Carlos Alcaraz, the young prodigy of Spanish tennis, is on fire and at Queen's he is a clear favorite to retain his title. After his victory over Francisco Cerúndolo on Tuesday, he not only assured his passage to the next round, but also made clear his desire to adjust his schedule to be able to support the Spanish national team at the European Championship.
In a post-match press conference, the Murcia native expressed his intention to request to play early on Thursday against Jack Draper in order to be able to watch Spain's crucial Euro match against Italy at 21:00 CEST. "The Euros is held every four years, now is the time to support and watch Spain. I will ask to play before," confirmed Alcaraz, showing his enthusiasm for soccer in addition to his passion for tennis.
Alcaraz, who is living an exceptional moment in his career, accumulating eight consecutive victories that include seven at Roland Garros and the most recent on grass, was satisfied with his performance in his first match on this surface this season. "I'm very happy with the level of play I showed today. I've barely had time to train on grass, only two sessions, but I managed to adapt quickly," shared the young tennis player.
Analyzing his match against Cerúndolo, Alcaraz described the development of the match, highlighting the evolution of his game throughout the match. "The first set was somewhat surreal. He made a lot of mistakes and I couldn't find my rhythm. Then, he started to play better, the exchanges were longer and more competitive. I was a bit surprised, but I managed to stay focused and find my game towards the end," explained Alcaraz, revealing his ability to adjust and overcome challenges on the court.
