The Alcaraz surname is becoming a household in men's tennis, and it looks like it will be preserved for many years to come.
At the age of 20 Carlos Alcaraz has already left an indelible mark on the ATP Tour accomplishing what over half of the roster can only dream and wonder. The Spanish sensation has already won two Grand Slams and has been to World No. 1.
Carlos Alcaraz isn't the only one from his lineage who is destined for greatness. His younger brother Jaime, who is 12, is sprouting to prominence as the next Spanish wunderkind. Like Carlos, Jaime Alcaraz is also a native of Murcia.
Jaime Alcaraz has been playing tennis domestically and has big dreams of emulating his older brother who has been an instant hit on the ATP stage. Last week, the 12-year-old was a runner-up at the Rafa Nadal Tour, a charity tennis event that was conceptualized by former World No. 1 Rafael Nadal.
It is held annually for both boys and girls in the under-12, under-14, and under-16 categories. The purpose of these tournaments is to benefit the Rafa Nadal Foundation, with the sole objective of instilling the aspiring young players the core values of sport.
Jaime lost handily in the final to Russia's Stefan Shangichev 6-0, 6-1. But he was pleased with his performance during the week and in his first tournament of the same tour which he won over three months ago, something Carlos Alcaraz also managed during his teenage years.
At the end of the tournament, Jaime shared on his official Instagram handle a photo dump with all participants at the event which was held in Mallorca at the Rafa Nadal Academy, holding their prizes from the tournament.
