What makes the best athletes in the world is the constant desire to be the best. All athletes who have understood their calling to be the best in the world have mostly succeeded in doing so. Those who are content only to be in the company of the best always remain in some shadow.
Of course, this desire is more present in youth, so Alacaraz's statement that he made before the tournament in Beijing attracted a lot of attention.
Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz said today in Beijing that his main goal is to return to the first place in the ATP list and added that he has great motivation to achieve good results in tournaments until the end of the season, reports the British Express.
Alcaraz will play this week at the ATP tournament in Beijing. He is currently in second place on the ATP list with 3,260 points less than the first-placed Novak Djokovic. " It is a big fight for the first place, especially after the great performance that Novak had on the American tour.
Right now he's number one, so I come here with extra motivation to try to get back to the top. It's something I keep in mind every time I train, I think about it every tournament. It is not mandatory for me to regain the first position either, but I have to set goals.
The number one position is one of my main goals. In the next tournaments, I will try to achieve good results so that I can return to the first place "- said Alkaraz at the press conference in Beijing.

"Next year I will try to play four Grand Slams, I hope I won't miss any of them. I'll try to do the same things I'm doing this year. I am happy with my results in 2023 so far. The season is not over yet, I have a few more tournaments to come.
I hope to finish the season successfully - concluded the Spanish tennis player, who is playing in the tournament in Beijing for the first time in his career". In the first round of the tournament in Beijing, Alkaraz will play against qualifier Yannick Hanfmann from Germany.
