John McEnroe: "Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz are extraordinary"

Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz are extraordinary according to John McEnroe. The former American tennis player gave an interview to Tennis Magazin in which he praised the two young talents of the circuit, who are having a great season.

For the Spaniard, four trophies have already been won in six finals played. Two Masters 1000, on two different surfaces, c and two 500s in this 2022. Only two finals lost and both at the hands of two Italians: in Hamburg defeated by Lorenzo Musetti.

In Umag, in the Croatia Open, it was Sinner himself who triumphed in the last act against the Spanish number two. McEnroe had great words about both players: "Sinner is a good guy, even if he still has to learn a few things, especially he has to improve at the net.

He is a great player who has grown over time, but he is always determined to improve further." For the South Tyrolean it was also a difficult year for the change of coach, passing from Riccardo Piatti to the Vagnozzi, Cahill duo; this decision, according to the Grand Slam champion, could lead him to great successes.

he said also: "I was surprised that he made this choice, I don't know what exactly happened. I wish Jannik the best, I'm sure he will continue to improve and win some Grand Slams in the future."

Words for Carlos Alcaraz from John McEnroe. In the case of the Spaniard, winner of four seasonal titles, both on hard and clay courts, the former tennis player first launches into a comparison with the Big 3, then praises one particular characteristic.

"Alcaraz is fantastic: tennis players like him only appear every ten years. He is like Rafa, Novak or Roger. I am not saying that he will be at their height, but what he offers on the pitch is extraordinary, especially for how he moves on the pitch, no one moves like him. He also releases a great energy, he is a great stimulus for tennis, a figure like him was needed in this sport."
