Current World No.1, Carlos Alcaraz, made his first training in the courts of Wimbledon this Saturday, a player looking for the best preparation on the lawn to go to the defense of his title in the cathedral of tennis from the first of July.

The 21-year-old Spaniard comes from winning his third Grand Slam at Roland Garros, but was unable to defend his title at Queen’s ATP 500 by falling in the second round with local idol Jack Draper.

The official social network X account of the third Grand Slam of the season shared images of the Spanish champion in his first training in London, a smiling Carlos Alcaraz who has already done physical and racket work to fine-tune his game in the face of a tournament that starts next July 1st.

With the defeat in the British ATP 500 last week, Alcaraz will lose in the ATP classification 450 points and will descend to the third position of the gentlemen classification. The 21-year-old Spaniard faces an important stage of the season in which he must defend the 2,000 points he scored last year after defeating Novak Djokovic in the definition of the English Major.

Alongside Janik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz will be the big favourite for the title at Wimbledon in a week.

Carlos Alcaraz will try to improve his image after an unexpected defeat and especially very stinging against Jack Draper at Queen’s. The Spaniard has no right to make mistakes at Wimbledon where he is the defending champion and he will try to prepare as well as possible before hitting the centre court of the All England Club.

Meanwhile, the 3-time Grand Slam champion has received a very bad news ( which does not concern him only ) and which will affect him for his participation in the Olympics.

Coaching, which is the latest addition to tennis, will not be allowed at the Olympic Games in Paris. The code of conduct published by the ITF, clearly implies that players will under no circumstances have the right to use their coaches during the Olympics under penalty of a fine of up to 15,000 pounds in addition to the possibility of expelling the coach from the stadium and penalty points for the player concerned.
