Miami (USA) (EFE) to do, play “relaxed”.
“I don’t feel too much pressure, I know what I have to do. I have to play relaxed and not focus on whether I’m losing or playing well. My goal is always the same, to feel comfortable on the track,” Alcaraz said at his first press conference in Miami.
“I want to enjoy tennis and try to think positive when I play. That is why now I am playing at a good level. I enjoy every second and play relaxed,” she added.
Carlos Alcaraz arrives in Miami after winning the fourth Masters 1,000 of his career in Indian Wells, with an exhibition against the Russian Daniil Medvedev that also returned him the first position in the world ranking.
To maintain his leadership in the ranking, Alcaraz, 19, must confirm himself as champion in Miami. If he does not do so, the Serbian Novak Djokovic, absent due to his refusal to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, will recover the scepter.
The Murcian is experiencing a great moment of form and showed magnificent tennis in Indian Wells. However, he stressed that he has room for improvement.
“I always say that I can improve a little in everything. You have to improve, to be better every day. It is what the great players, for example the ‘big 3’ (Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic), did in their careers. Get a little better every day,” he said.
