The whole Alcaraz team, spearheaded by former world No.1 and 2003 Roland-Garros champion Ferrero, has molded an athlete who truly appreciates the bigger picture.
“This match is not going to be tough for me, I'm not going to say I'm disappointed for this match,” explained the Next Gen talisman.
“I could say, I was close to a good match, close to a fifth set, and in the fifth set anything could happen.
"I just gonna try to take the positive things of the match, and of course the bad things that I did, to improve to the next matches.”
The 19-year-old, who has notched up two major quarter-finals, is already a crowd favourite and a key fixture for broadcasters; fans of all ages are adoring the charisma of ‘Charly.’
“I enjoyed a lot, even I lost. Playing in front of such a great crowd, playing in these kind of tournaments, this kind of court, is amazing for me,” added the world No.6, who is an impressive 32-4 win-loss this season.
“I train for these moments. I fight with the best player in the world, fight for a ticket of final of a Grand Slam for me. I couldn't ask for a better crowd in here, in Paris supporting me, until the last ball supporting me.
“That’s why I'm playing tennis, to keep dreaming.”
If Roland-Garros is anything to go by, those dreams will come reality sooner rather than later.
