Alcaraz: “I want to win but at the same time have fun”
The young Spanish tennis player commented on Djokovic’s comeback against Djere.”I watched the first two sets, then I had to go to sleep.
But, when I went to bed, I thought Novak would come back, that’s for sure. He proved once again that he is one of the best in history. He came from two sets to zero, I think I saw him six, seven times. So it’s something crazy. Playing at 36 and doing the same things as when he was 20 is incredible.
We have to give him credit, and it’s something I admire,” declared the tennis player from Murcia.Alcaraz then explained that he felt good and was satisfied with the game played up to now at the American Slam: “I think I play at a good level.
I feel very, very good on the pitch, at ease. I always say I can improve, but at the moment I’m very, very happy with the level of play I’m reaching.”The young Spanish champion was then asked if the need to entertain sometimes clashes in his head with the desire to win: “Sometimes.
I mean, obviously I want to win every match I play, but at the same time I want to have fun, try different things, make people enjoy watching tennis, watching my matches. Sometimes I wonder which is more important: whether to win or do great things (smiling). Of course, winning matches is always the most important thing.”
