“I can't say I'm going to play my 100%”: Carlos Alcaraz provides fitness update ahead of Madrid Open

Spain’s young tennis star Carlos Alcaraz has revealed he is not sure about playing in the upcoming Madrid Open. The 20-year-old is often regarded as one of the most highly-rated players currently playing in the men’s singles category alongside Italy’s Jannik Sinner.
Alcaraz has been struggling with a forearm injury in the recent past which is why he ended up missing the Monte-Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open. The reigning world number three, who is also the defending champion at the Madrid Open, was recently quoted in a report where he stated that he is not 100 per cent sure of playing in the upcoming mega-event but that things are going well and he is trying to avoid getting into trouble by rushing ahead of a busy season where two Grand Slams are to be played in the space of two months.
"There are still days until my first match,” said Alcaraz. “Today I trained more intensely, things are going well, I have good feelings. I don't want to rush, I don't want to get into trouble with myself. I can't say I'm going to play my 100% because I don't know, I don't take anything for granted. Right now, with the feelings this morning and the mentality I have, I would be happy with playing 3-4 games.”
