Carlos Alcaraz withdraws from Barcelona Open due to injury

Posted : 14 April 2024

Carlos Alcaraz's bid for a third consecutive Barcelona Open title ended abruptly on Sunday as he withdrew from the tournament due to a right arm injury, a setback reminiscent of his recent absence from the Monte Carlo Masters. The timing is particularly unfortunate as it coincides with the impending French Open, intensifying concerns about his readiness for the upcoming Grand Slam event.


Despite valiant efforts to recover in time, Alcaraz's withdrawal was confirmed by tournament organizers through a statement, underscoring the severity of his injury. With his Barcelona Open campaign cut short, the young tennis prodigy now shifts his focus to the Madrid Open, an event where he has previously tasted success, triumphing in the past two editions.


Alcaraz, who boasts titles at the US Open and Wimbledon, is yet to capture the elusive French Open crown, with his best performance being a semifinal appearance last year. With the Roland Garros tournament fast approaching, the pressure mounts for Alcaraz to recuperate swiftly and optimize his preparations for the clay court major, slated to commence on May 26th.


Meanwhile, in a contrasting narrative, Rafael Nadal, a stalwart of the sport and a perennial force on clay courts, returns to competitive action in Barcelona after a hiatus prompted by a hip injury earlier this year. Nadal, granted a wildcard entry, faces the challenge of rebuilding his form and ranking following a prolonged absence from the ATP Tour, culminating in a drop to 646th in the world rankings.
