Alcaraz Rejects Being 'Frustrated' By Lack Of Trophies After Historic Wimbledon Win

by Zachary Wimer

Carlos Alcaraz hasn't won a trophy in over six months, but he dismissed suggestions that he's frustrated because of it.

As one of the best players on the ATP Tour, the 20-year-old Spanish prodigy expects himself to win trophies. He's a competitor and wants to be winning trophies, as any other player that he faces.

He hasn't been able to do that recently due to other players stepping up and his play simply not being good enough. It has to be disappointing for him, even though he told Marca recently that he's not frustrated by a lack of trophies.

However, the way he threw his racquet in the loss to Nicolas Jarry which denied him the Buenos Aires final certainly suggests otherwise, or at least, it shows a lot of passion.

According to Alcaraz, his results have been quite solid for the most part, even though he wasn't able to win a trophy.

"The American tour I did after Wimbledon wasn't bad at all. What happens is that people think that if you don't win titles it's bad and it's not like that. I made a few quarterfinals of a Masters 1000, the final in Cincinnati with Djokovic and US Open semifinals. I don't see failure and frustration in what happened after Wimbledon. I have to learn from those experiences and of those moments."

Tehcnically speaking Alcaraz is right. He had several good results, but things have to be looked at from the point of view of a player who wants to be world number one. Going titleless in six months is not the end of the world, but it isn't good either.

Especially when his rival Novak Djokovic has won a Grand Slam and the ATP Finals during the same time. His second rival Jannik Sinner won multiple trophies and a Grand Slam as well.
