Carlos Alcaraz Garfia (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈkarlos alkaˈɾaθ];[4] born 5 May 2003) is a Spanish professional tennis player. He has been ranked as high as world No. 1 in men's singles by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), and is the current world No. 2. Alcaraz has won fourteen ATP Tour-level singles titles, including three major titles (at the 2022 US Open, 2023 Wimbledon Championships, and 2024 French Open) and five Masters 1000 titles. Following his win at the 2022 US Open, Alcaraz became the youngest man and the first male teenager in the Open Era to top the singles rankings, at 19 years, 4 months, and 6 days old.[5][6][7]

Alcaraz began his career as a professional tennis player in 2018. At the age of 15, he won three titles on the ITF Men's World Tennis Tour and four on the ATP Challenger Tour. He broke into the top 100 in rankings in May 2021, and ended that year in the top 35 after reaching his first major quarterfinal at the US Open. In March 2022, Alcaraz won his first Masters 1000 title at the Miami Open at the age of 18, and then won his second at the Madrid Open where he defeated Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Alexander Zverev in succession. In late 2022, Alcaraz won his first major singles title at the US Open. Finishing the year as the youngest year-end No. 1 in ATP ranking history, he was later named the Laureus World Breakthrough of the Year for his performance in the 2022 season. In 2023, Alcaraz claimed two additional Masters 1000 titles at Indian Wells and Madrid, and earned his second major title at Wimbledon, defeating Djokovic to become the first champion outside of the Big Four since Lleyton Hewitt in 2002. In 2024, he won his third major title at the French Open, becoming the youngest man in history to complete the career Surface Slam.[8][9]

Early life

Carlos Alcaraz was born on 5 May 2003, in El Palmar, Murcia, Spain, to parents Carlos Alcaraz González and Virginia Garfia Escandón. He has three siblings.

Alcaraz started playing tennis at the age of four at the Real Sociedad Club de Campo de Murcia (Royal Murcia Country Club), where his father was the tennis academy director, and his grandfather one of the club's founders. Alcaraz's father had been a ranked player in Spain, but ultimately was not able to make a career out of playing tennis. In 2018, Alcaraz moved to Villena to begin training at Juan Carlos Ferrero's Equelite JC Ferrero Sport Academy.[10][11]

Professional career

2020: ATP debut

In February 2020, at the age of 16, Alcaraz made his ATP main-draw debut at the Rio Open after receiving a wildcard for the singles main draw. There, he defeated Albert Ramos Viñolas.[12] Alcaraz was defeated in the second round by Federico Coria.

Alcaraz became the youngest match winner in the Madrid Open's history, defeating Adrian Mannarino as a wildcard and breaking then-18-year-old Rafael Nadal's record from 2004. In the second round, he lost to five-time champion Nadal on Alcaraz's 18th birthday.[15][16][17] By winning the biggest title of his career until then at the 2021 Open de Oeiras III Challenger tournament, he entered the top 100 as the youngest player at the age of 18 on 24 May 2021.[18][19]

At the French Open, Alcaraz reached the third round of a major for the first time in his career by defeating Nikoloz Basilashvili.

In July 2021, he reached his first ATP final at the 2021 Croatia Open Umag, defeating top seed Albert Ramos Viñolas.[20] He then won his maiden ATP title by defeating Richard Gasquet and becoming the youngest tour-level champion since 18-year-old Kei Nishikori won the Delray Beach Open in 2008. Alcaraz was the youngest Spaniard to win an ATP Tour title since Nadal claimed his first trophy in Sopot in 2004.[21]

At Wimbledon, he lost in the second round to Daniil Medvedev. At the Winston-Salem Open, Alcaraz reached the round of 16 defeating qualifier Alexei Popyrin, and his second tour-level quarterfinal of the season defeating fourth seed Márton Fucsovics.[22] He defeated Marcos Giron to reach the semifinals,[23] where he lost to Mikael Ymer.

At the US Open, Alcaraz defeated world No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas in a fifth-set tiebreak to reach the fourth round in the biggest win of his career.[24] At 18 years of age, Alcaraz became the youngest man in a major fourth round since 17-year-old Andrei Medvedev at the 1992 French Open, and the youngest man in the US Open fourth round since 17-year-old Michael Chang and 18-year-old Pete Sampras in 1989.[25][26] He then reached the quarterfinals by defeating qualifier Peter Gojowczyk. Alcaraz became the youngest US Open men's quarterfinalist in the Open Era, the youngest at the tournament since 18-year-old Thomaz Koch in 1963, and the youngest Grand Slam tournament men's singles quarterfinalist since 18-year-old Michael Chang at the 1990 French Open. He then lost to Félix Auger-Aliassime via retirement in the second set in the quarterfinals after injuring his leg.[27]

At the Erste Bank Open, Alcaraz defeated world No. 7 Matteo Berrettini, his second win over a top-10 player,[28] and became the youngest player in the top 35 on 1 November. During his Paris Masters run, Alcaraz defeated French wildcard Pierre-Hugues Herbert in three thrilling sets in the first round.[29] He then defeated Jannik Sinner in straight sets in the second round, his third win over a top-10 player.[30] In the third round, he was defeated by Hugo Gaston in straight sets.[31]

At the Next Gen ATP Finals, Alcaraz defeated Brandon Nakashima, Juan Manuel Cerúndolo, and Holger Rune in the round-robin stage. He beat Sebastian Baez in the semifinal, and Sebastian Korda in the final.[32][33][34][35]

Seeded for the first time in a major at No. 31, Alcaraz reached the third round of the Australian Open before losing in five sets to Matteo Berrettini.[36]

In Indian Wells, Alcaraz reached his first Masters 1000 quarterfinal and semifinal, defeating defending champion Cameron Norrie before losing to Rafael Nadal.

Seeded 14th at the Miami Open, Alcaraz defeated 6th seed Casper Ruud to win his first Masters 1000 title, the youngest men's champion in the tournament's history and the third-youngest ATP Masters 1000 titlist in history.[38]

Alcaraz at the 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters

At the Monte-Carlo Masters, Alcaraz lost in the second round to Sebastian Korda.[39] At the Barcelona Open, Alcaraz defeated top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals[40] to enter the top 10 in rankings for the first time on 25 April 2022.[41][42] He became the 20th teen to break into top 10 overall since rankings were established in 1973, and the youngest since Rafael Nadal also on 25 April 2005.[43][44] Alcaraz would make his top-10 debut exactly 17 years after Nadal made his top-10 debut, which is also their difference in ages, meaning they both made their top-10 debuts shortly before they each turned 19 years of age. Alcaraz later defeated Pablo Carreño Busta to win the title.[45]

A day after his 19th birthday at the Madrid Open, he defeated 5-time Madrid champion, world No. 4 and third seed Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals to become the first teenager to defeat him on clay.[46] The following day, he beat the world No. 1 and top seed Novak Djokovic in the semifinals for his 6th straight top-10 win, and became the youngest player to win a match against a world No. 1 since 2004. He also became the first player to ever beat Djokovic and Nadal back-to-back on clay.[38][47][48] In the final, he won his fourth title for the season (and second Masters 1000), by defeating defending champion and world No. 3 Alexander Zverev, thereby defeating the top three seeds in three consecutive matches. He also became the youngest champion in tournament history.[49] As a result, he climbed to a career-high of world No. 6 in the rankings on 9 May 2022.[50]

Alcaraz at the 2022 Wimbledon Championships

Following his withdrawal from the Italian Open due to an ankle injury,[51] Alcaraz made his seeded debut at the French Open as No. 6. Having won two of the tour's biggest titles on clay coming into the Slam, he was widely projected to be one of the favorites for the title.[52] He defeated Juan Ignacio Londero in straight sets before saving a match point in a second round five-setter against Albert Ramos Viñolas.[53][54] He then defeated Korda and Karen Khachanov in straight sets before losing to Zverev, in the second major quarterfinal of his career.[55][56][57]

At Wimbledon, Alcaraz beat Jan-Lennard Struff in a close five set match before defeating Tallon Griekspoor and Oscar Otte in straight sets, reaching the round of 16 for the first time at this major. He lost to Jannik Sinner in the fourth round.

At the Hamburg Open, he reached the final, resulting in a new career-high of world No. 5 on 25 July 2022. Alcaraz became the youngest player to enter the top 5 in rankings since Nadal in 2005.[58][59] He was defeated in the final by Lorenzo Musetti, resulting in the first loss in a tournament final of his career.[60] At the Croatia Open, he reached his second consecutive final, resulting in another ranking jump to world No. 4 on 1 August.[61][62]

Alcaraz entered the 2022 US Open as the No. 3 seed.[63] He defeated Sebastian Baez, Federico Coria and Jenson Brooksby without dropping a set to reach the fourth round.[64] Next he defeated 15th seed Marin Čilić in five sets, becoming the youngest man to reach back-to-back quarterfinals at this Major in the Open Era.[65] In his quarterfinal match he defeated Jannik Sinner, saving a match point in the fourth set. The match set the record as the latest finish (at 2:50AM EST) and second longest match (5 hours and 15 minutes) in US Open history.[66][67] He defeated Frances Tiafoe in the semifinals for his third consecutive five-set match victory.[68] He defeated 5th seed Casper Ruud in the final, where both players were in contention for the world No. 1 ranking, to win the title. Alcaraz became the youngest No. 1 in the history of the ATP Rankings at the age of 19 years, 4 months and 6 days, breaking Lleyton Hewitt's record.[5] He also became the first teenager in the Open Era to top the men's rankings and the youngest men's US Open champion since Pete Sampras in 1990.[69]

In his first match as world No. 1, Alcaraz lost his singles match at the 2022 Davis Cup Finals to Félix Auger-Aliassime.[70] Next, he lost to David Goffin at the Astana Open in his opening round. Alcaraz reached the semifinals in Basel, where he was defeated by the eventual champion Auger-Aliassime for a second time in the season.[71] At the Paris Masters, Alcaraz reached the quarterfinals after defeating Yoshihito Nishioka and Grigor Dimitrov, but retired while being a set down against Holger Rune.[72] A day later, Alcaraz announced he had suffered an abdominal tear requiring a six-week layoff, forcing him to end his season early. Alcaraz withdrew from the ATP Finals and the Davis Cup Finals.[73] Alcaraz, at the age of 19 years and 214 days, ended the year as youngest and first teenager world No. 1.[7]

2023: 100th career win and Wimbledon champion

Alcaraz at the 2023 French Open

On 7 January, Alcaraz announced his withdrawal from the Australian Open due to a hamstring injury he suffered in his right leg while training.[74] Following the tournament, he lost the world No. 1 ranking to the champion Novak Djokovic.[75] He held the ranking for a total of 20 weeks.

In his first tournament for the 2023 season at the Golden Swing in South America, Alcaraz won his seventh title at the Argentina Open, defeating second seed Cameron Norrie.[76] Defending his title at the Rio Open, he reached back to back finals where he played against Norrie again, but lost in three sets.[77] Alcaraz was additionally scheduled to play in Acapulco in the month of February, but withdrew prior to the tournament after suffering another hamstring injury.[78]

At the Indian Wells Open he recorded his 100th career win, defeating 31st seed Tallon Griekspoor to reach the fourth round, making him the second fastest player to reach this milestone after John McEnroe, and faster than the Big 3.[79][38] After reaching the semifinals, Alcaraz defeated eleventh seed Jannik Sinner in straight sets in an anticipated match.[80][81] Defeating fifth seed Daniil Medvedev in the final, he won his eighth career title and third Masters 1000 title, breaking Medvedev's 19-match winning streak, and becoming the first player to win the tournament without dropping a set since Roger Federer in 2017. He additionally became the ninth and youngest man to win both legs of the Sunshine Double. As a result, he returned to world No. 1 on 20 March 2023.[82] In Miami where Alcaraz was the defending champion, he reached the semifinals having not dropped a set defeating Facundo Bagnis, Dušan Lajović, 16th seed Tommy Paul and ninth seed Taylor Fritz. This time he lost to Jannik Sinner in three sets.[83] He dropped to No. 2 in the rankings having not been able to defend his previous year title points.[84]

Alcaraz was scheduled to play at the Monte-Carlo Masters the following week, but withdrew due to post-traumatic arthritis in his left hand and muscular discomfort in his spine.[85] He began the European clay court swing at the Barcelona Open; defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final, he successfully defended his title without dropping a set.[86] He won his tenth career title at the Madrid Open again as the defending champion, defeating lucky loser Jan-Lennard Struff.[87] At the next clay court tournament, the Rome Masters, Alcaraz earned the opportunity to clinch the No. 1 ranking from Novak Djokovic just by playing his second round match. However, he would be upset in the third round by the world No. 135 Fabian Marozsan in straight sets, in what Jon Wertheim labelled the biggest upset of the year.[88][89]

At the 2023 French Open, Alcaraz advanced to the semifinals. In a highly anticipated match, he was defeated by Novak Djokovic in four sets, after suffering cramps at the onset of the third. Alcaraz and Djokovic had not played against each other in over a year, despite alternating between the world No. 1 ranking throughout 2023; Alcaraz would later claim the nerves of the occasion had partially led to his cramping. Djokovic regained the No. 1 ranking from Alcaraz, after he ultimately went on to win the tournament.[90][91]

Alcaraz holding the Gentlemen's Singles Challenge Cup after winning the 2023 Wimbledon Championships

At the Queen's Club Championships, he recorded his first title on grass in only his third career grass court tournament, beating Alex de Minaur in the final. The tournament win in London also returned him to the world No. 1 in rankings.[92] At the 2023 Wimbledon Championships, as the top seed, he reached the final following wins over Jérémy Chardy, Alexandre Müller, Nicolas Jarry, Matteo Berrettini, Holger Rune, and Daniil Medvedev. In a monumental match, Alcaraz defeated Novak Djokovic in five sets, ending Djokovic's run to win a fifth consecutive title, and securing the No. 1 ranking. With this win, Alcaraz became the second player, after Andy Murray, to defeat Djokovic in a Wimbledon final.[93] Additionally, Alcaraz became the first non-"Big 4" player to win Wimbledon since Lleyton Hewitt's victory in 2002.[94]

Losing in the quarterfinals of Toronto to Tommy Paul,[95] Alcaraz would then lose to Djokovic in a rematch of their Wimbledon final, at the Cincinnati final. He lost in three sets, despite having a championship point in the second-set tiebreak. It was the longest ever best-of-three-sets ATP Masters final and the longest match in the tournament's history, at 3 hours and 49 minutes; Djokovic would praise it as "one of the toughest matches of [his] life".[96][97] At the 2023 US Open, where Alcaraz was looking to defend his grand slam title, he reached the semifinals having only dropped one set. However, he lost to 2021 champion Daniil Medvedev in four sets.[98] Alcaraz dropped to No. 2 in the rankings following the tournament, as Novak Djokovic was not defending any points.[99] He additionally withdrew from the Davis Cup Finals, citing tiredness.[100]

Alcaraz entered the year-end indoor hardcourt season with the goal of gaining the year-end No. 1 ranking.[101][102] However, in the Asian swing, he lost to Jannik Sinner in the semifinals of Beijing for a second time in the season, and then to Grigor Dimitrov in the round of 16 at Shanghai.[103][104] He then withdrew from Basel due to injury,[105] and lost in his opening round at the Paris-Bercy Masters to Roman Safiullin.[106] At the ATP Finals in Turin, Alcaraz reached the semifinals after beating Andrey Rublev and Daniil Medvedev, and losing to Alexander Zverev, in the round-robin stage. He would be defeated by eventual champion Novak Djokovic in straight sets, for a third time in the season.[107] Ultimately, Alcaraz ended the season as the year-end world No. 2.[108]

2024: French Open champion and Career Surface Slam

Alcaraz began his 2024 campaign at Australian Open, making his furthest career run at the tournament after reaching the quarterfinals.[109] He lost to the sixth seed Alexander Zverev in four sets.[110]

In February, Alcaraz entered 2024 Argentina Open as the defending champion and won his first two matches in straight sets[111] before losing to Nicolás Jarry at the semifinal.[112] He retired from the Rio Open the following week two games into his opening match due to a right ankle injury, after twisting his ankle.[113] He later announced a lateral sprain of his right ankle but said he'd miss just "a few days" before Indian Wells.[114]

As defending champion in Indian Wells, Alcaraz came back into form defeating Matteo Arnaldi, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Fabian Marozsan, and Alexander Zverev to reach the semifinals, having only dropped one set in his opening match against Arnaldi.[115] He next faced Jannik Sinner for an eighth career meeting,[116] and defeated him to end Sinner's 19-match winning streak, levelling their rivalry to 4–4.[117] Alcaraz successfully defended his title again defeating Daniil Medvedev in the final, earning him his first title since Wimbledon 2023.[118] In Miami, where he aimed to complete the Sunshine Double, Alcaraz reached the quarterfinals defeating Roberto Carballes Baena, Gael Monfils, and Lorenzo Musetti without dropping a set.[119][120] However, he then lost to eventual finalist Grigor Dimitrov for a second consecutive time.[121] Following the tournament, he dropped to world No. 3 after being overtaken by Jannik Sinner.

Prior to Roland-Garros, Alcaraz experienced a shaky clay season. He withdrew from the Monte–Carlo Masters and the Barcelona Open, the latter where he would be defending his title, due to a right forearm injury.[122][123] In Madrid, where he was also defending champion, Alcaraz lost in the quarterfinals to eventual champion Andrey Rublev.[124] He then withdrew from Rome due to the forearm injury.[124]

In June, he reached his second French Open semi-final by defeating J. J. Wolf, Jesper de Jong, Sebastian Korda, Félix Auger-Aliassime, and Stefanos Tsitsipas. In the semi-final, Alcaraz would defeat 2nd seed Jannik Sinner in 5 sets to advance to his first French Open final. His opponent in the final would be 4th seed Alexander Zverev, who took the lead 2 sets to 1. Alcaraz would take the fourth set 6-1 and force a fifth decisive set, which he would win 6-2. At 21, he became the youngest male player in history to win a Grand Slam title on every surface.[125]

Rivalries

Jannik Sinner

Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner have faced each other 9 times, with Alcaraz leading 5–4.[126] Their notable matches include the 2024 French Open semifinal with Alcaraz winning in five sets, the 2022 US Open quarterfinal, which Alcaraz won saving match points (going on to win the title), and the 2023 Miami semifinal, which was won by Sinner.

Novak Djokovic

Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic have faced each other five times, with Djokovic leading 3–2. Both have once won at a Masters and Grand Slam, and Alcaraz lost to Djokovic in the 2023 ATP Finals' semi-final match.[127]

Their first meeting was at the 2022 Madrid Masters semifinals, in which Alcaraz prevailed in a deciding set tiebreaker. Their next meeting would not be until the semifinals of the 2023 French Open, which was highly anticipated and received immense hype from media and the ATP itself.[128][129][130][131] Djokovic won in four sets, with the match competitive until Alcaraz faltered due to cramps from mental pressure and physical intensity.[132] They would meet again soon after in the 2023 Wimbledon final, in which Alcaraz would defeat Djokovic in a five-setter that lasted 4 hours and 42 minutes, ending his hopes for a calendar Grand Slam and his record 45-match Centre Court win streak.[133] They would meet soon again in another epic at the 2023 Cincinnati Masters final, with Djokovic prevailing in three tightly contested sets after saving a match point. The match was the longest best-of-three-sets ATP Tour final and the longest match in the tournament's history, at 3 hours and 49 minutes, and was immediately praised as one of the best matches ever.[134][135] Djokovic won despite being a set down and down a break in the second set, along with saving a championship point in the second-set tiebreaker.[136][137]

Endorsements and philanthropy

Alcaraz is sponsored by Nike for clothing and shoes, and by Babolat for racquets, using the Babolat Pure Aero 98 racquet.[138][139] In January 2022, he became a brand ambassador for Rolex.[140][141] He is also a brand ambassador for dermocosmetics company Isdin, Spanish food company ElPozo, and German automobile manufacturer BMW under their BMW Spain division.[142][143][144] In January 2023, he became ambassador for the American clothing brand Calvin Klein especially for their 1996 underwear campaign.[145] In June 2023, Alcaraz became a brand ambassador for Louis Vuitton.[146]

In April 2024, Alcaraz announced the launch of the Carlos Alcaraz Garfia Foundation, with the aim of improving the lives of disadvantaged children. It is headquartered in El Palmar and operates with local schools.[147][148]

Playing style

Alcaraz is an all-court, all-round tennis player, but primarily employs an aggressive baseline style of play, with an emphasis on a high winner count from his forehand, typically his most reliable and potent shot. He can either hit his forehand flat and fast for winners from every court position, or add a great amount of topspin and margin over the net. He also possesses a well-rounded and more flat and lower net-clearance backhand groundstroke that he is able to redirect down the line for clean winners. His greatly disguised drop shot is key to his game, as he often combines the heaviness of his groundstrokes that pushes his opponents back into the court into a defensive position, with a drop shot that is often too well-placed and disguised to deal with. He has an impressive net-game with great drop volleys and drive volleys, and frequently serves-and-volleys on crucial points.[149]

In 2024, Mats Wilander declared that Alcaraz has the "greatest forehand of all time", while Tim Henman said it was one of the "most devastating shots in the game right now".[150]

Alcaraz has a strong first serve for his mid-sized frame which is commonly around 115 to 120 mph and hit with average placement.[151] Alcaraz has a reliable second serve, to which he can add topspin in order to get a high bounce off the court and either push back or get a weak return from closer-returning opponents. This serve typically reaches 150 to 170 km/h (93 to 106 mph).[152]

Alcaraz has earned acclaim for his athletic and physical traits. In particular, his direct sprints, counterattacking abilities, and an extremely high peak footspeed have garnered him comparisons to a young Rafael Nadal. He has been compared to Novak Djokovic for his assured lateral movement and court-coverage aided by physical splits and sliding through the court on defense, particularly on his backhand side where he is often able to neutralize his opponent's groundstroke aggression or drop shot attempts. Court coverage and exceptional touch have also been crucial in his success.[153][154]

Media

Alcaraz will be the subject of the Netflix show Alcaraz, the Docuseries produced by Morena Films, due to release in 2025.[155] He had previously made appearances in both seasons of Netflix's Break Point docuseries.[156]
