All eyes on Carlos Alcaraz

Last September, Carlos Alcaraz became number one in the tennis world, a ranking he held for more than four months making him the youngest top-ranked player ever.

As industry veterans, including his on-court opponents like Novak Djokovic, predict that he is a legend in the making, Alcaraz seems unstoppable. 

Yet the Spanish 19-year old is no stranger to the ups and downs of a tennis career. An abdominal injury at the Paris Masters slowed down his 2022 season and he missed the Australian Open 2023 due to another accident. But since his comeback last month he has been stronger than ever bringing titles in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, and has won 14 of 15 matches in 2023.

“I try to make the people enjoy watching tennis… I felt the love from the people. I think the US Open help me a lot to have a lot of people behind me, supporting me,” he said. “I am ambitious and my goals are big, I'm not going to lie. My dream is to be one of the best in history,” commented Alcaraz on his plan to conquer the industry in the coming years.
