Alcaraz on whether he imagined his first Major would come in New York
«I didn’t,» Alcaraz admitted.
«I really hadn’t imagined which would be the first.» Alcaraz already has a fairly complete game and is practically the favorite to win wherever he wants to go. Reflecting on his future Grand Slam chances, Alcaraz suggests that no matter where he wins a Grand Slam, he just wants to win it.
