News about Carlos Alcaraz: The Spaniard's personal trainer discloses his rigorous training regimen

Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz has experienced a meteoric rise in his tennis career over the past 12 months and is showing no signs of stopping, thanks to the help of his physical trainer Alberto Leddo. 

The 18-year-old is currently ranked as world number 19, compared to only 132 this time around last year, and the rise can be attributed to his performance which included winning the Rio Open last month, third round  Including making a place.  At the Australian Open, winning last year's ATP Next Gen Finals and now making the round of 16 at the Indian Wells Masters, he can still advance in the competition.

Alcaraz himself has admitted that his sessions at the gym have helped him achieve these accolades, but Leddo reveals how he tailors his workouts to his game.

"Carlos is a very good athlete, he is not only a good tennis player, but he is also a very good athlete," the trainer told Punto de Braque.

"He never said to me, 'Why? Why do I have to do this thing?' He never said no to a thing and that's so important to the process and the work.

“We were looking at resistance because, for example, at Roland Garros – five sets – you can spend four or five hours on the court, so you have to have the metabolic resistance to withstand those loads, you have to be stronger and faster.  but at the same time time resistant.”

And it is not only his exercise and fitness that the US Open quarter-finalist has kept in mind to improve his game, but it is also his diet that he takes very seriously.

"Carlos diet is based on real food, he doesn't eat processed food or anything like that, even the supplements he takes are based on real food - helping a real high performance athlete like him to function.  And getting energy requires glycogen, much like carbohydrates and a fraction of fat.

“Of course he also needs protein which is a generator of muscle – right now thanks to food, rest and work habits he has developed the body of a proper tennis player, he has already reached his ideal body  "

Alcaraz will face France's Gael Monfils in the fourth round of the BNP Paribas Masters tomorrow.
