Former legends amazed by Carlos Alcaraz
The tennis player from Murcia at his age is already one of the most successful players on the circuit.
Numbers destined to grow in the coming years. Spencer Segura talked about the incredible talent of Alcaraz, who fully represents the new generation.He told: “He has shots that no one has. On the pitch, he knows how to angle. Off the court, he can float the ball.
He has all the shots. I think his backhand is the better shot of the two. I think from now on though, Alcaraz will only get better, I don’t think Djokovic can get any better now.”In response Jimmy Connors called Alcaraz the future of tennis, stating that on the contrary Djokovic and Nadal are starting to get old.The US legend explained: “We always talk about it, he (Alcaraz) is the next generation.
He’s the one who will take the game to the next level, because Federer is known to be gone, Nadal is injured. Let’s hope he comes back, he wants to play one more year.”
