The native of El Palmar has also risen as a huge image for the world’s biggest brands, including its sports clothing supplier, Nike, with whom he signed weeks ago a new contract that links him to the American company until the middle of the next decade and in which he could earn between 15 and 20 million dollars annually, as reported by the media "The Relevo".

Lucas Pouille praises Carlos Alcaraz

During a long interview with Tennis Actu, Lucas Pouille praised Carlos Alcaraz: “Everything, for me, his ability to know how to do everything. He already serves very well but I think he will serve even better in the future.

I find that he manages to be aggressive on both sides, he moves extremely well, he is capable of volleying, making drop shots, defending, attacking.”

In addition to this juicy super star contract, Alcaraz would follow in the footsteps of legends such as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, since the brand born in Oregon committed to create its own logo, of which advances, details and design are not yet known.

Carlos Alcaraz joined Nike in 2019 after wearing the Lotto brand, a first contract with the Americans that extended until 2025 and would have a new life until 2035. The tennis player directed by Juan Carlos Ferrero, according to Forbes magazine, has become the second player with more revenue from sponsorship contracts and cash prizes of the tournaments he has played, only behind among the 38.4 million dollars of Novak Djokovic.

The Iberian reached 31.4 million, a player who is a figure of brands such as Rolex, Babolat, BMW, ElPozo, Isdin, Turismo de Murcia and Louis Vuitton.
