If anyone has witnessed the explosion of Spanish talent at such a young age, it is precisely Toni Nadal. Seeing Carlos Alcaraz at the level that allowed him to win the last edition of the US Open, there is no doubt that he will be compared to what Rafael Nadal was doing at that age.

His uncle, the renowned Spanish coach, went through his traditional column in the newspaper El País to talk about the feat that Juan Carlos Ferrero’s pupil achieved in New York. “In two weeks he has achieved what many great tennis players yearn to achieve during an entire sports career; the precociousness in which he has achieved it will be very difficult to overcome, ”said the Canadian’s trainer Félix Auger-Aliassime.

«They told me about him when I was 12 or 13 years old and the first time I saw him play, when I was 14 or 15 years old, I was very impressed, he has a speed that no other tennis player on the circuit has.» he added he. Similarly, he sees Carlitos as the best prepared to be the next great dominator of the ATP circuit.

For now he is number one in the world. At the same time, he believes that this will be just the first of many Grand Slam titles that he intends to win throughout his career. Now the challenge will be to see if he is capable of beating Rafa himself and Novak Djokovic in a “big”.

On this occasion he was lucky not to have to challenge them on his way to the title, as well as Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas. How many Grand Slams do you think Carlos Alcaraz can win in 2023?

Rafa Nadal won two Slams in 2022
