The player from Murcia has pushed himself to the limit to reach the quarterfinals of the Madrid Open for the third consecutive year.

Carlos Alcaraz arrived at the Madrid Open with doubts about his participation due to an injury in his right pronator. This Tuesday, he faced a tough test on his way to the quarterfinals of the tournament.

“There was a bit of panic from my physio and the team, but the truth is I finished very well. There are moments when you unconsciously tense up your right side and have some doubts, but it’s okay,” he said, according to Marca.

“I’m playing at home in front of my people, and the affection I receive here is extraordinary. I look forward to this tournament all year,” he said about the feeling of playing in Madrid. 

Alcaraz was quite happy with the result, but there was one thing that he found very difficult. He had to control his emotions during the match, which wasn’t very easy for him to do.

“Truthfully, it was incredible for me to play at this level for nearly three hours. It’s difficult to manage emotions during the match. I felt the tension up to the last point, and that caused the ups and downs I experienced. But this is tennis, and you have to deal with these kinds of things. I managed to control my emotions by the end of the match and will have a new opportunity in the next round.”

Alcaraz can also be proud of having reached a streak of 14 consecutive wins, matching none other than Rafael Nadal.

“It’s a great achievement to do this in such a special place as Madrid. Being part of the tournament’s history with Rafa is wonderful.”

“Having won three matches, I can only think about winning the title.”
