Alcaraz: “I feel I can win Wimbledon”


The Spanish Carlos Alcaraza Wimbledon semifinalist, says he has a “feeling” he can “win the tournament”, although he continues to put Novak Djokovicseven-time champion, as the main candidate.

“Honestly, yes,” said the Murcian when asked if he sees himself as capable of winning Wimbledon. “Everyone knows that the favorite is Djokovic, but I feel I can win the tournament, I have confidence and level”.

Alcaraz defeated the Danish on Wednesday Holger Rune in three sets and will play against the Russian Daniel Medvedev for a place in the final.

“I needed it,” he responded to the shout for winning the first set. “I started getting a little nervous. Until the end of the first set I didn’t know how to control those nerves and emotions, I was fighting internally with myself to try to improve. Until the end of the first set I didn’t succeed. (the scream ) helped me to let go to change the game and above all to have fun, which is the key to everything”.

“That is the difference between very good and great, in moments where there is tension, where one has to bring out the good game, the courage that is inside. We try it in those moments, from 4 -4 , in a ‘tie break’, be brave, be true to our style and do it”.

The Murcian added that the experience of Roland Garros, when he played was reduced Djokovic due to cramps caused by nerves, this will help him for Friday’s game.

“Totally. They are experiences that you have to live and learn from. I learned a lot at Roland Garros, to see what I can improve and now I have the opportunity to improve what I did wrong.”
