Alcaraz has won six ATP Tour-level singles titles, including the 2022 US Open and two Masters 1000 titles. With the US Open win, Alcaraz became the youngest ever men's world No. 1 at 19 years, 4 months and 6 days old, and the first teenager in the Open Era to top the men's rankings.

As a junior, Alcaraz was ranked as high as world No. 22 and won two titles on the ITF Junior Circuit. After turning professional in 2018, he won three titles on the ITF Men's World Tennis Tour and four on the ATP Challenger Tour and broke into the top 100 in rankings in May 2021. Two months later, Alcaraz reached his first ATP Tour final at the ATP Tour 250's 2021 Croatia Open, where he won his first title. He later entered the top 50 after reaching the quarterfinals at the following US Open and won the year-end 2021 Next Generation ATP Finals. After winning his first ATP Tour 500 title at the Rio Open in February 2022, Alcaraz won both his first ATP Tour Masters 1000 title at the Miami Open and his second ATP 500 title at the Barcelona Open in April, propelling him into the top 10.

Carlos Alcaraz was born to parents Carlos and Virginia. He has three siblings. He started playing tennis at the Real Sociedad Club de Campo de Murcia where his father was the tennis academy director. In 2018, he began playing at Juan Carlos Ferrero's Equelite JC Ferrero Sport Academy.

In February 2020, at the age of 16, Alcaraz made his ATP main-draw debut at the Rio Open after receiving a wildcard for the singles main draw. There, he defeated Albert Ramos Viñolas. Alcaraz was ultimately defeated in the second round by Federico Coria.

In 2021, at age 17, Alcaraz qualified for the main draw of the Australian Open, making him the youngest participant in the men's singles. He won his Grand Slam debut defeating fellow qualifier Botic van de Zandschulp in straight sets before losing in the second round to Mikael Ymer.

Alcaraz became the youngest match winner in the Madrid Open's history, defeating Adrian Mannarino as a wildcard and breaking then-18-year-old Rafael Nadal’s record from 2004. In the second round, he lost to five-time champion Nadal on Alcaraz' 18th birthday.

He then won his maiden ATP title by defeating Richard Gasquet and becoming the youngest tour-level champion since 18-year-old Kei Nishikori won the Delray Beach Open in 2008.

At the US Open, Alcaraz defeated world No. 3 Stefanos Tsitsipas in a fifth-set tiebreak to reach the fourth round in the biggest win of his career. At 18 years of age, Alcaraz became the youngest man in a Grand Slam fourth round since 17-year-old Andrei Medvedev at the 1992 French Open, and the youngest man in the US Open fourth round since 17-year-old Michael Chang and 18-year-old Pete Sampras in 1989. He then reached the quarterfinals by defeating qualifier Peter Gojowczyk. Alcaraz became the youngest US Open men's quarterfinalist in the Open Era, the youngest at the tournament since 18-year-old Thomaz Koch in 1963, and the youngest Grand Slam men's singles quarterfinalist since 17-year-old Michael Chang at the 1989 French Open. He then lost to Félix Auger-Aliassime via retirement in the second set in the quarterfinals after injuring his leg.

At the Erste Bank Open, Alcaraz defeated world No. 7 Matteo Berrettini, marking his second win over a top-10 player. As a result, he made his debut as the youngest player in the top 35 on 1 November.

Seeded seventh at the Rio Open, Alcaraz defeated Jaume Munar, Federico Delbonis, top seed Matteo Berrettini and Fabio Fognini to reach his first ATP 500 final. He defeated Diego Schwartzman in the final to win the title. As a result, he made his debut into the top 20 in the singles rankings on February 21, 2022.

Seeded 14th at the Miami Open, Alcaraz beat Márton Fucsovics, Marin Čilić, and 4th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets, then beat Miomir Kecmanović in a three-set thriller to advance to his second Masters 1000 semifinal. There, he defeated the defending champion Hubert Hurkacz for his 50th tour-level win, to advance to his maiden Masters 1000 final, where he defeated 6th seed Casper Ruud to win his first Masters 1000 title. He became the youngest men's champion in the tournament's history. He was congratulated by the King of Spain and Rafael Nadal, and mentioned in the press as being the player to fill the shoes of Roger Federer and Nadal.

At the Barcelona Open, Alcaraz defeated top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in the quarterfinals to enter the top 10 for the first time on April 25. He is the 20th teen to break into top 10 overall since rankings were established in 1973, the first since Andy Murray in 2007, and the youngest since Rafael Nadal also on April 25, 2005 at the same event. Alcaraz then saved two match points against Alex de Minaur in the semifinals to advance to the final, where he defeated Pablo Carreño Busta in straight sets to win the title.

A day after his 19th birthday, at the Madrid Open, he defeated 5-time Madrid champion, world No. 4 and third seed Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals to become the first teenager to beat him on clay. He also ended Nadal's 25-match win streak against fellow Spaniards. The following day, he went on to beat the world No. 1 and top seed Novak Djokovic in the semifinals for his 6th straight top-10 win, and became the youngest player to win a match against a world No. 1 since Rafael Nadal against Roger Federer in the third round of the 2004 Miami Open. He also became the first man ever to beat Djokovic and Nadal back-to-back on clay. In the final, he went on to win his fourth title for the season and second Masters 1000 in his career defeating world No. 3 and second seed defending champion Alexander Zverev, thus defeating the top three seeds in three consecutive matches. It is the first time since David Nalbandian in Madrid in 2007 that a player has defeated three top-5 players at a Masters 1000 event, and Alcaraz is the youngest player to do so since the start of the ATP Tour in 1990 at the same event. He also became the youngest champion in tournament history. As a result, he climbed to a career-high of world No. 6 in the rankings on May 9, 2022.
