Carlos Alcaraz Garfia’s coach: A few insights
Carlos Alcaraz is currently coached by Juan Carlos Ferrero who is himself a former world no.1 tennis player who was called “mosquito” for his fast speed and slender build. He had won the men’s singles title at the 2003 French Open.
He started coaching him in September 2018 when the Spaniard was just 15-years-old and is still looking after the young players’ gameplay. Juan Carlos Ferrero Donat has high expectations from young Alcaraz as is often depicted in interviews.
He has a very good level. I know he’s 16 years old and he’s very far away still from professional but it was a good opportunity for me to reset a little as a coach after the experience that I had with [Alexander] Zverev,” said Ferrero in an old interview.
The Spanish coach has definitely improved his playing style and garnered more accomplishments under him. Alcaraz has won 3 ITF, 4 ATP Challenger 125 trophies, and 1 ATP 250 title under him to date.
