Alcaraz Admits That Without Queen's Win He 'Wouldn't Be Able To Win Wimbledon'

by Zachary Wimer

Carlos Alcaraz recently admitted that he wouldn't have won Wimbledon if he hadn't won the Cinch Championships in the weeks leading up to it.

The human mind is a strange thing, and it's far more powerful than many people realize. That is why the whole discourse around confidence exists because it matters a lot.

It's particularly important in tennis because players are on their own on the tennis court. It's all about time, and if they don't step up in the moment, they don't have a chance to win.

in Alcaraz's case, winning the Queen's Club ATP 500 event proved vital for winning Wimbledon. He didn't really have much experience or confidence regarding his tennis on grass, and winning Queen's did wonders for him.

We know how the rest went as he became the first player in 10 years to defeat Novak Djokovic at Centre Court. In a talk with the LTA, Alcaraz looked back on that sequence and confirmed that he wouldn't have been able to do it if he didn't win the Queen's Club Championships.

"It was great winning Queen's. My first tournament on grass. It was really a special one. I would say if I didn't win Queen's I would not have been able to win Wimbledon. It was a great run over there and a special win for me."

Alcaraz enjoyed himself so much that he basically signed up for the same tournament this year. He's already confirmed his participation at the Queen's Club Championships this year, hoping to defend his trophy successfully.

If he does, a lot of people will be looking at Wimbledon with curious eyes to see what happens.

"I think my game suits very well on grass. I want to play aggressive all the time. Drop shots, slices so I think that's my style  and that's the way I enjoy the game."
