Carlos Alacaraz's opinion on the matter

There were a lot of individuals who gave their opinion on the matter and one of the people was defending Wimbledon champion and World number 3 Carlos Alcaraz. The Spaniard was asked to give his views on this matter to which he gave a straightforward reply saying, "It’s a difficult situation. She said she was going to play mixed doubles with Andy in the last Wimbledon of his career I’m sure she didn’t want to pull out of the mixed doubles. She had her reasons to do it. I guess physical problems."

This was the safest answer given by Alcaraz and he has decided to stay away from any controversy regarding the issue. It does make sense that Raducanu did not have any selfish reasons behind this decision as Andy Murray was also one of her biggest idols. This was a smart answer from the upcoming talent who has avoided any backlash with this statement.
