"I have always said that you have to take things to improve and from the match I lost against Alexander Zverev at the Australian Open I learned many things.
After Australia I had regular weeks, I didn't feel comfortable and I couldn't find my game. Furthermore, all this made me have less fun on the court.

I think I also changed how I felt off the court and that particularly helped me. At Indian Wells I played golf almost every day and that helped me a lot. Indian Wells was the turning point for me and at the moment we are all good and calm."

After a few negative months, Carlos Alcaraz is now fully back as the protagonist of the ATP Tour. The Spaniard won the BNP Paribas Open, the first ATP Masters 1000 of the season which was played in Indian Wells and, now, he wants to break every record of precociousness by trying to complete the Sunshine Double.

Seeing the condition of all the big names, the Spanish champion seems to be the big favorite in Miami and, even in the round of 16 against Lorenzo Musetti, he showed all his superiority, beating him with a double 6-3. Now they dream of a great final between Carlitos and Jannik Sinner.

Alcaraz expressed on the match won against Musetti and on his next opponent

In the post-match press conference the Spanish talent, in addition to what we said at the beginning of the article, also revealed other feelings about the match he played and his next start.

"I love being here in Miami, it's a really wonderful tournament and I really like the city too. The energy I feel here is special, the people are incredible and they cheer a lot, they are really involved in this sport. Miami was the first big tournament I won, I played special matches and I have really good memories of this tournament, for me it is more special than the others," said Carlitos.

Alcaraz lost his last match against Grigor Dimitrov - his next opponent in the Miami quarterfinals - even though he leads the head-to-head matches 3-1.

"I don't remember well, but I will try to show my best game against Dimitrov, it will be a difficult challenge but let's see how it goes. Against Musetti, he knew what to do in important moments, he played well but I'm happy with my performance, it was a complete performance. There are so many positives to take advantage of," he explained.
