World No. 1 Carlos out of first Grand Slam of the year: Leg injury, won't play in Australian Open
World number one tennis player Carlos Alcaraz is out of the Australian Open. Alcaraz, 19, is the youngest tennis player to reach the world no. The first Grand Slam Australia Open of the year is to be played from January 16 to January 29. "During off-season training, I injured a muscle in my right leg," Alcaraz said on Friday. I had prepared for the Australia Open. I missed the ATP finals first and then the Davis Cup because of an abdominal injury. I wanted to come back in the new year from the Australia Open. I was doing better in training. Unfortunately, I have injured my leg, due to which I have to miss the first event of the year.
Carlos Alcaraz beat Casper Ruud in four sets in the men's singles final of the US Open last year to win his first Grand Slam title at the age of 19 and become the youngest player to top the ATP rankings. From 2004 to 2021, one of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic or Andy Murray used be ATP No. 1 at the end of the year. But Alcaraz changed this practice after 18 years and he became number one.
Became the first player to beat Nadal and Djokovic in the same clay-court event
The 19-year-old Alcaraz last year became the first player to beat Nadal and Djokovic on the same clay court. He defeated Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of the Madrid Open. While Rafael Nadal was defeated in the quarterfinals.
