Alcaraz's Progress: Dominant Paris Victory Shows Improvement.

Carlos Alcaraz is feeling positive about his injured forearm, stating that it's improving steadily. He showcased this progress with a commanding victory over J.J. Wolf in the first round of the French Open.

Despite facing an injury setback and limited match practice, 21-year-old Carlos Alcaraz showed his best tennis in a dominant first-round win over American J.J. Wolf at the French Open. 

Despite wearing a compression sleeve on his injured arm, Alcaraz expressed satisfaction with his performance, stating, "I think I showed my best tennis today. I tried everything I could to be here at 100%."

Alcaraz's match lasted just one hour and 51 minutes, with his groundstrokes impressively sharp. He hit 27 winners against just 16 unforced errors, showcasing his formidable skills. 

Although he would have liked more match practice, Alcaraz feels confident in his preparation and the improvement of his injured forearm.

Next up, Alcaraz will face qualifier Jesper de Jong in the second round after the Dutchman's surprising victory over Britain's Jack Draper in five sets.
