After the fantastic US Open that he played, where he had to leave in the quarterfinals against Felix Auger-Aliassime (15th), It was confirmed that Carlos Alcaraz (55th) suffered a fibrillar tear in the quadriceps of his left leg. In this way, the Spanish got off the ATP 250 of Metz, which will start on September 19.
The Murcian suffered the injury after the triumph of the third round against Stefanos Tsitsipas (3rd) and later also suffered a puncture in front of Auger-Aliassime, which was detected as an elongation in the adductor of the right leg.
“He got off Metz, but I’m optimistic about Indian Wells. Now it is about resting, but you will have an active rest combined with physical therapy“, Told him Juan Jose Lopez, doctor who tested the tennis player, Mark.
The Indian Wells Masters 1000 will begin on October 7 and the young man from Spain dreams of returning, after the great US Open he did, in this contest.
After his big tournament in Flushing Meadows, Alcaraz will be, as of this Monday, number 38 in the world, which leaves him very close to being seeded in the next Grand Slam tournaments (the first 32).
