Carlos Alcaraz reminds Serena Williams’ former coach of Andre Agassi and Novak Djokovic.
Rick Macci, Carlos Alcaraz‘s coach, referred to the 19-year-old Spaniard as “a generational talent” because of the way his forehand reminds him of Andre Agassi and Novak Djokovic. Famous tennis instructor Macci believes Alcaraz is “going to transcend how tennis coaches teach kids the game.” Macci famously coached Serena and Venus Williams as young girls. Alcaraz, who is only 19 years old, has three Masters titles, a Grand Slam victory, and a No. 1 ranking.
Alcaraz is demonstrating that a player who frequently uses drop shots may achieve significant success. He is already a very complete player. “I’ve made some videos, and I saw this around three years ago. He is a player of a generation, and he will change even the way people teach the game.
Macci told Tennis-Infinity, “It’s almost like it’s alright to do the drop shot more now.
Macci detects some Agassi and Djokovic at Alcaraz.
Despite having a huge and powerful game, Alcaraz‘s forehand and backhand shots still seem excellent technically.
“He’s been incredibly well taught. He certainly possesses an ATP forehand, and his technique is quite good. There isn’t a minor issue, like I could find with a few other players, possibly in the Top 20 worldwide. Therefore, the forehand is excellent technically from a scientific perspective, and the backhand is likewise extremely technically sound; nothing complicated happens there.
Therefore, he already has the forehand and backhand of Agassi or Djokovic in the two key areas, according to Macci. A youngster is winning Grand Slams in men’s tennis for the first time in twenty years.
As a result of his early success, Alcaraz has been dubbed “the new Rafael Nadal.” Alcaraz‘s trainer Juan Carlos Ferrero recently said that the 19-year-old used to feel a great deal of pressure from the new Nadal moniker. Alcaraz and his crew were successful because they were able to set that aside.
