According to what was reported by the Spanish newspaper MARCA, Carlitos Alcaraz will observe two days of complete rest between Tuesday 9 April (yesterday - ed.) and today, Wednesday 10 April and he will try to come back to training on Thursday 11 April, at the Ferrero Tennis Academy in Villena.

The test will be almost decisive to understand if the young Spaniard will be able to play the ATP 500 in Barcelona or if he will also be forced to miss the next event scheduled on clay.

From Spain, in fact, it seems certain that the final decision will be made by the player and his staff between tomorrow and Friday. The injury that prevented Alcaraz from participating in the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters concerns the area of the right forearm.

A physical problem to pay close attention to to avoid much more serious consequences. Looking at the points that he will soon have to defend, the ATP No. 3 needs to recover quickly from the injury in order to show up at the next events in top form.

Alcaraz skip Monte Carlo to come back in Barcelona. Maybe...

Meanwhile, Alcaraz will not even be able to win a match in the ATP Master 1000 in Monte-Carlo in 2024 and thus dispel the nightmare. This year too, as happened in 2023, the Spanish tennis player had to withdraw from the tournament without playing a single match.

A situation that still led Carlitos not to lose points in the ATP ranking, but his current condition cannot help but cause particular concern to fans.

The Spaniard is entering one of the most important moments of his season: in fact, he will have to defend both the 500 points in Barcelona and the 1000 obtained in Madrid.

Skipping the Conde de Godó would certainly complicate the chances of putting pressure on Novak Djokovic for the 1st position in the ATP world rankings at Roland Garros, while it would further shuffle the cards on the fight with Jannik Sinner for the ATP number 2.
