Carlos Alcaraz (20) would rather win Olympic gold this year than win the Coupe des Mousquetaires at Roland Garros, “if he had to choose”. The world number two made this statement on Monday before the start of his clay court season, which the Spaniard opens this week at the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires.

The winner of the 2022 US Open and 2023 Wimbledon will defend his title in Buenos Aires. “This was an incredible tournament for me and I wanted to come back this year. Physically I feel good. My current level is very good. I played good tennis in Australia and the training days on clay went smoothly.”

He is currently preparing for his next competition. Alcaraz opens in the second round against the winner of the match between the Peruvian Juan Pablo Varillas (ATP 85) and the Argentinian Camilo Ugo Carabelli (ATP 134).

It is not surprising that the number two in the world would now prefer to win Olympic gold instead of winning Roland Garros. The Games is a quadrennial tournament. Roland Garros takes place every year. He previously indicated that he dreams of winning an Olympic medal together with his idol Rafael Nadal in doubles. “It would be a memory that I would cherish with special affection,” Alcaraz said last summer.
