‘More grand slams’: Carlos Alcaraz already has sights set on 2023 glory after US Open triumph
The 25-year old is currently in the top five in the US Open men’s draw
He was the runner-up to Novak Djokovic at the Australian Open last year
Carlos Alcaraz has no plans to take up tennis after he reached the last eight in the US Open men’s singles draw with another Grand Slam title.
The 25-year-old from Mexico won the US Open men’s singles event on Sunday after a 6-2 7-6 (5) victory over US wildcard Matthew Ebden.
The victory earned Alcaraz the top spot in the world rankings, his highest for several years.
Despite having reached two ATP finals on the circuit, Alcaraz’s first Grand Slam semi-final was not enough to win a Grand Slam title.
The win in New York means he is positioned to take the No 1 position in the rankings before the Australian Open in January 2020 and after that US Open in November 2020.
On the eve of his US Open triumph, Alcaraz admitted his career is progressing.
In the interview with Sky Sports, he said: “I’m really happy and more than satisfied with it.
“Tennis is not something I focus on, it’s a sport that is very difficult, but it is an experience that I had three or four years ago, and I am enjoying it.
“I am enjoying it. And we will see what the future brings.”
On winning his maiden Grand Slam semi-final, Alcaraz said: “It was a good way to end this year.
“It’s something that made me happy.”
