As a huge tennis fan, I like to watch pretty good tennis, high level, so those players or the best players in the world, I like to watch,” the 20-year-old replied.

This has led many to believe that it is the sole reason behind Alcarz’s awkwardness after the question, but at the end of the day, these are just baseless rumors. Alcaraz has no time for these rumors as he has a lot more important things to deal with.

Carlos Alcaraz will face the world no.6 Germany’s Alexander Zverev in his quarterfinal debut at the Australian Open on  January 24. Alcaraz will be eyeing to progress in the tournament and take the trophy home but for that, he has to win three more games. Alcaraz can’t take Zverev lightly as he has a lead over Alcaraz on head-to-head and he will be looking to increase that lead on 24th January.
