To be number one on the planet, to be the hero of a Grand Slam,” said Alcaraz.”All the difficult work I did with my group, my loved ones. I’m only 19 years of age so a ton of the choices are with my group, my folks. Something is exceptionally extraordinary for me.”
Alcaraz conceded with a grin that he was “somewhat” drained, however said: “I generally said it’s not opportunity to be worn out in the last round of a Grand Slam. You need to give everything on court, all that you have inside.”
