Earlier this week, Novak Djokovic summed up 2023 as a great success for his personal, despite a Davis Cup loss to Italy that prevented him from winning another team title with Serbia. He also looked ahead to 2024 and made it clear that his goal is to win all four Grand Slam tournaments, despite already crossing the age of 37.

Given the abilities he has shown over the past year, there is no one who does not take his words very seriously, and one of them is his opponent on the court, ranked No. 2 in the world, Carlos Alcaraz, who said: "Djokovic is indeed capable of taking all four major tournaments, but we are here to prevent it." He referred to this goal as a team and attributed the "containment program" to the other top young tennis players.
The Spaniard made the remarks during a press conference in the Mexican capital, where he will participate in a showcase match. "Djokovic has shown over the last year that he is ready for his task, but there are players among us who can beat him," declared Alcaraz, who looked amused during the remarks and did not take the broad smile off his face.
Alcaraz also spoke about his own ambitions: "I try to concentrate on my career and dream of being the best tennis player in history. I have to develop next year. I work with a psychologist to achieve this goal. 2024 will be very challenging with the Olympics after Wimbledon. I will work hard to get a medal for my country."
