The 3-time Grand Slam champion - after the five-set battle against Frances Tiafoe in the previous round - defeated Frenchman Ugo Humbert and struggled more than expected.

Former World Number 1 struggled to stay focused throughout the match and was the victim of numerous empty passes that could become dangerous.

Meanwhile, Carlos Alcaraz has reached a ninth Men’s Singles QF from 14 Grand Slam main draws entered.

Carlos Alcaraz is a 3-time Grand Slam champion and he really loves tennis. Spanish ace is much loved by fans all over the world. "These are very good compliments that I accept.

It feels good to hear that, but I don’t feel like the savior of tennis. In the end, tennis is evolving, obviously we have had a very nice stage with Federer, Rafa and Djokovic. We continue to enjoy Djokovic, Roger we can no longer and Rafa what he can play and what he is playing," said the manager of Juan Carlos Ferrero before facing the American Frances Tiafoe in the third round of the English tournament.

Alcaraz also extended praise to his peers, colleagues he admires and also enjoys watching them play. "We try to put good tennis, we try to make people enjoy. There are many players who are also pretty to see. I enjoy when people enjoy it, but I’m no savior of tennis nor do I approach it," confessed the champion of three Grand Slams.

‘Carlitos’ has repeatedly explained that he wants to become one of the best players ever and is committed to achieving this goal every day. Juan Carlos Ferrero’s pupil had some physical problems this year, before winning the Indian Wells Masters 1000 and the French Open.
