Eliminated during the semi-finals of the US Open by Daniil Medvedev, Carlos Alcaraz experienced a return to earth. The Spaniard, who lost his place as world number one to Novak Djokovic, also decided to take a little break by canceling his presence in the Davis Cup this week, where he could have found the Serbian. Worse still: he made a quick trip to the infirmary, even if it was a simple precaution. In any case, his absence is causing a lot of talk in Spain.

Showing a strong attachment to team competitions, Carlos Alcaraz will not honor its commitment Davis Cup this week. The Spaniard, who decided to play the competition last year just a few days after his title at theUS Openplays the wisdom card and this does not please everyone since his package sparked reactions in Spain.

Little physical worry

It’s normal that people have questions and it’s normal that Carlos wants to take a break, I understand both sides.” said David Ferrer for his part, the captain. Result: Spain is up against the wall after its 3/0 defeat against the Czech Republic in the first match.

This year, the Asian tour is fully back on the calendar ATP. Indeed, last year, only a few tournaments took place in Asia (Tokyo…) and in a few weeks, the Masters 1000 in Shanghai will resurface. For Carlos Alcarazit will therefore be a great first since the last time the players went to China was in 2019.
