Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek both picked up titles over the weekend – and they’re returning to top form with the British summer approaching.
The superb Spaniard successfully defended his Barcelona title, while the brilliant Pole won Stuttgart.
Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek should be in sizzling form for Wimbledon 2023 – and we couldn’t be more delighted.
To see the sensational Alcaraz on Centre Court will be a sight to behold. The boy wonder has everything.
When Stefanos Tsitstipas tried to target the younger man’s backhand in Sunday’s final, Alcaraz simply came up with a devastating array of shots – including one killer lob under pressure.
There was only ever going to be one winner, as Carlos breezed to yet another trophy and closed out 6-3, 6-4.
Tsitsipas can be pleased he reached another final. But he still has to take that last mental step to secure more silverware.
Carlos Alcaraz is simply savouring that winning habit. He said: ‘It’s incredible. To feel this energy and lift the trophy in Barcelona in front of my family and friends. It’s a good feeling for me!’
Now the world number two is 23-2 for the season – and he will be defending champion in Madrid, too.
The nineteen-year-old had already secured Buenos Aires and Indian Wells before Barcelona.
Meanwhile Iga Swiatek will be ecstatic too, after winning another trophy in Stuttgart. She beat Aryna Sabalenka in emphatic style to retain her own title.
Her 6-3, 6-4 victory made her the first woman to claim back-to-back Stuttgart titles since Angelique Kerber in 2015 and 2016.
Iga Swiatek and Carlos Alcaraz will be seeking glory at Wimbledon 2023 as well!
It’s great to see young players smashing it at the very top of our sport.
And they’ll receive a super-warm welcome at Wimbledon 2023, particularly when the Spanish and Polish fans come to cheer them on.
