CARLOS ALCARAZ CAN’T FIND EXPLANATIONS FOR HIS TOUGH ELIMINATION FROM THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN: “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED”

Carlos Alcaraz has played today in Melbourne what has probably been the worst match of his short career in Melbourne. Alexander Zverev swept him off the court in the first two sets and knocked him out of the Australian Open in the quarterfinals.

In the press conference we have not found any explanation from Carlitos to clarify why he played at such a low level the first two sets. Then, when he reacted, it was too late and he was out of the tournament.

“I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what happened. I have to see what happened and talk to my team, because I’m in the heat of the moment and I don’t know what conclusions to draw. They will tell me things as they are. Surely in the future I will improve it, because if I want to win more Grand Slams, this kind of thing I have to improve it, “he said in statements collected by José Morón in Puntodebreak.

The Spaniard acknowledged that he had not felt good on the track and that he had made more mistakes than expected. He wants to talk to his team to find solutions as soon as possible:

“I didn’t have a good feeling from the beginning. I made mistakes that I didn’t make at the beginning of the other matches. The good thing is that we know that this happens to me (the disconnections) and we have to work on it so that it happens less or not at all. If we go back further, it used to happen to me more often, but now it happens less often. I am not worried about it. I know it’s something I will change. I know if it happens to me, I’ll go back and turn it around. You’ll see a change.”

    I think Carlos was too fixated on a final vs. Djokovic. He needs to learn to play in the moment, and not hit such crazy, but entertaining, shots.
