Carlos Alcaraz 10 Fast Facts, Bio, Wiki
Carlos Alcaraz Garfia is a Spanish professional tennis player. He is currently ranked as the world No. 1 singles player by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).
Alcaraz has won six ATP Tour singles titles, including the 2022 US Open and two Masters 1000 titles.
With the US Open win, Alcaraz became the youngest ever men’s world No. 1 at 19 years, 4 months and 6 days old, and the first teenager in the Open Era to top the men’s rankings.
As a junior, Alcaraz was ranked as high as world No. 22 and won two titles on the ITF Junior Circuit.
After turning professional in 2018, he won three titles on the ITF Men’s World Tennis Tour and four on the ATP Challenger Tour and broke into the top 100 in rankings in May 2021.
Two months later, Alcaraz reached his first ATP Tour final at the 2021 Croatia Open, an ATP 250 tournament, where he won his first title.
He later entered the top 50 after reaching the quarterfinals at the following US Open and won the year-end 2021 Next Generation ATP Finals in Milan.
After winning his first ATP 500 title at the Rio Open in February 2022, Alcaraz won his first ATP Tour Masters 1000 title at the Miami Open and his second ATP 500 title at the Barcelona Open in April, propelling him into the top 10.
In 2022, Alcaraz (at the age of 19 years and 214 days) became the youngest and first teenager to achieve year-end world No. 1 in the history of ATP Tour.
Carlos Alcaraz Garfia was born on May 5, 2003, in El Palmar, Murcia, Spain to parents Carlos Alcaraz González and Virginia Garfia Escandón. He has three siblings.
He started playing tennis at the Real Sociedad Club de Campo de Murcia where his father was the tennis academy director. In 2018, he began playing at Juan Carlos Ferrero’s Equelite JC Ferrero Sport Academy.
Alcaraz is an all-court, all-round tennis player, but primarily employs an aggressive baseline style of play, with an emphasis on a high winner count from his forehand, typically his most reliable and potent shot.
He can either hit his forehand flat and fast for winners from every court position, or add a great amount of topspin and margin over the net.
He also possesses a well-rounded and more flat and lower net-clearance backhand groundstroke that he is able to redirect down the line for clean winners.
His greatly-disguised drop shot is key to his game, as he often combines the heaviness of his groundstrokes that pushes his opponents back into the court into a defensive position, with a drop shot that is often too well-placed and disguised to deal with.
He has an impressive net-game with great drop volleys and drive volleys, and frequently serve-and-volleys on crucial points.
His first serve is hit at high speeds with little emphasis on service box placement, typically at around 210 kph (130 mph). This has led to some criticism of his serving.
However, he has an excellent and reliable second serve to which he can add topspin, in order to get a high bounce off the court and either push back or get a weak return from closer-returning opponents. This serve typically reaches 150 to 170 kph (93 to 106 mph).
Alcaraz has earned acclaim for his remarkable athletic and physical traits.
In particular, his direct sprints, counterattacking abilities from often indefensible positions on court, and an extremely high peak footspeed which has earned him comparisons to a young Rafael Nadal and Gaël Monfils.
He has earned comparisons to Novak Djokovic for his assured lateral movement and court-coverage aided by physical splits and sliding through the court on defense, particularly on his backhand side where he is often able to neutralize his opponent’s groundstroke aggression or drop shot attempts.
He has also earned comparisons, on occasion, to Roger Federer for his great footwork and ability to go inside-out on his forehand and control the court with his offense.
Carlos (Carlito) was born the 5 May 2003 in El Palmar, Murcia (Spain) to Carlos Alcaraz Gonzalez and Virginia Garfia and he has 3 siblings: Alvaro (the eldest), Sergio, and Jaime (both younger than him).
Carlos started to play tennis when he was just 4 and he was inspired to get on with the sport by his father, who used to be a top40 player in Spain.
Carlos is 1.85 tall (6ft 1) and he is coached by former world no.1 Juan Carlos Ferrero. Carlos turned pro when he was just 15 when he started playing futures and challengers.
Alcaraz has an interesting record since he is one of the few players in tennis history to have never lost in the 1st round of any slam in his debut.
In 2021, he lost in the second round in both the Australian Open and Wimbledon and in the 3rd round of the French Open.
His coach Juan Carlos Ferrero likens Carlos to Roger Federer in terms of aggressiveness:
“It is difficult to compare to Roger Federer, of course, but if I had to say one name, I’m looking for somebody that is very aggressive and is able to do a lot of things on the court, and Roger is the best in these situations.
He can play on any surface and can play any type of style,” said the Spaniard.
Obviously, a big difference with Roger Federer is that Carlos Alcaraz Garfia has a double-handed backhand.
He has been dating fellow tennis player, Maria González Giménez for quite some time.
Carlos Alcaraz is a 19-year-old tennis player from Spain, who became the new world No 1 on September 12, 2022.
