Even one of the idols of the house Denis Shapovalov, who arrived at the Media Day of the Canadian Master 1000, spoke about the Spanish in a press conference: "I try to be positive, I tell myself in every moment that things will change and the work will pay off.

The match against De Miñaur will be very interesting. Carlos? He is a good guy, humble and I have no doubt that he will be a great champion in the short term. I consider him a good role model for young people."

The qualities available to the Iberian are many and his playing style also has the characteristics to entertain the spectators, since he absolutely does not disdain the net descents and volleys from any part of the court A boy capable of exploiting almost every opportunity he had and created during the 2022 season: the semifinal at Indian Wells and immediately after the victory at the Master 1000 in Miami were unforgettable; on clay, a surface on which he exalts himself, he was able to conquer Barcelona and Madrid, even beating the Serbian champion Novak Djokovic.
