As a testament to his meteoric rise in the world of tennis, Spanish sensation Carlos Alcaraz will soon be immortalized with a mural at his childhood school.

The Ciudad de La Paz primary school in El Palmar, Spain, has commissioned a massive artwork to pay homage to the World No. 2 tennis star, capturing the essence of young "Carlitos" as he once roamed the school's halls.

The idea for the mural took root after Alcaraz paid a visit to his former school last year, following his remarkable performance at Roland-Garros. The tennis prodigy's affection for his hometown and alma mater was evident during the visit, as he took time to reconnect with his former teachers and reminisce about his early days.

The mural's creation is not only a nod to Alcaraz's recent success, but also a symbol of inspiration for the students who now walk the same halls that once nurtured the dreams of a young tennis prodigy.

Carlos Alcaraz, who has emerged as one of the most promising young talents on the ATP circuit, has been making waves with his scintillating performances. The mural serves as a reminder of his journey thus far and a celebration of his achievements, which have earned him recognition and accolades from around the world.

Up next at the 2023 Indian Wells, where the Spaniard competes, he will take on Jannik Sinner, who he had very good battles with in the past. Previewing their meeting, he said:

"Can't wait to play Jannik tomorrow! No matter who won, I think our previous matches have been great fun for the fans, and also for us."
