Top seed in Paris
1 – Alcaraz heads into a Grand Slam as the top seed for the very first time, however, he won't be distracted by the number next to his name in the draw.
Although the 20-year-old wanted even more clay-court success in Rome, he welcomed the extended time to recharge ahead of Roland-Garros.
"I'm going to rest little bit, some days off for me. I really need some days to reset my mind a little bit, to be fresh for Roland-Garros," stated the Spaniard in Rome.
"I've been playing so much. It's going to be really helpful for me to have days at home practising and getting ready.
"It's great to be the No.1 seed in a Grand Slam, in Paris. That's a tournament I really want to have a good result there. I try not to think about it. For me it's the same to be No.1, No.2, No.3. It's great, but at the same time it's not really helpful for me."
