Carlos Alcaraz reached his first major quarter-final at the US Open.

Alcaraz Reveals Injury Suffered At US Open

Spaniard hopes to return at Indian Wells

Carlos Alcaraz informed his fans on Instagram Friday that he suffered an upper leg injury during his run at the US Open.

The #NextGenATP Spaniard visited Dr. Juanjo LoĢpez after retiring during his quarter-final match against Felix Auger-Aliassime. That visit revealed a fibrillar tear in his vastus medialis and lateral quadriceps as well as an elongation in his adductor.

“I have to rest for a few weeks and recover in order to reach Indian Wells with the best level,” Alcaraz wrote. “Thank you very much for the support!”

The 18-year-old made history in New York, where he became the youngest player in the Open Era to reach the US Open quarter-finals. The highlight of his run came in the third round, in which he stunned third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in a five-set thriller.
