Nicolás Almagro discussed Carlos Alcaraz‘s triumph in New York in an interview with MARCA. He stated: “Alcaraz possesses the traits of all great athletes, including the drive and tenacity of Rafael Nadal, the court-covering skills of Novak Djokovic, and the talent of Roger Federer.
He won his first US Open at the age of 19, which is an incredible accomplishment. In my opinion, what sets him apart is the composure with which he handles various situations. It is not easy to handle so much pressure at that age.
“Justine Henin also paid respect to the Spaniard: “Everyone expected him to hoist the trophy after beating Jannik Sinner in the quarterfinals. He has showed everyone that he is predestined and that he is aiming to become one of the best in history.
Despite having a wonderful tournament, Casper Ruud ultimately emerged victorious “After his victory at the US Open, which made him the youngest No. 1 in the annals of men’s tennis, Alcaraz is genuinely over the moon. Before winning in New York, the 19-year-old Spaniard won two Masters 1000 events in Miami and Madrid as well as two ATP 500 events in Rio de Janeiro and Barcelona.
Carlos’ physical endurance was unaffected by his battles with Marin Cilic, Jannik Sinner, and Frances Tiafoe, and he prevailed over Casper Ruud in the championship match. He stated: “Everything has happened so quickly that I never imagined I would get these results at the age of 19.
Being able to hold this trophy fills me with joy because I have been dreaming of it since I was a young child.”
Having already won a Grand Slam, Carlitos
A few days after Carlos Alcaraz became the youngest-ever world number one at the US Open, Eurosport had the opportunity to speak with Kiko Navarro, the phenomenon’s first coach.
Before talking calmly about the future, he recalled his first encounter with Carlito. “I don’t think it will bother him even if he spends two years without claiming a single Grand Slam. He is too passionate about tennis, in my experience, to allow himself drift or become sidetracked.
He won’t run out of objectives; he constantly has aims. But as I consider the following two years, I feel a little lightheaded. It all happened so quickly; he will have to adjust to this degree of media attention, the Spanish coach added.
