According to a great coach, Carlos Alcaraz makes 30% of his shots.

Carlos Alcaraz won the US Open 2022 on Sunday. The 19-year-old Spaniard won his maiden Grand Slam match at Arthur Ashe Stadium by defeating Casper Ruud in four sets. The protege of Juan Carlos Ferrero rose to the top spot in men’s tennis history as a result of this victory.

No matter how the upcoming competitions turn out, 2022 will go down in history as the year of the “Carlitos” boom. The champion from Murcia had won two Masters 1000 tournaments (Miami and Madrid) and two ATP 500 tournaments prior to his amazing achievement in New York (Rio and Barcelona).

At a news conference, the Iberian said, “I did not expect to accomplish similar results at the age of 19.” “After winning the Masters 1000 in Miami, I understood that obtaining a Grand Slam didn’t require much.

In the past few months, I’ve worked a lot and developed pressure-management skills. In Montreal and Cincinnati, I hadn’t been feeling well, and I had lost my smile. Fortunately, I discovered it in New York City. Patrick Mouratoglou provided a thorough analysis of Alcaraz‘s ascent in a video that was uploaded to Instagram.

“The first one’s remarkable mental fortitude is what I find most impressive. The number one ranking, the first Grand Slam, needing to save match points, being physically worn out, and is yet able to perform under these circumstances,” he remarked.

Next, the French coach discussed Carlos Alcaraz‘s athletic prowess, praising the Spaniard for his “intensity” and “explosiveness” on every shot. “The second is his athleticism. The ferocity and explosiveness paired with the way he hits the ball with such force on each and every shot,” he remarked.

The third thing is how well-rounded his game is. No vulnerabilities; terrific from well behind the baseline as well as from close to it; 30% of his shots land within the baseline; excellent at the goal. It’s incredible that all of this could develop at the age of 19, he continued.

The 19-year-old did not let anyone down by winning this year’s US Open and earning his first Grand Slam victory. He put up an impressive performance the entire competition to win. Former World Number 1 Novak Djokovic praised Alcaraz on his performance at Flushing Meadows.

The 21-time Grand Slam winner thanked Alcaraz for his outstanding performance in winning the US Open on Instagram. “Congratulations @carlitosalcarazz for your first Grand Slam,” Djokovic wrote beside a photo of Alcaraz holding the US Open trophy. incredible performance
