According to Rick Macci, Carlos Alcaraz is “Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Andre Agassi all rolled into one,” making him the future greatest player of all time. As of this writing, Alcaraz, who turned 19 in May, is ranked sixth in the world and has won two Masters titles this year.
After the retirement of the Big Three, Alcaraz will be given every opportunity to become the sport’s next big star and dominate the tennis world. Former coach of Serena and Venus Williams in their youth, Macci, thinks Alcaraz has a shot at surpassing the Big Three in terms of fame and fortune.
Even two years ago, when I first saw him play, I began raving about his extraordinary talent. I’ve written extensively about his skills and conducted numerous interviews with him.
He is a player for the ages. It’s crucial that folks get it. A combination of Andre Agassi, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal, in my opinion. I know he looks crazy, but he’s going to be the greatest player of all time if there are no injuries, Macci told Tennis-Infinity.
Following his success at the Masters tournaments in Miami and Madrid, Alcaraz targeted the French Open as the venue for his first Grand Slam victory. After losing to Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinals of the French Open, Alcaraz went on to lose to Jannik Sinner in the round of 16 at Wimbledon.
I am fully aware that it is absurd to make such claims about a player who has just turned 19 and has yet to win a Grand Slam title. I noticed it in Sampras, Federer, and Nadal. I didn’t expect it from Djokovic because he arrived on the scene a little later, but he clearly has a more well-rounded repertoire of shots.
That’s what he was destined to do all along. With a tennis racket in his hand, he can cover ground faster than anyone else.
In this clip, Moya discusses Nadal.
Rafael Nadal‘s coach Carlos Moya recently gave an interview to Eurosport Spain, where he avoided discussing any of his pupil’s recent accomplishments, including his historic 14th coronation at Roland-Garros, a possible calendar Grand Slam, and the Majorcan’s impending paternity.
Hopefully, the Spanish coach’s words will bring relief to a lot of people. It’s true that people in my generation typically retired between the ages of 30 and 32 to start a family, and I can attest to the fact that very few people ever traveled with their children. These days, it’s common for families to take the kids along on vacation.
Rather than being the deciding factor in his decision to retire, I believe this query will serve as an added incentive for him to continue working. He’s devoted to his family and adores his kids, so his absence will be keenly felt at first.
