on 2023 Carlos Alcaraz It has started out full of bumps in the form of injuries, but in regards to his sports performance, the Murcian tennis player continues to be around the A in every tournament he plays. There have been three competitions – due to two casualties due to injury – in which Alcaraz has been in contention and for the moment the full finals are complete. At present, the Indian Wells Masters 1000, Carlitos is not only displaying his best game but he will duel against Daniel Medvedevwith the double prize of the title in California and the number one in the world on the horizon.
Yeah alcaraz get win in Indian Wellswill return to the top of the ATP ranking weeks after he had to say goodbye to such precious booty, due to an injury that prevented him from competing in the australian open, the first Grand Slam of the season. Now with Djokovic Banned from the two spring Masters 1000 that are held in the United States, Carlitos had the opportunity to climb back to number one. For this, he was only worth the title… and he is one game away from achieving it.
To return to USA has brought back great memories alcarazwho is living his third American dream, which could come true if he wins the Indian Wells Masters 1000 to Daniel Medvedev. Last year, around this time, Carlos reached the semifinals of the Californian tournament, where he was knocked out by a great Rafael Nadal, and immediately afterwards he won the first Masters 1000 of his career in the Miami Opendefeating Casper Ruud in the final and beginning a streak that would continue with other renowned titles in the Conde de Godó Trophy and the Mutua Madrid Open.
However, the great title won to date by alcaraz was the US Open 2022also on North American soil and also defeating Ruud in a historic final, in which Carlos rose to number one in the ranking ATP at just 19 years old, becoming the youngest in history to do so.
the end of Indian Wells 2023 can suppose for alcaraz the culmination of a third American dream that would bring him a great title for his showcases and what seems most important, the return to the top of the ATP ranking, when everyone expected that Novak Djokovic raise his quota of weeks in front, at number one in history, without anyone coughing on him for a long time.
Medvedev, in the role of villain
The rival of alcaraz on the bottom step before grabbing the trophy that accredits the champion of the Indian Wells Masters 1000 is none other than Daniel Medvedevwho arrives on a roll after winning 19 consecutive games, but who has experienced several episodes on the Californian courts that cast doubt on his favoritism to the point of putting him at the same point as alcaraz. Protestant with the not so fast courts of the Californian complex, Daniil needed up to seven match points to beat Frances Tiafoe in semifinals. Now, in the first duel with both as stars –Medvedev crushed Carlitos at Wimbledon 2021–, it will really be seen if Daniil confirms his definitive return to the fight for the big tournaments or if it is Carlos Alcaraz the one who takes the cat into the water and returns to number one in the world.
