Will Carlos Alcaraz play in Madrid? In the last few hours, a video that gives hope to his fans. The young champion has returned to practice on clay courts and it seems that his physical condition is much improved compared to Monte Carlo, so it seems he should then play the Mutua Madrid Open.

Carlitos moved well and showed off all his best tricks. A caption attached to the post in particular portends good news. "Working to get to Madrid," he wrote.

If Alcaraz were to take part in the tournament he won in the last two editions, he would start as second seed, behind Jannik Sinner.

There would be no challenge with the Italian before a possible final, due to the recent withdrawal of Novak Djokovic, who, like last year, preferred to preserve himself in view of the commitments in Rome and the Roland Garros.

Alcaraz, after having missed first in Monte-Carlo and then in Barcelona, has a mad desire to return and resume the race towards confirmation of the title, which he was unable to defend this week.

Alcaraz should be in Madrid

So then it came this positive news therefore for Carlos, who just under a week ago announced his withdrawal in Barcelona and also put Madrid in serious danger.

"My goal is to go to the Mutua Madrid Open but at the moment it's not at all clear to me whether I will make it. They told me some deadlines, which I respected well, but I still haven't had that feeling we were looking for.

I don't want to rush, I don't want to say that in Madrid I will be 100%, even if that is my intention. We will train, we will do everything in our power to make those sensations better and right to play a tennis match at 100%.

I hope to be able to have fun with the Madrid crowd and play at home, this would be very important for me. I hope to see you all there and enjoy all the Madrid love too. I hope everything goes well," he explained.
