Carlos Alcaraz reflects on his US Open run: "I am very happy, but I have not changed"
Carlos Alcaraz is taking a lot from his run at the US Open, even though it ended with a retirement in the quarterfinals.
The 18-year-old from Spain retired down a set and 3-1 against Felix Auger-Aliassime becuse of a right abductor injury. He had played two consecutive five-setters to reach the quarterfinals, including a memorable win against No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas in the third round.
"I am very happy, but I have not changed," he told Spanish press. "I got a lot of experience for subsequent tournaments, but I am going to carry on being the same person and player."
