With better feelings every day, Carlos Alcaraz faces today (about 4:00 p.m.) for the fourth time against Alexander Zverev, whom he beat a few weeks ago in the final of the Mutua Madrid Open. The face to face follow in favor of german 25 years old and number three in the world (2-1), but that day the Murcian of 19 and 6th was much superior. At stake is now a place in the semifinals Roland Garros to face Novak Djokovic or Rafa Nadal.
“I’m going to try to go out like in Madrid, Take advantage of the opportunities you have try to give him a lot of pressure from the beginning. but i know it goes to be very hard and very tight”, says Carlitos, who believes that he will meet a different version of his rival. “I’m going to wait for the best Zverev I can think of and from there we’ll see how the match goes.” The Hamburger was very sure that he was going to face Alcaraz, before the Spanish beat the Russian Khachanov, but he was wrong about one thing.
“I’m pretty sure I’m going to play at night against him. I’m preparing for that, although my serve and forehand will be slower.”. But they will be measured during the day, in conditions similar to those of Madrid, except for the height, since the French capital is almost at sea level (42 meters) and the Spanish one at more than 600. Alcaraz has his best result very close in a major and goes for him.
