2023 Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz had started the 2023 season with a great pump and show delivering positive results in almost all the competitions he was participating in. But in the last few months, his form has dropped considerably, leading to him losing his World No. 1 spot Novak Djokovic, and now faces a serious scare of dropping down more.
The Spaniard started his ATP Finals campaign with a fire in his eyes to pick up silverware in the final tournament of the season. But he bowed out of the competition last night against rival Djokovic in a straight set 6-3, 6-2 loss.
After the match, at the press match conference, he talked about how he would take the match as a lesson and improve based on this. He also revealed how he wants to forget his past matches against Djokovic, where he got the better of him.
This match will help me a lot coming into the pre-season. Right now I know all the things I have to improve if I want to be there if I want to beat the best player in the world. Obviously, I'll rewatch the match to see my weakness, just to improve it and be a better player. I will forget all the matches that I played against him, the Wimbledon final, the Cincinnati, Roland Garros, and I'm going to focus on this match because I feel like I have to improve a lot of things if I want to be at his level.
The fall of Carlos Alcaraz in the last few months
The recent form of Alcaraz has got his fans worried, with the youngster completely going from the top to rock bottom in the space of three to four months. After his impressive victory over Djokovic in the Wimbledon final, he has failed to win a single silverware in the last four months.
Losing the Cincinnati Masters in the finals, and failing to move out of the first round at the Paris Masters, completely put a worry on the shoulders of his supporters. Among his other performances are his quarter-final finish at the Canadian Open, the round-of-16 finish at the Shanghai Masters, and the semi-final finish at the China Masters.
