Carlos Alcaraz discusses his feelings on winning the US Open without Novak Djokovic.

Carlos Alcaraz recognized that Novak Djokovic‘s absence from the US Open likely contributed to his victory at Flushing Meadows, but he insisted he doesn’t want to detract from his own accomplishments. Due to his immunization history, Djokovic, 35, was refused admission into the country, while Roger Federer was still recovering from knee surgery.

Rafael Nadal, on the other hand, advanced to the US Open round of 16 but fell to Frances Tiafoe. “I don’t want to detract from myself, but it’s true that Rafa, Djokovic, and Federer were all playing at the same time.

I was fortunate—or whatever word you want to use—that Djokovic was unable to compete. Everyone has a justification, but the truth is that “The New York Times was told by Alcaraz. “For a spell, he was unable to play much, and while Rafa continued to play, he did not do so all year.

But as I stated, I don’t want to detract from my own accomplishments. I’ve been playing all season, competing in amazing matches and tournaments, and I’ve put a lot of effort into making things like this happen.”

Alcaraz made tennis history by winning a Grand Slam.

Alcaraz won his maiden Grand Slam victory in the US Open by defeating Casper Ruud, making him the sport’s youngest ever No. 1 player. Alcaraz demonstrated his admiration for the Big Three by winning his first Grand Slam at the age of 19 and rising to the top of the world rankings.

“Being the youngest No. 1 ever is amazing. The Big 3’s feat of remaining at the top for 20 years is far more difficult. I’m trying to find that. I don’t want to judge myself against them, but I do want to emulate them “Alcaraz declared.

Since his arrival in Spain, Alcaraz has not rested. Alcaraz is attempting to assist Spain advance to the Davis Cup Finals quarterfinal round this week.
