In the latest edition of the Inside-In podcast, well-known commentator Geoffrey Chizever analyzed Carlos Alcaraz’s recent performances. Chizever told: “He’s really amazing. Despite him being out for four months, Carlos Alcaraz returned in a big way and immediately won a title.
We are in front of a special player. I had almost forgotten how crazy Alcaraz’s athleticism was. I also really like his attitude on the court, he’s always smiling and you can see very well that he enjoys playing tennis. When you stop for several months due to injury, you lose your rhythm and it’s not easy to come back like he did.
Suffice it to say that Alexander Zverev has racked up three wins and five losses since he rejoined the tour after his ankle injury. We are talking about two different injuries, but I hope the concept is clear.” Recently, the former WTA number 1 Monica Seles spent beautiful words for the young Spaniard: “The way he played in 2022 left everyone speechless.
I had the chance to see him live during the Indian Wells Masters 1000 semifinal against Rafael Nadal and I was blown away by the intensity of him. He has scary mental strength for a boy his age.”
Carlos Alcaraz’s come back
Carlos Alcaraz was out for four months between the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.
The 19-year-old Spaniard had torn his abs during the Paris-Bercy Masters 1000, having to miss the ATP Finals in Turin and the finals of Davis Cup in Malaga. A further joke came in the first days of the new year, when he seemed all ready for his return to the Tour.
Carlos injured his leg in training and was unable to participate in the 2023 Australian Open, handing over the first position in the ATP ranking to Novak Djokovic. The Iberian’s seasonal debut took place on the red clay of Buenos Aires, where Alcaraz claw his seventh career title despite not expressing the best tennis of him.
Juan Carlos Ferrero’s protégé will have to defend many points in the coming months and it won’t be easy for him to handle the pressure either.
