Carlos Alcaraz also exalted by Real Madrid after the feat against Jannik Sinner

Late Friday afternoon, Carlos Alcaraz defeated Jannik Sinner in the semifinals of Roland Garros after an epic battle. Saturday morning Real Madrid also wanted to congratulate the Spanish ace: "Always proud of a great Real Madrid fan like you, dear Carlos Alcaraz. All our strength and support for the grand final at Roland Garros! " wrote the Blancos on social media.

After the feat against Sinner, Alcaraz paid tribute to the South Tyrolean: "The toughest matches I have played so far in my short career were just the ones against Sinner, the one at the US Open in 2022 and the one today above all. He è a great player, he has a great team and I hope to play many more matches like these against him in the future. È it was really a suffering and you have to find joy in suffering, even more so on clay and at Roland Garros: long exchanges, four-hour matches, you have to fight and suffer. I often told my team that you have to like suffering".

"I saw that Jannik was struggling, we both had cramps. I learned the lesson from last year, when against Djokovic I was in a similar situation as today. In these moments è it is crucial to keep calm, because è the cramp sooner or later passes, you have to keep fighting and maybe try to shorten the exchanges. The third set è was very strange, while in the fourth and fifth I managed to raise the level. I am very satisfied with what I did today, I was able to take advantage of my opportunities" concluded Alcaraz.
