Carlos Alcaraz will defend a major title in 2023

Carlos Alcaraz is undoubtedly the player who has shown the most progress in 2022. The young Spaniard had already glimpsed flashes of class in 2021, but this year he has definitely exploded at very high levels. 'Carlitos' won the US Open and became the youngest No.

1 in men's tennis history. Juan Carlos Ferrero's protégé embellished his season by also putting on the bulletin board two Masters 1000 (Miami and Madrid) and as many ATP 500 (Rio and Barcelona). Many insiders and former tennis players are convinced that Alcaraz will dominate the men's circuit in the coming years.

The 19-year-old from Murcia had some physical problems in the last part of the season, but has already resumed training and will participate in the packed exhibition in Abu Dhabi from 16 to 18 December. Unlike many other players, the Iberian will not play official tournaments before the 2023 Australian Open.

We remind you that Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev will be involved in the ATP 250 in Adelaide, while Rafael Nadal will take part in the first edition of the United Cup.

Alcaraz will play in Barcelona

The current champion of the Count of Godó confirms his presence for the next edition of the tournament held in Barcelona in 2023.

Now as the number one in the world, Carlos Alcaraz will arrive in Catalonia with a trophy to defend. David Ferrer, director of the tournament, shared the joy of having the Murcian for next year: "He is a unique tennis player, with a lot of charisma and, in addition, he enjoys on the court.

He still has a whole career ahead of him to continue improving", said the tennis player to Mundo Deportivo. We will have to wait until April to find out if Alcaraz repeats his triumph in Barcelona. Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek have endured a standout season in 2022.

“I see her year has been incredible, she broke a record I think for the longest winning streak (this century). It’s amazing,” Alcaraz said of Swiatek. “I wish to be like her, to not lose the No. 1. But I think it’s almost impossible.

I’m going to lose it but the point is to recover it and stay there at No. 1 as much as I can," Carlos Alcaraz expressed. “It’s been about two years he’s working with her. It’s not like every week but every time that he feels he needs to talk to her about something that maybe is not right or something that is giving him more troubles in a match, he talks to her and tries to fix it a little bit,” said Ferrero.
