Carlos Alcaraz singled out injuries as his biggest concern for the future believing everything else to be good enough to sustain success.

Alcaraz has been dealing with quite a few injuries early on in his career and it's something many have pointed out. The Spaniard noted that as well following his Madrid Open win over Jan Lennard Struff in a conversation that revolved around his vision for the future.

Alcaraz proved time and time again that he can play in big matches and that he can win them. The level is there, and the confidence is there but injuries are one thing that he has yet to figure out because every once and a while he can get injured.

The ability I have to play better in important moments. I think I’m a player who grows in those moments, it’s when I get to the best level and when I do things that are different from the rest of the players. That is what characterizes me and that is why I am a finals player. I have lost very few of the ones I have played. In important moments I give the best level.

Mental fatigue is not a worry for Alcaraz and neither is the travel. He knows how to deal with that as he simply loves to compete and play tennis. As long as he can do that he will be able to handle the accompanying things that could be minor annoyances. Injuries are the only thing that he worries about but it's an easy solution - take care of your body.

The mental issue, getting tired of winning, travelling and playing tennis doesn’t worry me because I know it won’t happen. What may worry me in the future is the issue of injuries, taking care of yourself physically and in the end that is what we are going to try to take care of every day together with my team. We are going to be 100% focused on being physically fit. That’s the only thing that could worry me.
