Carlos Alcaraz: 'It's not a lack of confidence in my...'

In each tournament he participates in, Carlos Alcaraz now comes out as one of the main favorites for the title. The Spanish tennis player is already one of the candidates to win the different events on the tour, although he still has to take the decisive step in the super big ATP events.

Now the Murcian will be planted in the Canadian Masters 1000 as the second seed, something that at the beginning of 2022 seemed practically impossible. “I have grown very fast. Reaching a Masters 1000 as the second seed is something incredible that I did not expect at the beginning of the year.

Honestly, I don't even believe it right now. It's something I've wanted since the beginning of the season, to be at the top and, of course, to be one of the favorites to win the most important tournaments, "he said in statements taken up by ' Punto de Break '

Alcaraz has had to deal with constant surface changes in recent weeks, where he has gone from the grass at Wimbledon to the clay of a couple of tournaments in Europe and now to the hard court in North America. “I have changed a lot of surface in recent times.

I do specific work to find the sensations in each of them. I am Carlitos Alcaraz and I will always be the same”, concluded the number four in the world at a press conference. Carlos Alcaraz arrives with an important load of matches, so his performance at the US Open could be conditioned by everything and that he is barely 19 years old.

Do you see the Spanish tennis player winning a big event in this season finale?

What's next for Alcaraz?

Asked on the sidelines of the Montreal tournament where he is one of the favorites, Carlos Alcaraz confirmed that he did not think that he and his young colleagues were going to be able to write the history of this sport as the Big 3 did previously.

“I don't think we'll be able to imitate them. It's not a lack of confidence in my abilities or those of my colleagues, but I don't think that me and the other young people can repeat what has been done by Federer, Nadal and Djokovic.

We're talking about an impossible feat and that's not on my mind right now. I prefer to keep my head and feet firmly anchored in the present." Earlier this week, the 22-time Grand Slam champion pulled out of the National Bank Open in Montreal after failing to recover in time from his abdominal injury. He suffered this injury during his quarterfinal match against Taylor Fritz at Wimbledon.
