Carlos Alcaraz, in Buenos Aires, won an official match again more than three months after his last appearance, dating from last season, when he suffered an abdominal tear at the Masters 1000 in Paris Bercy, which made him miss the first and deserved ATP Finals.
A victory, the one achieved against the feisty Laslo Djere, was not without difficulties for the young Spanish champion, who, due to the long period of inactivity, had trouble maintaining a high level throughout the match.
Now, the Spanish tennis player has no intention of stopping and wants to return to crushing points and performances from clay, which contributed enormously, with the victories in the tournaments in Barcelona and especially Madrid, to the ride that last year led him to the end of the season to the historical record of the youngest tennis player to reach the record in the history of the ATP Ranking.
With the victory in the round of 16 against the Serbian, the current US Open champion, reached victory number 28 of the 32 matches played on clay since the start of 2022. Nobody has done better than him in this period on this surface , not even the “King of Clay” Rafael Nadal.
The hit percentage (87.5%) is really impressive and recalls the numbers of his compatriot. The question arises spontaneously for all the fans of the young Spaniard. Will he be able to follow in the footsteps of the 22-time Grand Slam champion on the red clay over the years? The 19-year-old recently declared that he suffered from not being able to defend the world number one crown that was snatched from him at the Australian Open by tournament winner Novak Djokovic.

Carlos Alcaraz won his seventh ATP title at the Argentina Open on Sunday. “I try to work every day, in each training session, to be able to have a good mental level. Also, I try to surround myself with my family, my team, my family and my friends.
When I’m not playing tennis I consider myself a normal boy who he does normal things, and that helps me a lot to disconnect, which is important,” the Spaniard said. “I try not to put that pressure on myself of being the youngest to achieve something, be it a tournament, number one… I go to the track to enjoy myself, to have fun Well, try to improve. That’s my goal,” Alcaraz added.
