Paolo Bertolucci has no doubts: "Carlos Alcaraz the heir to the great tennis stars"

Carlos Alcaraz never ceases to amaze fans and tennis enthusiasts, even if his enormous talent is no longer in question. Few, perhaps, would have bet on such a dominant performance. The Spanish tennis player gained access to the semifinals of the Roland Garros 2023 thanks to a crushing victory against the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, who surrendered with a clear score of 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (the last set finished at the tie-break, despite the fact that the Spaniard was even ahead 4-1).

The dominance of the Spaniard was a topic, but, above all, also how easily the number 4 in the world gave up left the spectators at the Philippe-Chatrier speechless. The former Italian tennis player Paolo Bertolucci was quite frank and categorical at the end of the quarterfinals in the Grand Slam competition, reserving this comment for the test of the current number one in the ATP ranking.

He wrote on Twitter: "Sooner or later you will stop making comparisons with Carlos Alcaraz. The Spaniard currently appears as the most serious candidate to inherit the scepter of the great tennis players."

Now the big challenge against Novak Djokovic

Even the commentator of the tennis matches for Sky Sport can't wait to watch the super battle scheduled for today, Friday 6 June: Alcaraz will face the Serbian champion Novak Djokovic for a spot in the final of the Paris tournament, and the defense of the ATP ranking no.1.

A highly anticipated confrontation between two different generations, open to any type of scenario. The only precedent certainly entertained the fans and not a little, given that in Madrid last year the Iberian managed to win in three sets at the end of an epic fight.

This time there will be a Grand Slam up for grabs and neither of them will want to let go to prove they are even better than their opponent.
