His family suffered a financial crisis in 2011, that too to the extent where they could not even afford Alex's traveling finances. That's when his longtime coach Adolfo Gutierrez stepped up and did everything he could to help him.
Alex's mother Esther described his coach Adolfo as:
In 2011, we were hit pretty hard. I couldn't afford to finance his travelling anywhere. I was very lucky that his coach, knowing my situation, wouldn't accept a cent for training, Alex. But he was at a point where he needed to get out there to develop further.
Alex is the eldest among his four siblings. He has a brother named Dominic and two sisters namely Sara, and Christina. The tennis player proudly shared the moment of his family snapshot on social media during the Christmas in December 2017.

His parents Anibal and Esther ran the Italian family resturant business for two decades and closed it when Alex was at the age of 16. His hardworking father Anibal then opened a few car washes in Spain.
Though Alex has spent most of his life in Spain, in the January 2019 interview with smh.com.au, the tennis player uttered that he feels a strong bond and loves Australia. The emerging player is entirely focused on developing his tennis career and has set his ultimate goal to represent the green and gold. That may be the reason why Alex has yet to drop a single hint regarding his possible girlfriend, as of January 2019.
