Carlos Alcaraz is the man to beat at the Roland Garros 2023. The Spanish tennis player got rid of Denis Shapovalov by conceding only 7 games to the Canadian, in a match completely dominated by the world number one. So far the Spaniard's path has been almost completely flawless, with only one set conceded in the second to Taro Daniel.
Carlos said in the press conference: "I'm very happy with how I played. In a Grand Slam it's important to stay on the court as little time as possible, because you'll need that energy in the other rounds. Being the match in the evening, it's even better to have finished in three sets, so it doesn't take much time for dinner, treatments and I can go to sleep not so late.
Last year I suffered a lot against Ramos in the second round, I remember that match perfectly, and I also had difficult matches in New York, so we'll see what happens here." On the match against Lorenzo Musetti, Alcaraz explained: "It will be a great challenge for me against Lorenzo.
He is playing very good tennis, he was able to beat very strong players and I can't wait to face him. I know it will be a tough and fun match, beat me in Hamburg, so I want a rematch. We have known each other well for years, we played many tournaments together when we were children and we have a great relationship off the court.
I'm sure it will continue for a long time."
The matches against the Italians
In reference to Sinner, the Spaniard said: "I have had the opportunity to play very few times with Lorenzo and Holger, but I have always said that every time I have met Jannik, they have been matches of maximum intensity at all levels: tennis, physical and mental .
He made me improve as a tennis player every time we met and I am convinced that it will be the same with the others. I mentioned and with other young players of my generation and those to come. " On his greatest virtues as a tennis player: "I'm a very complete player, who plays aggressively and I always put pressure on my opponent, pushing him to the limit.
I don't lose much concentration, I'm ready to play important points and my opponents have to do great things to be able to beat me." Carlos Alcaraz continues to increase his favors ahead of Roland Garros 2023, even if he has no room to lose concentration.
