DANIEL LEAL/AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE CARLOS Alcaraz returns against Jiri Lehecka in the Round of 16 of the Queen’s Club tennis tournament in London. Alcaraz prevailed, 6-2, 6-3.

PARIS, France (AFP) — Newly-crowned Wimbledon champion Carlos Alcaraz has confirmed he will play this week’s Hopman Cup tournament in France.

“I can’t wait to be there, playing for Spain is always a source of pride,” the 20-year-old told Spanish sports daily Marca.

On Sunday, world No. 1 Alcaraz beat Novak Djokovic to win the second Grand Slam title of his career at Wimbledon.

Alcaraz will team up with 72nd-ranked Rebeka Masarova in the mixed team tournament which returns after four years and will be played in Nice on the French Riviera.

“We have booked his hotel room, he’s coming,” said Caroline Stefani, director of press relations for the Hopman Cup.

Spain will start their tournament on Friday against the Belgium team of Elise Mertens and David Goffin.

In the same group as Spain and Belgium, are Croatia, represented by Donna Vekic and Borna Coric.

In the other group, France led by Richard Gasquet and Alize Cornet, will face Denmark with Holger Rune and Clara Tauson, and Swiss pair Celine Naef and Leandro Riedi.
