Sensational 19-year-old US Open champion, Carlos Alcaraz is already headed back to his homeland, Spain to join his teammates. Alcaraz, who recorded the youngest Grand Slam champion since 2006. After a couple of fantastic weeks in New York, Carlos Alcaraz returned to Spain after a few hours of celebrating in the Time Square of New York.
“I’m proud to arrive as No. 1 and do my bit for the team,” Alcaraz said. He added, “Playing the Davis cup is always special. It’s a unique atmosphere and I’m looking forward to being with the team.” On Wednesday, Spain has a group stage match against Serbia, however, Spain’s team captain, Sergi Bruguera cleared the doubtfulness of Carlos playing on Wednesday. Even though, he is almost tired after a dramatic four-setter final against the Casper Ruud on Sunday. He described his New York morning as “woke up dead”, still he confirmed himself of him supporting his fellow Spaniard in the Davis Cup Finals.

Captain Bruguera said, “We will see how he is feeling, we will discuss it with him. The sooner he can play, the better.” Team Spain will face Serbia on Wednesday in absence of Novak Djokovic, followed by a match against Canada on Friday. Ultimately versus South Korea on Sunday. Davis Cup Finals will be played against the top team of both groups, A and B in Malaga, Spain.
Alcaraz had an extremely last week in US Open 2022 as he had tough and tight matches for his last three matches. He fought versus Jannik Sinner in the quarter-final resulting in a five-setter match of almost five hours. Therefore, it seems a little too tiring for the US Open champion to cope up as early as possible for team Spain.
“The way he[Alcaraz] won three matches in five sets is an incredible effort mentally as well as physically. Being the youngest No. 1in the world, there aren’t any words.”
Have a nice day ahead!
