Carlos Alcaraz Confirms Participation To Defend His Title At Queen's Club

Carlos Alcaraz Confirms Participation To Defend His Title At Queen's Club

by Zachary Wimer

Carlos Alcaraz had a surprising run at last year's Queen's Club Championship, and he's going to come back in 2024.

Alcaraz arrived in London last year without any high expectations regarding his grass tennis aspirations. He started to play on grass only recently, and he also started playing well on the green surface quickly, changing his mind by the time he hoisted the Queen's Club trophy.

It was his maiden trophy on grass, but he had no idea that he would host an even bigger one not long after that. He went to Wimbledon, played well, and won his second Grand Slam title at the event by beating Novak Djokovic in the final.

It was an amazing sequence of Alcaraz in London, and he'll try to do it again this year. The Spaniard has already signed up for the Cinch Championships, hoping to defend the trophy he won last year.

The announcement came from the event, and it's accompanied by a statement from Alcaraz, who is excited to come back to the ATP 500 event once more.

"I’m excited to be heading back to the LTA’s cinch Championships this year. Winning the title in 2023 was very special for me and the perfect preparation for Wimbledon. I really enjoyed playing on the British grass courts and look forward to competing again this summer."

This setup worked out really well for him last year, so there is no reason for him to change it. Why not do the same routine again and see what happens this year? It doesn't mean that he'll actually win the trophy again, let alone Wimbledon again, but it's a nice sequence of tournaments in the United Kingdom.

He can get used to the conditions in London and it's a really good preparation for the major later on.
