The Spanish Tennis player spoke about his opponent Tommy Paul. He asserted that the US player had a great season on grass and he is the Queen's champion here.

"He's had a great season on grass, he's the Queen's champion and was playing well here. Today was a difficult match for me. The first set and the start of the second was like playing on clay, long rallies, 10-15 shots. When I lost the first set it was difficult for me but I knew it was a long journey. I'm glad I found the solutions," Alcaraz said in an interview after the match.

The Spanish international further stated that he always believed that he could make a comeback despite losing the first set. He further said that he tried to find solutions during the game.

"I always believe I can come back. If I'm struggling I believe I can find solutions. At grand slams, I have more time to recover. I believe in myself all the time," the Wimbledon 2024 semifinalist added.
