Sharapova praised on social media after meeting the ATP star.
After meeting Carlos Alcaraz in Toronto, Maria Sharapova included a photo with the Spaniard in a photo dump from Toronto that she posted on Instagram.
Sharapova what “strikes” her about Carlos Alcaraz in a recent interview for Gazzetta dello Sport.”Carlos is incredible.What strikes me about him is his fighting spirit on every point.
He manages to put on a show and inflame the crowd every time he sets foot on the field. I’m curious to see where he can go in his career. I think in the beginning the comparisons to Rafa were inevitable but he’s developing a style and a personality of his own that will make him a one of a kind player,” Sharapova said.Yet, Sharapova also expressed her feelings about Jannik Sinner’s game.
“I know Jannik quite well.He is a serious and humble boy. I like his fluid and powerful style, he almost seems like he doesn’t struggle, but in reality there is a great effort behind his game. I think he has reached a good level of tennis but now I hope he is ready to win too.Fans have been waiting for his triumph for a long time,” said Sharapova.
How did Alcaraz feel meeting Sharapova
Carlos Alcaraz talked about his meeting with Sharapova.”I watched her, you know, a lot of matches.
She was a great tennis player. She was probably one of the best players in the world. And I was in shock because I didn’t expect her to be here in Toronto. And she was first in the lift and it was, She is Maria or no? You know what I mean? But it was great to meet her and know that she’s going really well, and, you know, she’s life right now.And talk a little bit with her, it was really nice,” Alcaraz said of meeting Sharapova.
