World No.1 Carlos Alcaraz credits his colleagues for his first Most Improved Player of the Year Award.
The 19-year-old Spanish rising star had displayed his tennis prowess nearly throughout the 2022 season. Thus his fellow tennis players voted to elect him as the Most Improved Player of the Year in the 2022 ATP Year-End Awards.
Alcaraz began the 2022 season at No.32 though he capped off as the youngest and first teenage No.1 in the history of ATP Rankings. Meanwhile, he made several astonishing records as he became the youngest men’s Grand Slam champion since 2005 after winning the US Open and the youngest ATP 500 champion at Rio Open since 2009.
“I’m really happy to receive this award, and I want to say thank you to all my colleagues who voted me as the Most Improved Player of the Year,” Alcaraz reflected on his achievement.
The Spaniard also added, “For me, it’s an amazing achievement. This year has been a really good year for me, a dream year for me, and I’m looking to improve the year in 2023. Thank you very much.”
Before beginning his 2023 campaign, Carlos Alcaraz will participate in Mubadala World Tennis Championships, which is set to take place from 16-18 December in Abu Dhabi.
