Expert: “Carlos Alcaraz is a brilliant striker and a great defender.”

Andrey Rublev is nearing his Finals aim. The Russian tennis star hopes to accomplish the same feat as last year and visit Turin once more. Three positions still need to be filled after five passes were torn. Right now, Russia’s number two is sixth, only behind fellow countryman Daniil Medvedev, who is now ranked first.

The path to Turin has already been cleared from the Gijon final; as a result of his 6-4, 6-4 victory over Dominic Thiem in the semifinal, he advances to the last round of the Spanish event, where he will take on American Korda.

“I have to go out and give it everything tomorrow. Nothing occurs if I lose; if I win, everything is ideal. In the post-semifinal press conference, Sebastian said of his next and final opponent, “Sebastian is young and playing really well. I am playing very well this week.”

The final match is tomorrow, and I expect to play well there as well. The Russian was in Spain and chatted with Marca on a variety of subjects, but he focused primarily on Carlos Alcaraz‘s achievements and Roger Federer‘s retirement.

In an interview with a Spanish publication, Rublev discussed the factors that led to the 19-year-old Carlos Alcaraz‘s victory at the US Open and drew comparisons to himself. Him said: “I was not shocked by his achievement because I watched the evolution of he.

When he was perhaps 14 or 15, he created a strong team around him at the ideal time. He and Juan Carlos Ferrero have always shared a unique connection, just as I have with Fernando (Vicente). Carlos is considerably sharper than I am mentally. A reflection on the top player in the world as well as Roger Federer‘s impending retirement after playing his final doubles match with Rafael Nadal in the Laver Cup.

Alcaraz achieved a Grand Slam victory.

The only French player to defeat Carlos Alcaraz is Hugo Gaston. He famously won seven games in a row to end the second set at Bercy in November 2021, electrifying the Parisian audience (6-4, 7-5).

The youngest world number one in history’s game was examined by Toulouse coach Marc Barbier for Tennis Majors. There is no need to compare because Carlos is just Carlos. He excels as both an attacker and a defense.

It demonstrates every move a tennis player can do nowadays. He is a strong baseline defender who upholds Spanish ideals, but he also has a wide range of offensive possibilities, displays a lot of creativity, and has a very good hand.

He represents the archetype of the unrestricted player. Technically speaking, he doesn’t, according to the French coach.
