Alcaraz explains that he injured himself with an “unnatural movement” during a training. He sustained a muscle injury in his right leg. “I have worked so hard to reach my best level for Australia but unfortunately I will not be able to play in Kooyong and the Australian Open. It’s tough but I have to be optimistic, recover and look ahead,” says Alcaraz.

The 19-year-old Alcaraz has already been on the main draw of the “happy slam” twice. On his debut in 2021 he made it to the second round, last year he went out in the third round. At the end of 2022, the Spanish teenager won his first grand slam with the US Open and then reached first place in the ATP ranking as the youngest player ever.
