Carlos Alcaraz beat Tommy Paul in four sets to reach the semifinals of Wimbledon for the second year and will play again against Daniil Medvedev. While the third Grand Slam of the year is being played at the All England Club, the European Football Championship is being held in Germany and he tries to watch Spain whenever he can.
Already before the match, he expressed his wish that his quarterfinal match would not coincide with the national team's semifinal match against France. "Let's hope that on Tuesday we don't play at the same time. But we'll see," Alcaraz said over the weekend. "Hopefully I can see a little bit of the match."
Finally, Alcaraz was not lucky enough to play in the first slot, so his match overlapped somewhat with the one that was being played in Munich. The player from Murcia assured that during his match he did not think about the Spanish match, but he admitted that right at the end, when he was 5-1 up in the fourth, it did cross his mind to try to win as soon as possible to be able to watch the whole match.
"Honestly, at the beginning of the match I didn't think about it. Once I felt like I dominated the match, 5-1 in the fourth set, yeah, I thought about it (smiles). I thought a little bit that I was on time. I wasn't... When I finished, I did everything in a hurry to get there in time to see a little bit of Spain."
Spain plays the Euro final next Sunday at 9 p.m. CEST. If they qualify, He will play the Wimbledon final on the same day at around 3:00 p.m. CEST if he gets through. We suppose he won't be thinking of rushing on that day, or will he?

Daniil Medvedev

This Friday Carlitos will play again in the semifinals against Daniil Medvedev, who defeated Jannik Sinner against all odds. The Russian is playing very solid all week and the Spaniard to beat him will not be able to afford the inconsistency in the first sets that he is having against the rest of his rivals.
