Carlos Alcaraz surprised already last year, with his domination in the Next Gen ATP Finals, conquered in Milan last November., but this season he his showing how he could be the new ruler of the ATP Tour. From the beginning o the season he won two ATP 500s on clay-courts, Rio de Janeiro and Barcelona, and two ATP Masters 1000, one on hard-courts in Miami and another on clay in Madrid.
It was in the Spanish capital that the number six in the world made history: he is the only player to have won, in the same clay tournament, against Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. The Spanish number one has conquered everyone, including former tennis players.
Gabriela Sabatini: "Carlos Alcaraz is incredible"
In an interview with Radio Miter, Gabriela Sabatini was asked which player she was most impressed with this year. Gabriela explaiend: "Among men I don't say anything new: Carlos Alcaraz.
He is incredible. What surprises me most is his head, his personality, he is very positive, he goes on, he is very beautiful to watch, regardless of how athletic he is and the game he has." The same question is asked about the women's circuit, but the answer is different from what awaits us, looking at the titles and rankings of this start of the season: "I really like Ons Jabeur.
love how she plays, she has a very nice game, very talented, a hand she can do anything with." Although the choice fell on the Tunisian, there is no lack of praise for the world number one: "I also like her malice about Iga Swiatek, number 1."
