Alcaraz Declares Intent of Completing the Sunshine Double

Carlos Alcaraz is not indifferent to the chance of winning both Indian Wells and Miami, popularly known as the Sunshine double.

The list of players who achieved that is relatively short with Federer and Djokovic being the only players to do it in this century. He'd like to put his name alongside those because it will look excellent on that Tennis Hall of Fame resume. He's trying to avoid thinking about it too much but admits it's hard because he wants it badly.

Well, I try not to think about that but it's difficult. You know, it's something that I really want it. I want to be a part of that few players that made the Sunshine Double. So for me, it would be great to achieve that.

Alcaraz is looking really strong right now with impressive wins all week long at the Miami Open, an event he already won last year. It's only going to get tougher with a match against Taylor Fritz coming up later today. Another matchup with Medvedev might be on the cards as well which many tennis fans would love to see following a lacklustre Indian Wells final.

But as I said, it is something that I do not think about that, you know, and try to think about day by day, you know, match by match, and that's all I try to think about. But of course, it could be great to be part of that few, few players.

Alcaraz on winning Sunshine double

Miami has been a really good event so far in his career, probably one where he played the best tennis in his career. It's just the overall feel that is excellent for him.

I feel at home here. "It's easy to play here in Miami with all the energy I receive every day. I am enjoying myself and I think that is the key to playing at such a high level every match. I hope to keep going."
