Alcaraz, his favorite song and what he likes most about Argentina: “I tried it last year and…”


This Monday the Argentina Open begins in Buenos Aires, a tournament where Carlos Alcaraz is the top favorite and great attraction. The Murcian, first seeded, is exempt from playing in the first round and will not debut until Wednesday or Thursday, when the round of 16 is played, so he is taking advantage of the first days of this week to interact with the courts of the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club and attend local media.

In one of those interviews, given to the ‘Infobae’ portal, the Wimbledon champion spoke of his love for Argentina and the Argentinian people. “They are wonderful, the truth is that I have many friends in Argentina and they are incredible people. Last year there was no better way to end the week, so I wanted to come along, to try to repeat that amazing week, where I enjoyed every day and every second that I was here. A week enjoyed like that must be repeated” he retorted, although something didn’t quite convince him.

I tried the mate last year and… (laughs) Let’s just say I have to try again (laughs)” he answered if he liked the iconic Argentine drink.

Alcaraz had no doubts in choosing his favorite dish in the country, “the typical barbecue!” and also chose his favorite song. “I don’t know what to say, but wait, I would say “Neverita”, by Bad Bunny. It’s a good “mood”, without going overboard., but good vibe, calm. So I would say that one,” he explained.

Regarding his goal to regain the number 1 in the ATP, the Murcian stressed that “It’s a battle. It’s a battle and it’s a goal to get back to number one, obviously. Now there are many players fighting for that position and, also, for winning the Grand Slam. It was a very even battle. “There are Djokovic and Sinner who, for me, right now, are at the top and the players to beat right now.”

But there is also (Andrey) Rublev, there is (Alexander) Zverev, there is Holger (Rune), everyone is trained to give their best level., for that above, let’s see. But it is true that, for now, between Sinner, Medvedev and I have an equal battle for No. 1,” he added.
