Family Background

Carlos Alcaraz Gonzalez and Virginia Garfia Escandon are young Alcaraz’s parents. Including him, his parents have four sons – all older than Jaime. His older brothers are Alvaro Alcaraz, Carlos Alcaraz, and Sergio Alcaraz.

Talking about his parents, his father, Carlos Gonzalez used to work as a tennis academy director at the Real Codiedad Club de Compo de Murcia. Likewise, his mom, Virginia is an employee at the IKEA. Together, the husband-wife duo have a well-settled life in Spain.

Similarly, Jaime’s brothers, Alvaro and Carlos are very much into tennis. The eldest of them all, Alvaro Alcaraz was born on 2nd November 1999. He had a short-lived career in tennis that ended in 2020.

Carlos, on the other hand, is a star tennis player. He was born on 5th May 2003 and began playing at the young age of 4 years. Since 2018, he has been a pro athlete, based in Spain.

On the other hand, his other brother, Sergio likes to stay off the radar. Hence, not much is known about him.

Is Jaime Also Into Tennis? His Career So Far

Indeed, the brother of the new Wimbledon champion is fond of the sport. As a matter of fact, he’s following in the footsteps of his big bro and becoming a sensational tennis player already.

In July of 2023, Carlos Alcaraz defeated Novak Djokovic and won the Wimbledon game. Merely a few weeks after that, Jaime secured the first place in the Under-12 division on the Rafa Nadal Tour that took place in Madrid. He gained victory by defeating Beltran Serrano De Pablo, considered one of the best players in his age group in Spain.

Previously, in 2016, his own brother won the same trophy. At that time, the No. 1 ATP-ranked champion was 14 years old. And, fast forward to 7 years later, his younger sibling surpassed him by bringing the trophy home at just 12. It is definitely an extremely proud moment for the whole Garfia-Alcaraz family. Many people are also calling the brother duo the “next Williams sisters.”

Additionally, we do hope to see Jaime Garfia competing in the Masters event as well. It is scheduled to be held from 2nd to 5th November in Mallorca. Given his extraordinary talent and great genes, we’re sure he will win this competition as well.

What Does Jaime’s Brother Has To Say Regarding His Skills?

According to Carlos, he strongly believes that his little brother has a “better forehand,” making him best-suited for the game. In addition to this, he has also shared that his sibling is fond of tennis player Dominic Thiem and often “looks up to him.”

Interestingly enough, Thiem has also complemented the young prospect once. In a video posted by his brother, he noticed that Jaime uses his Babolat Pure Strike racquet. Below, he commented, “He’s playing the right racket @carlitosalcarazz”. To this, Carlos replied, “@domithiem he loves you!! You are his idol”.

Time and again, Carlos Alcaraz is seen supporting his brother. Like him, we are certain that their whole family is quite understanding about Jaime’s need to be at the top of his game someday.

Where Is Today?

Since the youngest of the Alcaraz brothers is just a kid, it is possible that he still lives with his parents in El Palmar, Murcia. Moreover, it is also highly likely that Jaime, along with his rising career, is also focused on school at the moment. He is just a middle schooler, yet to receive a diploma from high school.

Therefore, until and unless he is done with that, we don’t think he’ll move out. Over and above this, as mentioned, he is still very young. The little guy has to figure out a lot before he starts living on his own.

Furthermore, as he continues with his tennis career, there is no doubt that like his world-champion brother, he’ll start living his life on his own terms.

His Net Worth In 2024

According to the sources, this Alcaraz sibling has a net worth of $1 million. To be able to be called a “millionaire” at just 12 years old is quite the achievement for Jaime. As he explores his career in tennis further, his net worth is bound to increase.

Furthermore, he also comes from a rich family. His brother, Carlos, alone has a huge net worth of $14 million. In addition, his eldest brother is worth $2 million as well.
