Alcaraz Vows To Come Back To Mexico After Winning Exhibition Match In Front Of 30,000 Fans

Carlos Alcaraz had a really great time in Mexico, and he has already promised to come back after the positive experience.

Exhibitions in Mexico have been a thing for a while, with Rafael Nadal taking on Casper Ruud last year. We also saw Nick Kyrgios play there and many others. Maria Sakkari is a player who played in Mexico at the WTA events and returned again for an exhibition.

This year, Carlos Alcaraz took on Tommy Paul in a fascinating match that the Spanish player won in two sets. It wasn't the only match, of course, because before that match, Caroline Wozniacki took on Maria Sakkai, who is probably one of the most popular tennis players in the country.

When it comes to Alcaraz, he admitted after the match that he's looking forward to coming back to the country.

I’m looking forward to coming back; I’m very surprised by how well they welcomed me. I went to the Basilica, and I can’t wait to come back once again to do a bit more sightseeing.

The match was a very unusual one as both players struggled to control the ball early in the altitude. Mexico City lies at 2200 meters above sea level, but with time, the players improved and delivered a pretty good match for the crowd.

Little by little, we improved and showed a better game. In the end, I think that’s what tennis is about - having fun, enjoying oneself, and making spectacular points. Thank you very much for the invitation and to the people who came to support us from start to finish.

We'll see if Alcaraz comes back to Mexico City, but he'll certainly play in Mexico again. Whether it's one of the two ATP events or whether it's some future exhibition remains to be seen but he'll certainly be back.
