Carlos Alcaraz bid farewell to the Queen’s tournament the day before yesterday, he bid farewell to the tournament, but not to the facilities since he has resumed training at the London club in order to continue to adapt to the grass and to prepare physically to arrive in the best possible conditions at Wimbledon that he wants to win above all.

The Spaniard has confirmed that he will not play any tournament before the Grand Slam his priority being for the moment not to make another misstep like the one he made against Jack Draper.

Juan Carlos Ferrero was not able to attend the Queen’s tournament with the world number three but he will be present this Sunday or Monday alongside his pupil to guide him before Wimbledon.

Speaking of his coach, Carlos Alcaraz thinks he might get a little slapped on the wrist as he confessed on behalf of the Team: "  Now I know he’s angry to have seen me lose.

But we have time ahead of us and I am very excited to play Wimbledon’s very first game on Central Court.". Remember that Ferrero is like a second father for Carlitos who always follows his advice, it is useless to say that he does well since he is one of the best players on the planet at only 21 years old.

In a recent interview, ATP legend Boris Becker talked about the rivalry between Alcaraz and Sinner: “It is impossible to say which of the two players will dominate tennis in the years to come.

From a young age, at 22 and 21, they both had pressure. If we compare them with Roger Federer, [Rafael] Nadal and Novak Djokovic, [they have] to play for another 15 years.”

Novak Djokovic is recovering from his meniscus surgery but he has just received good news. Indeed, the Serbian will take the place of world number two next week all without playing a single game.

The reason? Carlos Alcaraz unexpectedly eliminated in the Queen’s round of 16 against Jack Draper.
