Good News Regarding Carlos Alcaraz Before Roland Garros

Carlos Alcaraz hasn’t been at his best the last few weeks, but now there is good news for the Spanish tennis player and former world number one.

The Rome Masters 1000 is heading into its final stages filled with new faces. Alexander Zverev (5) is the only top-7 player who has made it to the quarterfinals of the last major event before a particularly uncertain Roland Garros.

The early eliminations of Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev, coupled with the injury absences of Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz, make it difficult to pick a favorite.

Fortunately, it seems that the tennis player from Murcia will have no trouble arriving in good condition in Paris. After 12 days without touching a racket, the reigning Wimbledon champion began testing himself in Murcia on Monday, and the sensations appear to be positive, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Alcaraz is improving with each training session, as can be seen in a video released this Wednesday in which, wearing the protection he has used in the last tournaments, he is seen hitting the ball strongly.

Undoubtedly, this is a good sign just over ten days before he starts his campaign for one of the big goals of the season, Roland Garros.

Things look much worse for his good friend Jannik Sinner. In recent days, reports in Italy have been circulating that the world number 2 will not make it in time for the event and would postpone his return until the grass tour.

Although the hip injury is not severe, the delicacy of the joint has led the doctors at J|Medical in Turin, the Juventus clinical center where he has been treated in recent days, to advise caution.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the player has been working at the center with his team, undergoing sessions of exercises in water and the gym that will end this Wednesday. At that point, the player will undergo new tests and evaluations after which his team will decide which path to follow.

The information from the Italian media suggests that it is most likely he will decide not to travel to Paris, where he would arrive with very little training and the risk of not being fully recovered.

Sinner suffers from severe inflammation of traumatic origin that must be treated carefully to prevent it from becoming chronic and compromising future plans. The Italian, who aims to take the number 1 spot from Djokovic, will not pick up a racket until the second half of this week. Then, Jannik will test training on the court to see how the joint reacts to being pushed harder.
