What happened in the match between Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic at Roland Garros was a shock to the entire tennis world. Tennis experts and legends of the discipline from the beginning of the Paris Slam saw the Spaniards as the winner of the event. Even the defiant John McEnroe was in favor of Alcaraz. However, he quickly showed in the match against Djokovic that this is not yet his moment to win. Alcaraz lost the match not only with the Serb, but above all with his own body. The Spaniard struggled with recurring cramps in every part of his body from the middle of the match.

Looks like he’s been reborn as he just won the Queens grass competition.
