Carlos Alcaraz is about to play the Mubadala World Tennis Championships. The Spanish sensation ended the year at the top of the rankings. Even if he is very well aware that it is difficult to stay number 1, he hopes to achieve what Iga Swiatek has been doing on the WTA tour.
During a recent interview, Carlito commented:
“I see her year has been incredible, she broke a record I think for the longest winning streak. It’s amazing. I wish to be like her, to not lose the No. 1. But I think it’s almost impossible. I’m going to lose it but the point is to recover it and stay there at No. 1 as much as I can.”
After recovering from an abdominal injury, Alcaraz will return to competitions in Abu Dhabi next week. It will be extremely interesting to see what his fitness is..
Now ranked no.1, Carlos played his last match on the 4th of November when he had to retire when playing against world no.11 Holger Rune in the quarter and the scoreline was 6-3 6-6 .
During this season the Spaniard has a compiled 57-13 match record. Carlos conquered 5 titles in 2022 in Rio de Janeiro, Miami, Barcelona, Madrid and U.S. Open. The Spaniard got to the final in Hamburg and Umag
