An old video of Carlos Alcaraz expressing his hunger and desire to win both the French Open and Wimbledon was released again after the Spaniard won the 2024 French Open on Sunday. He won his third major title after defeating Alexander Zverev 6-3, 2-6, 5-7, 6-1, 6-2 in the final game of the Roland Garros on June 9.

However, the 12-year-old Alcaraz clip has been making headlines on social media as he won the Claycourt Slam. The Spaniard stated in the clip that winning Wimbledon and the French Open were his dreams.

"What is your dream if you become a pro?"

"To win Roland-Garros and Wimbledon," Alcaraz answered.

Watch the full video here:

The Spaniard's first dream came true after an almost five-hour fight on the centre court as he overcame Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon 2023 final. Alcaraz, who is far younger, stunned the four-time winner with amazing mental toughness.

Speaking about the game here, the 21-year-old star won five straight games to win the third set and take the lead in the match. Alcaraz stepped up to take the second set, winning 6-1. However, in the fifth set, the Spanish player battled valiantly to win the title and achieve his long-held ambition.

The last month we were struggling a lot with the injury: Carlos Alcaraz

"It has been incredible work. The last month we were struggling a lot with the injury. I am really grateful to have the team that I have and the people I have around. I know that everyone in my team is giving their heart just to make me improve as a player and a person. To grow up. So I am really grateful and I call you a team, but it is a family," Carlos Alcaraz said.

"I want to congratulate Sascha [Alexander Zverev] for a great beginning of this year, a great level of tennis, a great tournament. I know you give your heart every day you step on the court. I am pretty sure you will have the opportunities to win slams or this tournament very, very soon," he added further.
