Spanish tennis player Carlos Alcaraz has resumed training on clay. The number 1 in the world reported two weeks ago due to an injury to his right leg for the Australian Open, the first grand slam tournament of the year.
“Back on court and back on clay,” 19-year-old Alcaraz wrote on social media with photos showing him training at his coach Juan Carlos Ferrero’s academy.
Alcaraz is preparing for a series of clay court tournaments in South America. The intention is that he will make his comeback in Buenos Aires in mid-February.
In Alcaraz’s absence from the Australian Open, his compatriot Rafael Nadal was seeded first in Melbourne. However, the world number 2 lost in the second round after suffering a hip injury.
Alcaraz could lose its number 1 position in the very short term. Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas can replace him. Both must take the title to top the global ranking in ten days.
