Carlos Alcaraz has elevated himself into the elite of all-surface Grand Slam players after his victory at Roland Garros and is set to arrive at Wimbledon aiming to solidify his status in the top tier by defending a major title for the first time. The 21-year-old managed to secure his first French Open title despite a forearm issue, joining legends like Rafa Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Andre Agassi who have won majors on clay, hard, and grass courts. Alcaraz's win in Paris marked his third Grand Slam trophy, following his initial breakthrough at the 2022 US Open and a memorable Wimbledon win a year prior. His adaptation to grass was particularly notable, winning consecutive titles after entering the 2023 British grasscourt season with limited experience on the surface. 'I have more matches on grass now, and after my successful run last year at Queen's Club and Wimbledon, I understand how to play on this surface,' Alcaraz commented, having defeated Djokovic in a five-set Wimbledon final. 'I'm more mature on this surface. My initial practice here wasn't as good as last year, but it's a gradual process. I need to be focused in every practice and match.' Known for his powerful forehand and dynamic style that can overpower top players, Alcaraz remains a favorite at the All England Club, despite his early exit at the Queen's Club last week. Without his coach Juan Carlos Ferrero, Alcaraz was defeated by local hero Jack Draper in straight sets in the round of 16 but is determined to bounce back at Wimbledon. 'It's challenging to cope with losses, but they are part of our journey,' Alcaraz reflected, holding a 17-3 record on grass. 'After losses, you must focus on the positives and negatives to improve for the next event. I'm eager to get better. I'm excited to begin Wimbledon. I want to win every title, and Wimbledon holds a special place. I'm ready and excited for the first match on Centre Court.'
