wilander mats revealed what Carlos Alcaraz’s greatest weakness is at the moment. Mats explained: «Carlos Alcaraz will win less than Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, because his serve is too weak at the moment.
When he faces a player like Felix Auger-Aliassime, who shoots very hard and is very precise, Carlos is having a hard time.» The Swede also spoke about Roger Federer: «It is not easy to accept that he will not play anymore.
I was hoping that I could play other tournaments 3-4, but maybe that was just wishful thinking. If we look at the level that the game has reached in the last two years, we find that it is almost impossible to be competitive at 40-41 years old.
Federer took tennis to another level, becoming one of the greatest athletes of all time. He made millions of people fall in love all over the world.»
Carlos Alacaraz, the youngest number 1
This season has offered several points of interest.
Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic shared the first three Grand Slams of 2022, driving away the ghost of retirement for the umpteenth time. The Spaniard won at the Australian Open and Roland Garros, despite the fact that the pain in his foot forced him to undergo a series of infiltrations.
The Serbian, meanwhile, triumphed at Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career, equaling his idol Pete Sampras. The 35-year-old from Belgrade has thus risen to 21 Majors, just one body behind Nadal in the all-time ranking.
The former world number 1 has had a lot of difficulties this year due to his decision not to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. In fact, Nole had to give up the Australian Open and the US Open, two tournaments in which he would have been the main favorite to win.
Carlos Alcaraz won in New York, becoming the youngest number 1 in the history of men’s tennis. The 19-year-old from Murcia improved his season by winning the Masters 1000 in Miami and Madrid.
