The last twenty years have seen in the world of tennis the continuous struggle between the Big Three, those who are considered by many to be the 3 best tennis players ever. Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have achieved an extraordinary era and many have had the doubt that tennis could have a crisis after their farewell.
In recent months all this has changed with the advent of the young Iberian talent Carlos Alcaraz: the nineteen year-old from Murcia has slowly climbed the rankings and is already considered one of the best in the circuit.
Many talked about his growth and among them the former world number one in women's tennis Kim Clijsters. The Belgian former player made several statements, and she left an important message on Twitter, in which she wrote: "It is so exciting to see another Spanish teenager making his way into our sport.
It takes me back to the year 2004/2005 when Rafa started his journey. I congratulate Carlos Alcaraz and best wishes also to his coach Juan Carlos Ferrero." Alcaraz and his latest results The new number 6 in the world is absent from the tournament in Rome as he preferred to rest after the latest efforts.
The boy from Murcia played last week in Madrid where in three days he first beat Rafa Nadal, then defeated, in their first match, the world number one Novak Djokovic and subsequently he demolished the German Alexander Zverev in the final.
Carlos's numbers are there for all to see and Alcaraz said his goal is to win one of the remaining three Grand Slam events. Even the former Belgian tennis player Justine Henin said about the Spanish tennis player: "In terms of the game, Carlos Alcaraz seems to me more complete than Nadal, Federer or Djokovic.
There are many things that impressed me about Carlos Alcaraz. He is only 19 years old, but he shows a staggering maturity to say the least! I was also amazed by his ability to learn and adapt to various situations. His tennis improves day by day and it is becoming more and more difficult to stop his race."
