Carlos Alcaraz played a crazy season and even data and records highlight his incredible rise. The Spaniard's 2023 has been extremely positive so far. Although the young champion has not so far managed to regain the first position in the ranking, currently permanently occupied by Novak Djokovic, the 6 titles won can only make him extremely proud.
While waiting to conclude the Asian tour, to then project onto Paris Bercy and finally the Finals in Turin (which he had to miss due to an injury last year), the Spaniard, together with his collaborators and his coach Juan Carlos Ferrero, plan for next season already.
The 20-year-old will begin his pre-season on December 8 at his coach's Equelite Academy in Villena. According to Marca newspaper, Alcaraz will spend four weeks working alone under the supervision of Ferrero, physiotherapist Juanjo Moreno and physical trainer Alberto Lledó.
According to the Madrid sports newspaper, the former number one will not take part in the first tournaments of the year in Brisbane, Adelaide, Auckland or the United Cup, therefore participating only in one exhibition before the Happy Slams.
A decision to give priority to a long pre-season to arrive fresh at Melbourne, a tournament he had to miss last year due to physical problems.
It's not the only news cooking for the Spaniard. According to what was reported by Ok Diario, Alcaraz would have in mind to open his own academy in Murcia which would bear his name and which would allow him to have another high-level tennis complex on the national territory, headed by his father Carlos Alcaraz Gonzalez, together to his coach Ferrero.
Carlos Alcaraz's season
The victories in Buenos Aires, Indian Wells, Barcelona, Madrid, Queen's and Wimbledon are a haul of the highest level, which would make any tennis player enthusiastic. Not the boy from Murcia, who aims to win all the tournaments in which he takes part, and who this year at least in the grand slam tournaments, has yet to give way to the Serbian champion, who scored at the Australian Open, Roland Garros and US Open.
