Carlos Alcaraz dreams of winning Wimbledon saying ‘of course I see it as possible’
Teen sensation Carlos Alcaraz believes that he can win Wimbledon as he aims to emulate the success of the greatest Spanish player of all time, Rafael Nadal.
The 19-year-old Alcaraz is one of the form players on the ATP Tour this year having won four titles including two Masters 1000 titles.
At the Madrid Open, where he went on to win his second Masters 1000 title, the man from Murcia beat both Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals and Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals, making him the first man to ever defeat the two Grand Slam legends back-to-back at the same tournament on clay.
Following his French Open quarter-final exit at the hands of Alexander Zverev, he was set to make his 2022 grass-court debut at the Queen’s Club Championships this week, but an elbow injury forced him to withdraw from the event.
However, he is expected to be fit for Wimbledon, which starts on June 27, and he believes he can challenge for the title.
In a recent interview, when asked about the likelihood of him winning the title, he said, “Of course, I see it as possible. In the end, it’s the dream I’m looking for. It’s what I work for every day.”
Carlos Alcaraz continued, stating he wishes to emulate Rafael Nadal’s success and play in “historic matches” just like him at Wimbledon.
“Everyone remembers the 2008 final between Nadal and Federer, considered one of the best matches in history and it was spectacular.
