Sensational news in the world of tennis. World number one Carlos Alcaraz, one of the most awaited men these days, will officially miss the Australian Open. News that shocks tennis insiders and enthusiasts, eager to see one of the great protagonists of 2022 at work and certainly among the favorites at the Australian tournament.
Carlos was working to return after an injury, but was stopped by another stoppage and will thus miss the entire Australian season. Bad news for the Iberian champion, who seriously risks losing the first position in the world rankings, among other things.
The Murciano tennis player explained the whole situation through a post on his social channels and thus clarified the reasons for this tough choice. Here are his words: “During the preseason, in the best of this period, I got injured due to a random and unnatural movement during training.
This time it's the semimembranosus muscle in my right leg. I have worked so hard to travel to Australia but unfortunately I will not be able to play Care A2+ Kooyong or the Australian Open. It's tough, but I have to be optimistic, recover and look beyond.
See you in the 2024 Australian Open”. Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz was the big favourite, right behind Novak Djokovic, in the Australian tournament but now he will have to totally change his future plans. Nothing to do for Alcaraz Djokovic's challenge in the grand slams with Nole who did not participate in the last two hard-court slams (Australian Open and US Open 2022) and now Alcaraz who will have to postpone his ambitions.
The Australian Open 2023 loses one of the greatest protagonists of him.
Jaume Munar speaks about Alcaraz
Jaume Munar believes Carlos Alcaraz has solved a "little problem" for Spanish tennis. "I think we had a little problem as a country with the way that Rafa was getting older and we didn’t have the second one behind him after (David) Ferrer," Jaume Munar stated to Sportskeeda.
"But Alcaraz covered that and he’s working, I mean, (he’s) among the best. With the players, I think we’re in a good position," the 25-year-old further said. "The federation is doing a great job, we’re having a lot of tournaments now, they’re investing a lot on that, and I think that is important to get more players to the top.
They have been doing an amazing job the last couple of years and this is the result that we keep up there with the best countries in the world, and tennis is peaking," he added.
