Carlos Alcaraz has done it again, winning his fifth ATP Masters 1000 title by successfully defending his Madrid Title against Jan-Lennard Struff this past Sunday (May 7th). The rise of this young tennis sensation has been nothing short of astonishing, and his recent form is proof of his skill and determination. When asked what could possibly prevent him from achieving further success, Alcaraz stated that his only fear is injuries.
“Injuries. I have to take care of my body. I’m not worried about lacking motivation or getting tired of playing, traveling. Because I know that’s not gonna happen,” stated Alcaraz with utmost confidence.
Alcaraz seemed pretty confident about always being motivated and avoiding fatigue. His unwavering confidence in big matches has also been made evident by his performances and recent comments. He has won 10 out of the 13 finals he has played. Carlos Alcaraz also said that he is not like the rest because, during tough moments, he is able to make a difference by doing the right things.
Carlos Alcaraz had a good beginning to his season, but injuries soon followed. His injury problems began last November when he had to withdraw from the quarter-finals at the Paris Masters due to an abdominal injury. He also had a strained hamstring in March 2023 and he had to pull out of a tournament in Mexico. Carlos Alcaraz claimed that his self-confidence helped him conquer his injuries during the season start and be back at his very best.
Carlos Alcaraz equals Rafael Nadal’s record and jumps closer to Novak Djokovic in the world rankings
Carlos Alcaraz becomes the only player after Rafael Nadal to win consecutive Madrid championships. He also became the youngest player(20), since Rafael Nadal, to successfully defend an ATP Masters 1000 title. The match against Jan-Lennard Struff was tight and Carlos Alcaraz struggled several times but emerged victorious.
Alcaraz has now jumped closer to claiming the World No.1 ranking from Novak Djokovic. Djokovic has already missed the Madrid Open after suffering an injury and is not certain about taking part in Rome. Carlos Alcaraz only has to play once in Rome to claim the World No.1 ranking. This will make him head into the French Open as the World No.1.
