Liam Broady 'surprised' Carlos Alcaraz doesn't get 'vamos Rafael Nadal' shouts

Liam Broady jokingly remarked that he is surprised Carlos Alcaraz doesn't get the "vamos Rafa" shouts during his matches. At the start of his career, Andy Murray was regularly getting the "come on Tim" shouts during his Wimbledon matches.

Alcaraz grew up idolizing Rafael Nadal and now he has been labeled as Nadal 2.0. "I am surprised that Alcaraz doesn’t get vamos Rafa shouts from the crowd the same way Andy used to get come on tim shouts at wimbledon," Broady tweeted.

Nadal predicts a bright future for Alcaraz

"I think he's unstoppable in terms of his career," Nadal said.

"He has all the ingredients. He has the passion. He has the, he's humble enough to work hard. No, he's a good guy. He remembers me a lot of things than when I was 17- or 18-years-old kid. I think he has the passion. He has the talent and the physical component, which is great." Alcaraz was flattered to hear Nadal's comments about him, to say the least.

"It's pretty good," Alcaraz remarked. "I mean, when he was 18 or 19 years old he got a Grand Slam, so it's good to know that Rafa said that he sees himself in me when he was my age. But, yeah, it's quite cool." Alcaraz has been through to his maiden Masters semifinal in Indian Wells and he faces next his idol Nadal.

"It's amazing to play against Rafa," the Spaniard said.. "He's my idol since I was a kid, so it's never easy to play against him. I think it's going to be a great match. I think it's a great experience for me to meet him in Masters 1000 semifinal here at Indian Wells, but, yeah, I'm going to have fun out there and enjoy every single second of the match. It's a very special experience for me."
