After a great American tour that includes the Indian Wells Masters championship, Carlos Alcaraz is gearing up for the European clay court season, which begins in Monte-Carlo next week.


The Spaniard has a lot of points to defend (2,265 in total), including titles in Barcelona and Madrid, as well as a semi-final finish at Roland-Garros. However, after resuming his winning streak at Indian Wells, Alcaraz is filled with confidence and motivation for what promises to be a fantastic clay season.


His main ambition, of course, is Roland-Garros, where he has steadily improved over time. Following a quarter-final in 2022 and a semi-final in 2023, the 20-year-old aims to advance this time and win the Coupe des Mousquetaires on June 9.


“Roland Garros is a special tournament for Spaniards because of Rafa’s achievements, and it would be amazing for me to win it even once…” “I’m going to try,” he declared at a ceremony in Spain where he received the National Sports Award.



“I have matured and evolved. Two years ago, I was in the quarter-finals; last year, I played in the semi-finals; now my goal is to go to the final or win […]. “I come to clay with a lot of desire and enthusiasm.”


Carlos Alcaraz also discussed the Paris Olympics and his potential doubles partnership with Rafael Nadal. The 2023 Wimbledon champion expects that the 22-time Grand Slam champion will be physically prepared for the battle.


“At the time, I have no idea about his condition or how he is doing. “Obviously, as a Spaniard and tennis player, I’m concerned about that,” he stated. “Let’s see how he and I get there; there are still four months left.” Anything is possible, but I am hoping it will happen.”
