With the world number two closing in on the Indian Wells title with his victory over Felix Auger-Aliassime on Thursday, Carlos Alcaraz wants to follow in the footsteps of Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic by winning titles immediately after returning from injury.

Due to injuries to his abdominal and hamstring, Alcaraz was out for more than three months, but he made a strong comeback by winning in Buenos Aires last month.

After withdrawing from an ATP 500 event in Acapulco due to a strained hamstring, the Spaniard advanced to the final four of Indian Wells on Thursday by defeating the Canadian Auger-Aliassime.

he told, “I look to the big players, Djokovic or Rafa, when they are coming from an injury and probably they have a great percentage to win the tournament after an injury,”

“I looked at them a little bit when I was injured, you know, training. They motivated me to play a good game after an injury in the first tournaments.

“I was surprised when I won Buenos Aires, but right now, I’m not surprised at it.”

Just over six months after defeating the Italian in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open to win his first Grand Slam title, Alcaraz will face Jannik Sinner.

Alcaraz said, “I enjoyed that match, because I had to be really, really focused in every shot. I had to play my best,”

“That’s why Jannik is such a great player. Not only with great serve, great movements, it is because he pushes the opponent to the limit. Tries to play aggressive with great shots.

“For the opponent it is really tough to be focused mentally and physically during the whole match. That’s what I love playing against him, that it pushes me to the limit.”

The other semi-final spots were decided on Wednesday when Daniil Medvedev beat Alejandro Davidovich Fokina of Spain to set up a match with American Frances Tiafoe. Medvedev was aiming for a fourth straight ATP title after winning in Rotterdam, Doha, and Dubai.
