"I'm happy with the level of those I played today, I feel like I'm improving every day of the tournament. I'm adding training, I'm playing and perfecting my work. I think I've improved a lot on serve and I think I'm moving better than in the first match, I'm happy and satisfied with my shots. I hope to continue like this and raise my level even more."

Carlitos Alcaraz's Wimbledon draw was - at least in the first rounds - theoretically easy but despite this the first two matches reserved some small difficulties for the Spaniard, however able to qualify for the 3rd round of the Championships. And the words reported above and shared by Carlitos at the press conference give a fairly precise idea of ​​the situation. Against Australian Vukic Alcaraz in the 2nd round, Carlos closed with the result of 7-6 6-2 6-2, with the Spaniard who had some small difficulties in the first set, before dominating the last two sets.

Talking about the changes made in recent times, Carlitos shared at the press conference the new and interesting changes that he decided to introduce to his routine in order to better face what is the life of a tennis player.

"A lot of things have changed in recent times, I go to bed earlier and I tend to rest more, I also tend not to use the phone a lot and that for me has been difficult! I am dealing with some things and I want to do everything in my power to play at my best," he said.

In the next round Alcaraz will face the American tennis player Frances Tiafoe, a tricky opponent in any case.

"I have a great relationship with him as with many tennis players off the court but on the court no one is my friend. When you are on the court you have to focus only on yourself and you have to think about beating your opponent. Frances is a great tennis player and a great person, he always smiles and has fun both on and off the court. An impressive guy who tries to put on a show every time he goes out, it will be a very fun match to play and I will do everything to win. US Open 2022? It will be a totally different context, there we were at his home and instead here it will be a little different. We played a great match and it was very hard fought, five sets, I hope that this year things will not go the same way," explained Alcaraz at the press conference.

On the pressure of being the defending champion Alcaraz finally explained: "I have already been in this position, the last time at the US Open I didn't feel much pressure and I try not to think about it. This year for me it's the same thing, I just focus on everyday life and that's it."
