Macci: "Carlos Alcaraz better than the Big 3 at their age"

Carlos Alcaraz became the third youngest player in history to win amìn ATP Masters 1000 tournament. The Spanish talent won the Miami Open by beating Casper Ruud in the final and moved within a few points of the top ten.

The Spanish young star has shown that he can beat the best players on the Tour despite his young age and his impression is that he will soon have a say in Grand Slam tournaments as well. Rick Macci, former coach of Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova and Andy Roddick, focused on Alcaraz’s potential in the latest video published on his YouTube channel.

Macci: "Carlos Alcaraz can become the best"

Macci explained: "I have seen many players, some with a lot of potential. I saw Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic when they were younger, but in the last 30 years I haven't seen anyone like Alcaraz."

H ethen added: "He has it all. First, the movement. He moves naturally on the pitch. His speed is insane. He has a slightly different genetics and generates power through his lower body. He is a unique athlete. You can see a lot of Rafa in him, in his mentality.

He has the patience and, above all, he is not afraid. I've never seen anyone at the age of 18 go from defense to attack in the blink of an eye. His ability to hit winners in a complicated situation is amazing. He can become the greatest player of all time.

In general, the game of him is very mature. He intimidates you because of his speed. The boy was born to accomplish great things. He plays with his heart and loves competition. I've never seen this kind of talent, he's the best he's seen in the last 25 years."

Carlos Alcaraz will participate this week in the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo and could meet Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals, but the Serb was defeated in his first match.
