What can be said about a boy like Carlos Alcaraz, who arrived early at the top of world tennis with amazing victories and sparkling tennis? A star, that of Alcaraz, destined to shine and dominate in the coming years. The three Majors won at the age of 21 on as many different surfaces testify to the greatness of this young tennis player who, month after month, rewrites the history of tennis with records of precociousness. Since his arrival in the Top 5 in July 2022, following the Hamburg final, Alcaraz has accumulated 100 consecutive weeks of presence in the top 5 positions of the ATP rankings.

Going into more detail, excluding a period of six weeks, between July and August 2022, and seven weeks between April and May this year, for 87 weeks, the young Spaniard even occupied one of the top 2 positions in the men's ranking. Furthermore, for 36 weeks he was number 1 in the world. What else can you say to a 21 year old of his talent?

Carlitos is preparing for the grass season, which last year saw him protagonist of an extraordinary run of 12 consecutive victories, which allowed him to win trophies at the Queen's Club and Wimbledon.

"I have more matches in the bank on grass and now, thanks to the great success I had last year at Queen's and Wimbledon, I know a little bit how to play and understand the game a little bit on grass. I am more mature when I play on grass surface. In the first training sessions I did here, my movements were not as good as last year, but it's a slow process, so I have to be very focused in every training session and in every match. We have to focus on the tournament we are playing. Roland Garros was a fantastic time for me, a dream that came true by lifting the trophy. But now my mind has to be here, on the grass, to be ready. As soon as I can, I will play good tennis and prepare for Wimbledon. Right now I'm focusing on the grass and then after that my mind will be back on the clay to be at my best for the Olympics," he told.

The career of the 21-year-old Spaniard continues to increasingly take on the contours of a long and overwhelming dominance at the top, probably shared with another young rival such as Jannik Sinner. After the success at Roland Garros, Carlitos regained the 2nd position in the world ranking, overtaking Novak Djokovic and chasing the new Italian record holder.
