Lendl reflects on Alcaraz
Ivan Lendl is the latest name in the tennis world to praise World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz. «I don’t know. I don’t see it that way. I know that Carlos Alcaraz is very well trained.
He has a great team around him. Those guys are very, very good at what they do, the Spanish. And Juan Carlos Ferrero is fantastic and they are teaching him well, they are teaching him the right things, they are teaching him all the protocols.
He is an extremely polite young man. He’s fine. The Spanish boys do something very good. The French do that too. They retain their former professionals and connect them to the programs,» Lendl said. In Melbourne, the Slam champion will try to win the Slam title, but a more difficult task will be to defend the top of the ranking.
Several players could aspire to that position: the most complex Rafael Nadal, while Casper Ruud will not defend any point on Australian soil, taking into account his retirement before the last edition.
