Carlos Alcaraz shuns winning Roland Garros with bigger goal in mind: “It is a dream to win a medal for my country
Carlos Alcaraz’s clay court season will commence tomorrow with his Argentina Open Buenos Aires campaign. Despite not having Roland Garros as his primary objective, he acknowledges
He answered “yes” when asked if he would choose to retain an Olympic gold medal over a Roland Garros crown, describing it as a dream come true that represents sport in general and surpasses tennis.
“I hold onto the Olympic title because it fulfils a dream of mine to represent my nation with a medal. “Gold is among the best things in sports overall,” Alcaraz remarked.
He also acknowledged that, in his opinion, a Grand Slam event, like the US Open or Roland Garros, had the same amount of significance. Although he has disregarded the clay court major, he still wants to win it because it isn’t his top priority when tennis comes to titles and objectives, and he claims it won’t cause him any sleepless nights.
“A Grand Slam is a Grand Slam, regardless of whether it takes place at Roland Garros or somewhere else,” he went on.
Although I am eager to win Roland Garros and hope to advance past the semifinals from the previous year, I don’t feel that I should win it or that I have a grudge against myself for not having done so. It’s worth one in the end, just like every other Grand Slam.
