Aslan Karatsev was born in 1993 in Vladikavkaz, but three years later he and his family moved to Israel. There he spent the next ten years, began to train and at twelve won the national championship, and then returned with his father to Russia, first to Taganrog, then to Moscow.
Karatsev played in junior tournaments and was recognized the best in 2011, but he didn’t start playing tennis in his homeland, because they say there are better conditions for tennis in Europe. At 21, the athlete began to train in Germany thanks to the help and support of Dmitry Tursunov. Then he moved to Barcelona.
In 2017 Karatsev suffered a knee injury, due to which he missed six months and had to promptly return to form and position. For a long time he could not rise above the Futures, the tennis tournaments that have the lowest status, but through which all professional athletes go. Aslan risked getting stuck at this level, giving up and quitting the sport. But he kept fighting.
