At his best, Carlos Alcaraz is a show-stopping shotmaker.  

Alcaraz will be starring in a new Netflix show.

Report: Saudis Make Bid for Unified Tour

The 20-year-old Alcaraz, who beat Rafael Nadal to win the Netflix Slam earlier this month, will star in a new Netflix docuseries set to air in 2025.

Netflix announced the project with this video of Alcaraz writing "Game. Set.Netflix" on the camera lens.

Wimbledon winner Alcaraz spoke out about the impact negative and hateful comments about players on social media can have on their psyche and mental health.

The Netflix series will enable Alcaraz to share some of his off-court experiences and state of mind at tournaments.

"I think [social media] has a really important impact to the players, to the athletes," Alcaraz told the media in Indian Wells this week. "There are a lot of players who, let's say, don't think about it or don't affect in a bad way the negative comments, but there are a lot of players who, well, affect very, very, let's say, bad, you know, the bad comments, you know.

"I'm trying not to think about it. I'm trying not to see 100% the comments, but I think it's something that we are not going to hide from that.

"There are a lot of people who are going to comment good things, bad things, when we are not in the position to control it. But we have to deal in the best way as we can, and that's something that I'm trying to do."
