I know what you’ve been through and being in the final of Roland Garros is an incredible achievement. I think we can still win a Grand Slam.

My team did an incredible job. It was difficult for us, we spent a lot of time on the pitch. I’m happy to see these people there. I know that everyone gives their heart to achieve their goals. I am very grateful to everyone. I call you a team, but in reality you are my family.

I missed my parents here, but I know you have my back from home. All the support you have given me since I was a child has been incredible. As a child, after school, I would run home, turn on the television and watch this tournament. Now I raise the Roland Garros trophy in front of you all.

From the first match to the final, it was a great adventure. Thank you to the supporters and spectators not only during matches, but also during training. I felt at home. You made this tournament special, thank you very much,” Alcaraz said in an on-court interview.
