Carlos Alcaraz makes offer to Rafael Nadal as he shares new ‘dream’ after Wimbledon win

Carlos Alcaraz has underlined his desire to fulfil one of his dreams before Rafael Nadal decides to retire from professional tennis.

Carlos Alcaraz has admitted that he would love to team up with Rafael Nadal to represent Spain in the men’s doubles event at next year’s Olympic Games. The 20-year-old wrapped up his first Wimbledon title on Sunday with a historic victory over Novak Djokovic to rubber-stamp his status as one of the world’s leading players.

Alcaraz is seen by many as the natural heir to Nadal, who has been the pride of Spain over the last two decades but looks set to pass the torch on to his younger compatriot when he eventually retires from the sport. Nadal recently suggested that he will step back from tennis before the start of 2025, meaning that next year’s Olympics could be among his final tournament appearances.

It seems as though Alcaraz is eager to play doubles with Nadal while he still has the chance, with the two-time Grand Slam winner revealing to El Partidazo de Cope that he would be interested in partnering his idol in Paris next year. The tennis events will be staged at Roland Garros, where Nadal has enjoyed many of the best moments of his career at the French Open.

“It would be a dream to live the experience of playing doubles with your idol,” insisted Alcaraz, who expressed a similar view earlier this year when he said: “Let’s see how he’s doing and how he’s going, you know, in this year. Hopefully, he’s going great but for me, it could be a dream to play doubles with him.”
