Carlos Alcaraz starts the new season in the worst possible way. The world no.1 got injured in his right thigh and he will skip the Australian Open. Carlito released the following statement:
“It’s time to deal with another blow… When I was at my best in the preseason, I picked up an injury through a chance, unnatural movement in training. This time it’s the semimembranosus muscle in my right leg. I’d worked so hard to get to my best level for Australia but unfortunately I won’t be able to play the Care A2+ Kooyong or the Australian Open. It’s tough, but I have to be optimistic, recover and look forward. See you in 2024 @australianooen”
Carlito had to cut his 2022 season shorter after he suffered from an abdominal injury. It seems as if he needs to change something in his preparation.
