Alcaraz Withdraws from Barcelona Open Due to Injury

April 14, (THEWILL)- Carlos Alcaraz has been forced to withdraw from the upcoming Barcelona Open due to a right arm injury. The 20-year-old Spaniard, who is currently ranked world number three, sustained the injury during the Monte Carlo Masters earlier this week, leading him to miss the prestigious tournament.

Alcaraz, a two-time champion of the Barcelona Open, had been eagerly anticipated to defend his title at the event. The young phenom, who has already won two Grand Slam titles, had been tipped as the favourite to claim victory once again in Barcelona. However, his recovery from the right arm injury has not progressed as quickly as hoped, and the tournament organisers have announced his withdrawal from the competition.

In a statement released on X, the Barcelona Open organisers posted: “Alcaraz has suffered from the injury sustained in Monte Carlo, and did not have a good feeling in his training on Sunday. Despite having tried until the last moment, he will not be in the Barcelona Open.”

The main draw of the Barcelona Open is set to commence on Monday, with the tournament concluding next Sunday. Alcaraz’s withdrawal leaves a significant void in the tournament’s field, as the young star had been widely expected to be a dominant force on the clay courts of Barcelona.

Fans and experts alike will be hoping that the injury sustained in Monte Carlo will heal quickly, allowing the rising star to regain his form and continue his pursuit of Grand Slam glory.
