Pablo Carreno Busta weighs in on Carlos Alcaraz's game

Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta thinks Carlos Alcaraz has everything what it takes to be a great player. Alcaraz, 18, has two ATP titles in his collection, he won the Next Gen ATP Finals last year, and now he is enjoying a career-high ranking of No.

19 in the world. Alcaraz is coached by Spanish tennis legend Juan Carlos Ferrero and it's evident that being guided by someone as experienced as Ferrero is benefiting the 18-year-old. "When he’s on court, he doesn’t look like a boy.

He is very mature, but of course off court he still has things to improve. [His coach] Juan Carlos [Ferrero] knows what it is to be the No. 1 in the world and as that is Carlos’ goal, he takes care of a lot of things," Carreno Busta told the ATP website.

Carreno Busta didn't play but Alcaraz helped Spain win

Alcaraz made his Davis Cup debut this weekend as he beat Romania's Marius Copil 6-4 6-3 on Friday. "I am super-happy to get my first Davis Cup win and it is an honour to represent my country.

Playing in a competition like Davis Cup helps you to grow as a person and as a player," Alcaraz said after beating Copil. “The atmosphere I played in today, I have never felt before. I’ve experienced it against me in Paris [he faced Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Hugo Gaston there in November], but never before in my favour.

“It was great to experience and feeling the support of the crowd is something special. When you play other competitions, you play for yourself. When you play Davis Cup, you play for yourself and for your country. “There’s always this small pressure that you’re representing your country and your teammates.

But at the same time, there’s motivation. You know that your team are behind you, supporting you and giving you energy”. Carreno Busta was with the team but there was no need for him to play as Alcaraz and Roberto Bautista Agut got the job done in singles.

Carreno Busta will likely be a part of the Spanish team that will participate at the the Davis Cup Finals later this year.
