Former World No.1 Carlos Alcaraz appears to have put his Australian Open woes behind him, as the Spaniard was spotted training in Buenos Aires ahead of the Argentine Open with coach, Juan Carlos Ferrero.
The reigning Wimbledon champion fell to German Alexander Zverev in the Melbourne quarterfinals two weeks ago. Interestingly enough, Alcaraz did not play any warm-up tournaments prior to the first Grand Slam of the year, a fact that many fans believed was responsible for his upset in Australia.

Alcaraz looking to kick off clay-season with title in Buenos Aires
Being the top seed at the Argentina Open, the Spaniard is the clear favorite to lift the title. With Great Britain's Cameron Norrie and Chile's Nicolas Jarry set as the next two top seeds at the event, Alcaraz could have an easier path to the final. Nonetheless, the two-time Grand Slam champion appears ready to take on all challengers, based on video footage circulating of him practicing on the clay courts of Buenos Aires. Alcaraz's coach and former French Open champion Ferrero was seen analyzing his student's play, and the duo seem ready to tackle the rest of the 2024 season.
