    Alvaro Alcaraz Early Life & Bio

    Alvaro, born, Alvaro Alcaraz Garfia is the son of his father, Carlos Alcaraz Gonzalez, and his mother, Virginia Garfia Escandon. He was brought into this world on 2nd November 1999. In the coming November 2023, he will be turning 24 years old.

    Furthermore, his birthplace is El Palmar, Murcia in Spain. So, stating the obvious, he holds the nationality of Spain by birth. In addition, his ethnic background is purely Spanish.

    Growing up, Alvaro saw his family very much into tennis. His father was formerly a tennis academy director at the Real Codiedad Club de Compo de Murcia. Hence, it is evident that he was into the sport from a very young age. Even more so, we’re sure that Garfia began playing very early like his brother, Carlos did, at the age of 4.

    Garfia The Eldest Of All The Alcaraz Siblings

    He is the eldest among all the 3 of his siblings. Carlos Alcaraz, Sergio Alcaraz, and Jaime Alcaraz are his younger brothers.

    Talking about them, Carlos was born on 5th May 2003. And, as you may already be aware, he has been a pro tennis player since 2018. Likewise, the youngest of them all, Jaime Alcaraz was born in the year 2012 and is 11 years old as of now. Following in the footsteps of his family, Jamie has become a rising tennis player in 2023.

    Unfortunately, nothing much is known about his 3rd brother, Sergio. Unlike any other Alcaraz brother, he has maintained a low profile and likes to stay off the radar. Anyhow, we do believe that he might also be a huge fan of the sport.

    Alvaro Alcaraz Previously Had A Career In Tennis

    Carlos’s big bro has played a total of three professional matches in his short-lived career.

    Previously, in 2019, he also played a singles match with Serge Perez Contri. This match also took place at the ITF event. Unfortunately, he lost this one.

    Similarly, in 2020, he competed against Sergio Noguera Navarro and Fernando Perez-Rodenas Herrera. Both the matches took place at the Clay ITF Event in Spain. Sadly, ever since he was defeated in them both, Alvaro gave up on his career in tennis.

    As of now, it is unclear if the 24 year-old will return back to his athletic lifestyle. Perhaps, for almost 3 years, he’s been training hard alongside his brother to make a comeback. That is uncertain but not impossible.

    He Is His Brother, Carlos Alcaraz’s Biggest Supporter

    Alvaro is the most important part of Carlos’s professional journey as well as his inner circle. The two brothers indeed share a very special bond.

    You may often see the older one accompanying his sibling during his warm-ups before marches at Grand Slam events. He also never misses Carlos Alcaraz’s practice sessions with coach, Juan Carlos Ferrero. Additionally, it was also noticed that he was in the audience while his brother Carlos won his first Wimbledon title.

    Does Alvaro Alcaraz Garfia Have A Girlfriend?

    The answer to whether Alvaro Alcaraz has a girlfriend or not is unknown. Despite having a famed career in tennis before, he stays off the grid. Moreover, if you take a look at his profile on Instagram, you’ll notice that he has a private account.

    Thus, it is hard to figure out if Garfia is currently single or taken.

    Garfia’s Whereabouts In 2023

    As we’ve mentioned above, Alvaro hardly ever makes a grand appearance these days. So, it is pretty obvious that he’s living a laid-back lifestyle in 2023.

    Nevertheless, we do see him often cheering his brother from the crowd, either during his matches or during the practice sessions. Thus, we assume that he lives nearby to where his brother does i.e., in Villena, Spain.

    On the contrary, it is also possible that he might still be living with his parents in their family home in El Palmar, Murcia.

    What Is Alvaro Alcaraz Garfia’s Net Worth?

    According to multiple sources, the ex-athlete has a net worth of $2 million. It seems his short-lived career as a tennis player worked in his favor, at least financially.
