Rick Macci, Carlos Alcaraz’s coach, has said that the Spaniard is “Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Andre Agassi all wrapped up in one,” and that this makes him the best player of all time. Despite only turning 19 in May, Alcaraz has already won two Masters titles this year and is currently ranked sixth in the world.
After the retirement of the Big Three, Alcaraz is widely predicted to rise to the top of the tennis world and win multiple Grand Slams. Macci, who coached Serena and Venus Williams when they were young, now claims that Alcaraz has the potential to have a bigger career than the Big Three.
“I’ve done a lot in the past two years, and ever since I saw him play, I’ve been raving about his extraordinary talent. I’ve written extensively about his skills and conducted numerous interviews with him.
As a player, he transcends his era. That’s something that needs to click with people. According to me, he is the combined qualities of Andre Agassi, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal. Unless something catastrophic happens to him, he will go down in history as the greatest player of all time “This is what Macci revealed to Tennis-Infinity.
In other words, Macci, Alcaraz was destined for this.
Alcaraz had previously won Masters tournaments in Miami and Madrid, and he aimed to make his Grand Slam breakthrough at Roland Garros. After losing in the quarterfinals of the French Open to Alexander Zverev, Alcaraz went on to lose in the round of 16 at Wimbledon to Jannik Sinner.
“Furthermore, I am aware that such boasting is ridiculous in light of the fact that the 19-year-old in question has yet to win a single Grand Slam. I noticed this trend with Sampras, as well as Federer and Nadal. Djokovic surprised me because I thought he’d come on the scene a little later, but he really does have the best game overall.
He fits the bill like a glove. When it comes to picking up a tennis racket, he is the quickest man alive. When you master this, you’ll never let your nerves keep you from taking the field. He’s got a spacey drop shot, and he’s also got serious authority and technique when he’s off the ground. Moreover, he has humility and was clearly destined for greatness, “Moreover, Macci stated.
