Carlos Alcaraz gives up the Davis Cup

Carlos Alcaraz, the world number one in tennis, announced his retirement from participating in the Davis Cup group stage with Spain next Saturday Losing in the semi-finals of the US Open to Russian Daniil Medvedev.

And the Spanish Tennis Federation said in a press statement that Albert Ramos (35 years old, player No. 88 in the world) will replace Alcaraz in the matches that will be held in Valencia from September 12 to 17.

“I was really looking forward to playing for Spain in the Davis Cup, but I have to listen to my body after a very long tour. I need to take a break and rest physically and mentally,” the young prodigy wrote on social networks.

He added, “The program is very difficult, the season is still long and it’s time to recharge my batteries.”

In the absence of Rafael Nadal, Alcaraz was expected to lead the Spanish national team, especially with his Serbian rival Novak Djokovic, who beat him in an exciting final at Wimbledon last July.

Spain will also face the Czech Republic and South Korea in the group stage, aiming to qualify for the Round of 16, which will be held from November 21 to 26 in Malaga.

The top two teams from the group will qualify.
