BUENOS AIRES - Carlos Alcaraz said Monday if he had to choose between an Olympic gold at the 2024 Paris Olympics or the French Open title he would go for the gold.

The 20-year-old who won the US Open in 2022 and Wimbledon in 2023 was asked about his season goals ahead of the Argentina Open in Buenos Aires where he is defending champion.

"If I had to choose one target this year I'd choose the Olympic gold over Roland-Garros," the Spaniard said.

The French Open will be played from 20 May to 9 June with the Olympic tennis at the same Roland Garros venue from 27 July to 4 August.

"I'm on good form and I played well in Australia. And the tennis I've played in training on clay courts has been very good too," Alcaraz said.
