The reigning champion at the Championships is the main suspect, along with rival Jannik Sinner, to raise the prestigious trophy. A responsibility, that of having to defend the title, which does not weigh on the Iberian phenomenon: "It makes it even more special.

I’m trying not to think about the pressure I have to defend points or the desire to go far. The difference from last year is that I’m more mature. I know how to play on grass, I have more experience on this surface," he said in an interview with CNN.

The professional tennis tour is celebrating the third Grand Slam of the season, Wimbledon, a tournament that brings together the best tennis players in the world, who fight for glory in the Cathedral of tennis, a tournament that is played with the classic five-set format.

Carlos Alcaraz is aware that repeating the success of last year will have to pass on the 'corpse' of many opponents of absolute level.

Many already expect the possible semi-final against Sinner. The 21-year-old is more cautious and replies: "Everyone wants to see Jannik’s match against me in the semifinals and then either Jannik or I play the final against Novak.

Everyone wants it, but it’s a very long process, a very long road, so we’ll see if I can find myself in that position," he said, denoting a bit of superstition. Alcaraz then projected himself further, daydreaming.

His career goal is granted only to the legends of the sport, but he is on the right path: "I want to be one of the best ever. I want to sit at the same table as the Big 3, the legends of our sport.

To achieve this dream, I want to be surrounded by brands and people who share this with me, who think big. I’ve had great results so far, but it’s something I don’t want to think about, I’m already looking ahead," he concluded.
