Through his Twitter profile, Mark Petchey expressed some interesting considerations about Carlos Alcaraz: He said: “I don’t think Alcaraz will win 20 Grand Slam titles. The Big 3 have broken a myriad of records and made us believe that certain numbers are normal.
Carlos may not even get to 10 Grand Slams, it’s not an easy feat. However, like Bjorn Borg, I think Alcaraz will be one of the most influential tennis players in the history of the game. His tennis is nothing short of glittering.” Guest in the latest edition of the Monday Match Analysis Show, the well-known journalist Steve Flink said that Alcaraz will have much more pressure this year: “Carlos Alcaraz was the kid on the rise in 2022 and could play on the wings of enthusiasm.
His performance left everyone speechless and he even managed to close the year at the top of the ATP ranking. He himself admitted that he did not expect to get results like this so soon.”
Carlos Alcaraz the new tennis star
The explosion of Carlos Alcaraz has brought tennis into a new era, also thanks to the painful retirements of Roger Federer and Serena Williams.
The 19-year-old Spaniard left everyone speechless last year, winning the US Open and becoming the youngest number 1 in the history of men’s tennis. As if that weren’t enough, Juan Carlos Ferrero’s player won two Masters 1000 (Miami and Madrid) and as many ATP 500 (Rio and Barcelona).
Many believe that the Murciano will become a global icon, thanks to his innate charisma and a very spectacular style of play. The last few months have not been easy for Carlos, who has had to deal with several injuries. A leg injury sustained in training forced him to miss the Australian Open, also causing him to lose the first position in the ATP ranking.
To oust him from the throne after 20 weeks of reign was Novak Djokovic, able to impose himself for the tenth time ‘Down Under’ The Serbian lost only one set in the whole tournament. Although he is still very young, insiders do not hesitate to comment on the future of Alcaraz.
