He’s such a great, talented player, one of the best in the world. I’m sure that he’s going to be the best player in the world in that position. I’m just really, really happy to have him in the team. I talk a little bit with him.
He’s such a great person, as well. It’s a complete guy.”
Carlos Alcaraz on his path at the US Open
Defending champion Carlos Alcaraz continues his journey at the US Open. No problems in the night for the Spanish and world number one (although he will lose this position at the end of the tournament), dominated two sets and then won a third set in a tiebreak against the South African Lloyd Harris, returning after various difficulties.Excellent condition for Alcaraz who will face in the next round a challenge that is not very simple, the British Daniel Evans, however known for using a different game compared to the other protagonists of the circuit.In the press conference Carlos spoke about this and much more, here are his words in detail: “I played an excellent match and it’s also normal that the intensity drops a bit in the third set.
In Grand Slam matches you need extra energy to maintain the same level throughout the match and it is important to have closed this challenge in three sets. A victory that strengthens me mentally, I managed on several occasions to break the serve of a tennis player with an excellent serve like Harris and I continued with my aggressive tennis, even hitting the net sometimes.
I am very satisfied today with my level of tennis.”Then Carlos talked about the next match against Evans, a tennis player he has faced twice and won quite easily: “He is a difficult opponent to face, he serves very well and plays well at the net.
He will be difficult to deal with. I must also say that he is very good at golf, much better than me. I played with him before Wimbledon and we had a great time together.”The tennis player then talked about what is happening in these US Open: “It’s very nice to see how tennis players try to isolate themselves and maintain concentration, beyond their path.”This is not the case with Carlitos who is very attentive to what is happening around him: “I love watching other people’s matches and seeing the results, there are interesting matches during the Grand Slam tournaments and I check the results every hour.
I was surprised by the defeats of Rune, Ruud and Tsitsipas but you shouldn’t take every match for granted, it really is always like this.”
