Carlos Alcaraz could not hide his happiness after the title in Buenos Aires. What Alcaraz is disappointed about is the injury that caused him to miss the Australian Open. He is especially angry with himself because he didn't do the right things off the court to get back as early as possible.
“It’s really special. As I mentioned before, I struggled for four months,”- he said, as quoted by eurosport.com “I didn't do the right things off the court and I felt a little bit guilty after the injury and struggled with that; it was not easy.
To come here to my first tournament after four months, and to win my first title since the Us Open is a really special moment for me”. He is happy that he played in such an important tournament, and it will be a great prelude to what awaits him.
“It has been a great week for me. I started playing quite well, but I still had a lot to improve.
I think that from the match against [Dusan] Lajovic, in the quarter-finals, it seemed that I had not stopped competing.
I felt very well physically, very good tennis, very good on a mental level. It seemed like I had been playing for a long time, yes.
I take a lot of positive things from here, from each game, and with a view to the South American tour I hope that what lies ahead will also be super positive”.
Alcaraz achieved great success at a very young age. His ambitions remain the same. There are many beautiful moments behind him in 2022. "I have a nice year ahead of me,” he said.
"I defend some title or others, very nice tournaments await me and I hope to enjoy them.
As you said, I am fighting for No. 1 with Djokovic, [Stefanos] Tsitsipas, they are the ones who are closest, but that doesn't mean that there aren't other players behind.
There is a very wide range of possibilities and players who can win Grand Slams and who may be fighting for No.
1: I'm not going to start naming them because I don't want to leave any of them out, but there are seven or eight players there who would deserve it and who have the level to be at the top"
