Carlos Alcaraz celebrates in Miami

‘I’m ready to do it!’ – Carlos Alcaraz lays down Grand Slam credentials

Teen sensation Carloz Alcaraz has reiterated his self-belief saying that he feels ready to win a major title

The 18-year-old Alcaraz has made incredible strides in 2022, with the man from Murcia becoming the youngest player in Tour history to win an ATP 500 event and also becoming the youngest ever Miami Open champion. 

Alcaraz has continued his great form on clay too, as the 19-year-old claimed back-to-back titles for the first time in his career in Barcelona and Madrid.

The victory in Madrid last week meant that Alcaraz is now sitting at a career high sixth in the world as he looks to “rest and recover” ahead of only his second French Open appearance.

Now, Carlos Alcaraz has discussed his Grand Slam title hopes stating that he is ready to win a Major title.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Argentinian newspaper La Nacion, Alcaraz said, “I’m not afraid to say that I’m ready to win a Grand Slam.

“Physically I feel very well. I am mentally strong. I am a strong player and in the end that is what it takes to win a Grand Slam. Now the level is accompanying me. I feel good and quite confident – I’m not afraid to say I’m ready to do it.”

The Spaniard continued saying he still hasn’t become number one in the ATP rankings, it helps him to remain grounded and realize that he has a long way to go in order to reach his goals.

“I am also a guy who is quite clear about things.

“I am clear about my goal, I am clear about my dream, which is to be number one in the world and no matter how many tournaments come, no matter how many things come right now, I still haven’t managed to be number one. It helps me to be with my feet on the ground to continue trying to fulfill my dreams.”
