Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz are extraordinary according to John McEnroe. The former American tennis player gave an interview to Tennis Magazin in which he praised the two young talents on the circuit, who are having a great season.
For the Spaniard, four trophies have already been won in six finals played. Two Masters 1000, on two different surfaces, and two 500 in this 2022. Only two lost finals and both at the hands of two Italians: in Hamburg defeated by Lorenzo Musetti.
In Umag, at the Croatian Open, it was Sinner himself who triumphed in the last act against the Spanish number two. McEnroe had great words about both players: «Sinner is a good guy, although he still has to learn some things, especially he has to improve at the net.
He is a great player who has grown over time, but he is always determined to improve even more.» For the South Tyrolean it was also a difficult year because of the change of coach, going from Riccardo Piatti to the duo Vagnozzi, Cahill; this decision, according to the Grand Slam champion, could lead him to great successes.
John McEnroe: «Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz are extraordinary»
He also said: «I was surprised that he made this decision, I don’t know what exactly happened. I wish Jannik the best, I’m sure he will continue to improve and win some Grand Slams in the future.»
Words for Carlos Alcaraz by John McEnroe. In the case of the Spaniard, winner of four titles this season, both on hard courts and clay, the former tennis player first launches into a comparison with the Big 3, and then praises a particular characteristic.
“Alcaraz is fantastic: tennis players like him only appear every ten years. He is like Rafa, Novak or Roger. I’m not saying he’s going to match him, but what he offers on the pitch is extraordinary, especially the way he moves on the pitch, no one moves like him. He also gives off great energy, he is a great encouragement for tennis, a figure like him was needed in this sport.»
