Carlos Alcaraz has to be ready for all the pressures that come his way

Carlos Alcaraz

Carlos Alcaraz went through a truly sensational 2022 with a few mistakes, the most serious mistakes perhaps in Hamburg and Umag finals.

With a few months to go until the end of the 2022 season, but with several prestigious tournaments still to be played, the Spaniard can still dream big and be motivated to win a prestigious title before the end of the season, especially if he puts in his best form towards the end of the season, he could seriously think about reaching the top of the men’s tennis world.

The situation of world number 4 Alcaraz is in a pretty good position regarding the points he is likely to lose. In the 2021 season, the most important milestones in this section were the semifinals at Winston-Salem, which he would hardly defend against, the quarterfinals of the US Open, and the semifinals in Vienna.

The Spaniard is certainly motivated to at least repeat the feat and has commented during his match in Montreal for the 2022 season stating, “At Flushing Meadows (New York), I will try to overcome the quarter-finals.”

Playing well in Montreal and Cincinnati will put the 2022 Miami Open champions in a very good position for the next tournaments.

For now, there is still room to make another historic achievement, namely becoming the youngest world No. 1 tennis player currently held by Lleyton Hewitt (20 years 8 months 23 days). The distance that separates him from world number 1 Daniil Medvedev is about 2,800 points and the world number 1 can’t relax at all because of the points he has maintained quite a lot, namely 360 points in Cincinnati, 2,000 at the US Open, as well as the Paris Masters and ATP finals. Finals.

Speaking at a press conference, the Spaniard spoke about how pressure expectations and ratings played into his loss in Montreal.

“It was a fight against myself, a little bit,” admits Carlos Alcaraz. “I can’t show my best performance here. It must have been quite hard to cope with this moment knowing that I wasn’t playing at 100 per cent of my ability.”

“The thing I can say is that for the first time I couldn’t handle the pressure. I feel pressured to be the second seed in a tournament of this magnitude, number 4 in the world. For the first time I felt the pressure and I couldn’t handle it.”

“I have to train, I have to be ready to deal with that pressure, to face moments like that and learn how to deal with it.”
