Catching the eye of Ferrero
The rise of ‘Charly’ has been rapid to say the least, ever since bursting onto the pro circuit in February 2018 on home courts in Murcia, Spain.
“I remember he had something different from the others, that was a little special,” Ferrero told RG.com last June. “I saw him in a Futures at 14, he lost that match, but that’s when I thought I could be his coach, I saw things that made me want to be his coach.”
Ferrero, who Alcaraz describes as a “second father,” has since transformed this unique talent from “like a spaghetti, very thin,” into the most explosive player on the planet.
Carlos might be surprised by his Big Apple trophy bite, but Ferrero was just waiting.
“Of course, it comes very fast. It's a surprise for everybody except maybe to me because I trained with him every day and I know what he's able to play on the court,” continued the former world No.1
“I was pretty sure that maybe it wasn't this year, could be next one. Very happy about it, It was fast, but now definitely we want to continue.”
