With his victory at the US Open 2022, the young prodigy Carlos Alcaraz has risen to the top of the world. The 19-year-old talent from Murcia not only took home his first Grand Slam title but also became the youngest player in history to become number one.
In the last hours, the interviews for the young and talented tennis player rained down and Alcaraz spoke to the microphones of Gaia Piccardi for Corriere della Sera. Here are the words of her specifically. He said: "After the final I almost did not believe it, I feel like a normal person but all this is incredible.
I never thought I'd reach these results at just 19 years old." Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner, the two tennis players have challenged each other several times in recent months and have proven to be the present and the future of this sport.
Carlos Alcaraz: "Jannik Sinner is a great person"
Sinner got the better of Wimbledon and Umag while here in Flushing Meadows Alcaraz canceled a match point for the Italian team and won the match in five tough sets. The Iberian tennis player revealed about his relationship with Sinner.
He added: "I understood that I could win the match during the match against Jannik Sinner. He motivates me and I think I have the same effect on him, it's a nice rivalry. Five hours and 20 minutes of a match, it doesn't happen very often.
He and I are friends, his Spanish is not the best and I don't have perfect English but we understand each other straight away. As a tennis player there is no question but it was the person who struck me, he is a very friendly guy." The Spanish tennis player has achieved several records and obtained incredible numbers in this first phase of his career, but he seems far from intending to stop.
The Murcian champion also talked about his private life explaining: "Sometimes I miss friends and stay up late at night, in general I have fun with little. Passions? Padel, golf and cheering Real Madrid. At the moment I'm single, the love hasn't arrived yet."
