Carlos Alcaraz answers whether his astonishing success changed him

Carlos Alcaraz, 19, insists his success hasn’t changed as he claims he is still the same person he was before becoming a Grand Slam champion and the top-ranked player in the world.

Alcaraz has had an outstanding, winning a Grand Slam at the US Open and making tennis history by becoming the youngest No 1 in tennis history. 

However, Alcaraz says he is still a hard-working guy, who keeps a humble demeanor. 

“Well, I didn’t change at all. I just had — well, a lot of things changed but I didn’t change myself, you know, as a person. I think that the people who are around me, my family, my team, my friends, I mean, nothing change with them, with my normal life, let’s say. Of course, I mean, the media, the fans, let’s say, that’s part of course change a lot, but in my normal life, let’s say nothing change,” Alcaraz said, per Sportskeeda.

Alcaraz has also won two Masters titles this year. 

Now, Alcaraz admits that he is surprised by how fast he was able to achieve certain goals and dreams. 

“It was my dream to win a Grand Slam, to become No. 1 of the world, but I didn’t expect to do that at 19 years old, you know. Everything came so fast, faster than I could imagine. Yeah, right now I can realize what I did, my dream came true, but of course it was unexpected,” Alcaraz added. 

Last week, Alcaraz made the Basel semifinal before losing to Felix Auger-Aliassime.

This week, Alcaraz is competing at the Paris Masters.

In Paris, Alcaraz is making his second appearance as last year he reached the round-of-16 in his debut at the tournament. 

After Paris, Alcaraz will go to Turin to make his debut at the ATP Finals.

Alcaraz will certainly be aiming to cap off his season with winning his maiden ATP Finals title.
