'Carlos Alcaraz Achieved The Goal Of A Lifetime', Says Former Ace

«Carlos Alcaraz achieved the goal of his life,» says former ace

As everyone knows, Carlos Alcaraz suffered an abdominal tear during the Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy. The 19-year-old Spaniard had to forego the ATP finals in Turin and will not even participate in the Davis Cup finals in Malaga.

A real shame for him and for all tennis fans. Despite this setback, the young Iberian still has an excellent chance to end the season at the top of the ATP rankings. This year, Juan Carlos Ferrero’s protege participated in 17 tournaments playing 70 matches, winning 57 and losing 13.

In 2022 ‘Carlitos’ won the US Open, two Masters 1000 (Miami and Madrid) and two ATP 500 (Rio and Barcelona). By triumphing in New York, Alcaraz achieved his first Grand Slam and became the youngest number 1 in the history of men’s tennis.

His performance dropped in the last part of the season, also due to a knee problem. At Eurosport, Alex Corretja analyzed the year of his young compatriot.

Belt where Carlos Alcaraz

«The US Open effort came with a bill to pay,» the former world number 2 told Eurosport.

“You achieve your life’s goal, the dream of becoming world number 1 and winning a Grand Slam. “The next few weeks are automatically the hardest to deal with. Carlos Alcaraz played the Davis Cup right after, then he went to a tournament far away [in Astana, Kazakhstan]with the long flight and the time competing that he had to do.

Of course, in the end it is a shame because we expected to see it in the [Paris] Masters, to fight for the number 1 in the world against Rafa [Nadal]not especially to measure who is the best of the two, but rather for the pride of having two Spaniards fighting for the throne of the world.

In addition, not counting on him for the Davis Cup final, which had generated a lot of expectation because it is played in Spain. But I’ll say it again: this is all normal with everything that happened, even if it’s a bit of a ‘too bad’ situation.

I am convinced that in 2023 it will be treated differently and I still think that the way in which [his coaching team] Dealing with him was still excellent. You have to remember that what Alcaraz has done is almost a miracle because fighting for what he really fights at 19 years old, nobody had done before.
