Carlos Alcaraz sets great achievements: right, he has everything to dominate


In a long interview for the ATP website, Carlos Alcaraz reflected on the extraordinary victories obtained this year: “I must admit that it has been a dream season for me. I have won many titles, some of which are very prestigious.

I have conquered the My first Masters 1000 in Miami and then I triumphed in Barcelona in front of my crowd. I will never forget the successes in Madrid and the US Open, thanks to which I became number 1 in the world. I still want more. I would like to win my second Slam, I would say that’s my big goal for the new year. Wimbledon would be great!”

Alcaraz will not show up in Melbourne as a favourite, given the presence of Novak Djokovic and outgoing champion Rafael Nadal. We will also need to keep an eye on Daniil Medvedev, who has always expressed great tennis at the Australian Open.

However, Alcaraz is young and wise, and setting medium and long-term goals is a choice for a top player. He has it all: cool head in clutch moments, physical strength and stamina, mental toughness, ability to read opponent and match, and good technique. His tactics, already excellent, will improve over time under the guidance of his coaches.

Carlos had a wonderful year to say the least, in which he proved to be predestined. The 19-year-old Spaniard put his first Grand Slam on the bulletin board, winning the US Open at the end of a magnificent run.

Thanks to his triumph in New York, he became the youngest number 1 in the history of men’s tennis. Juan Carlos Ferrero’s pupil enriched his season by also winning two Masters 1000 (Miami and Madrid) and as many ATP 500 (Rio and Barcelona).

During 2022, Alcaraz indulged in the whim of beating two sacred monsters such as Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. The Spaniard had some physical problems in the last part of the season, which ended prematurely due to an abdominal tear.

Alcaraz was unable to participate in either the ATP Finals in Turin or the Davis Cup finals in Malaga. During the Abu Dhabi exhibition, the ATP number 1 reiterated that he will not play any official tournament before the 2023 Australian Open. His goal is to train hard in view of the first Major of the new season.
