What’s next in store for Carlos Alcaraz?
Carlos Alcaraz will definitely have his eyes on Roland Garros. The second Grand Slam of the year which starts in Paris in a month’s time is played on clay surface which suits the Spaniard’s style of play.
Alcaraz won the Rio Open last month. The tournament was played on a clay surface, a good warm-up event leading to the Roland Garos which is played on clay surface. Alcaraz became the youngest ever ATP 500 champion after defeating Diego Schwartzmann 6-4, 6-2 in the final. Alcaraz however would need to be careful about his fitness leading to the second Grand Slam of the year. The Spaniard withdrew from the next event, the Acapulco Open in Mexico owing to a niggle he suffered post the Rio Open. With a packed schedule, he would look to ensure he stays fit and on top of his game going into the French Open. And, of course there can’t be a better morale booster than winning an ATP-1000 event – the 2022 Miami Open.
Carlos Alcaraz is often compared to his idol Rafael Nadal. Left-handed, Spanish, strong on clay surfaces – too much in common isn’t it? Well, there is definitely something more to it. The potential, the talent and the precise execution, Alcaraz has it in abundance. When you watch Alcaraz play, you can definitely relate him to Nadal in the early stages of his career. Alcaraz has been considered the next big thing in tennis for quite some time now. Is it finally time for Alcaraz to put his name for reckoning along with the big boys on a platform like the Grand Slam?
