Juan Carlos Ferrero is enjoying the fruits of his labor and, above all, he is enjoying the talent of Carlitos Alcaraz. The young Spaniard's coach praised his player, revealing, as reported by MARCA, what his new goal will be. Ferrero also revealed that Carlitos still has a lot of room for improvement, which they will work on.

"He still has a lot of room for improvement and we will continue to work on it. He is only 21 years old. It's clear that we will ask him to win the Australian Open next year. It would be a really great achievement. We know that in every tournament he competes in he will be one of the favorites. Obviously the Slams are our big priority, but we still have to improve. It is important that he remains relaxed so that the pressure of being one of the best does not weigh on him too much and he can continue to play his best tennis," said Ferrero.

The team and Carlitos himself will now focus on the grass with the Queen's and Wimbledon events, in which he will be called upon to defend the titles obtained in 2023. A back-to-back would allow Alcaraz to attempt an assault on number 1 Jannik Sinner later this year. Alcaraz won his 3rd career Major at Roland Garros. The youngest tennis player to win at least one Grand Slam on all three playing surfaces: US Open on hard courts in 2022, Wimbledon on grass in 2023 and now Roland Garros on clay in 2024.

The Spaniard continues to break precocity records with each of his triumphs: the next objective in his sights is the Olympic Games, which will be played in Paris on the caly-courts of the French Open. The young Spaniard will play both singles and doubles, with his legendary countryman Rafael Nadal.
