience in matches that lasted three out of five sets up until this point, but I’m getting closer.

I’m not picky about which one I take care of first. I’m not in the mood to be fussy about Slam championships “He jokedly continued. I came to the realization that losing might occasionally be advantageous since it teaches you how to respond.

Alcaraz desires a Grand Slam victory.

Carlos Alcaraz is seeded number two in a Masters 1000 for the first time in his career as a result of the combined absences of Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev. Carlos Alcaraz is currently ranked fourth in the world following an incredible first half of the season (only six defeats for six finals contested and four titles won).

A new status that he finds a little challenging to process. I grew up so quickly. I still find it astonishing and didn’t anticipate it at the beginning of the year that I would be seeded number two in a Masters 1000. And to be completely honest, I still find it hard to believe.

I desired it from the beginning of the year, but I didn’t think it was yet achievable “Carlos began by talking about his rigorous training. “I came here a few days before the event started to get accustomed to these courts and I conducted specific effort to adapt to the hard. With the top players in this room, I played points and sets.”
