Carlos Alcaraz’s brothers, Alvarao, Sergio, and Jaime Alcaraz, have all shown interest in tennis. Carlos and his brothers were raised in Spain.
Ranked world no.2 by the ATP, Carlos Alcaraz’s success at a young age has many tennis fans believe he will be the next generation superstar.
Last year, Carlos became the youngest world no.1 in ATP history after winning the U.S. Open.
Unfortunately, the Spanish tennis star didn’t participate in the Australian Open 2023 due to an injury. If it weren’t for the injury, we might’ve got to watch the teenager against the current world no.1, Novak Djokovic.
In the ongoing Madrid Open, Alcaraz has entered the Round of 16, defeating Grigor Dimitrov. He will face world no.16 Alexander Zverev next, with Zvrev hoping to get revenge against Alcaraz for last year’s defeat in the finals.
