Carlos Alcaraz after his victory against Marin Cilic: “It was a spectacular feeling”

(On his victory against Marin Cilic): “I had never played tennis so late, to be honest, and it was a spectacular feeling. The public support was decisive, it gave me the energy I needed to win. It was very hard to lose the fourth set, Marin (Cilic) hadn’t had a single break point and suddenly I found myself with a break at the end. Starting with a break in the fifth set was difficult, but I always believed in my chances. I knew that if I kept pushing and staying positive, I would have my chances. »

(On the possibility of becoming world number 1): “The truth is that I don’t think about it, well, let’s say I try not to think about it. I’m still a long way off, I have to win two or three matches and with an opponent as difficult as Sinner in front of me, that’s all I think about. There are very high level opponents. Jannik is one of them, but the other players show a great level, for example, I think Tiafoe has a great chance considering the tennis he played today. »
