Juan Carlos Ferrero Coach Carlos Alcaraz stated that his students love to play on grass and are now preparing to plan at Wimbledon next week.
The Spaniard has made a fantastic start to the 2022 season after he bagged four titles, including two Masters 1000 titles (Miami Open and Madrid Open). However, his strength has yet to be tested on grass after he has won just one of the two matches he has played on grass, with both of those matches at Wimbledon.
The 19-year-old after playing in the Queen’s Club Championships last week, but chose to skip the ATP level 500 after feeling uncomfortable in the elbow, which appeared to be wrapped in bandages.
After training for 2 hours at the All England Club, Carlos Ferrero told Eurosport the reason for the use of a bandage on Alcaraz’s elbow.
“The condition of the elbow has bothered him a bit, and the bandage has protected him a little bit,” said Carlos Ferrero.
Former world number 1 Carlos Ferrero was quick to add that the 2022 Barcelona Open champion loves playing on grass and is now preparing for Wimbledon this season.
“Carlos likes to play on grass, he likes to play here. Physically, he has been training well and in terms of his level of tennis, we have taken care of his elbow. That the ball was quite annoying bothered him a lot. This week is very important to prepare, to feel good and that everything is in the right place to fight,” said Juan Carlos Ferrero.
On his Wimbledon debut last season, Alcaraz lost in straight sets to second-seeded Daniil Medvedev in the second round.
Without playing a grasscourt tournament before appearing at Wimbledon for the second time, he could have set you free. Carlos Ferrero has tried to live up to expectations, observing that the Grand Slam in London is one of the most difficult to play.
“The Grand Slam is the most difficult Grand Slam, because it’s a tournament where you don’t have much time to prepare,” admits Carlos Ferrero.
“Physically you have to arrive better. this tournament is an unknown quantity. there are always surprises on this gridiron.”
