In the final of the BNP Paribas Open, player at Indian Wells, Daniil Medvedev will face the main exponent of the Next Gen Carlos Alcaraz, Grand Slam champion at the US Open and former world number one just like the Russian tennis player.
In the press conference, however, the Russian tennis player also wanted to praise another player of the young generation of tennis players, opponent of the Spaniard in the semifinal of the Californian Masters 1000, Jannik Sinner.
The Russian tennis player wanted to explained: "Jannik is also an extraordinary player. He maybe even sometimes close to the level of Carlos. This is what we have seen in their matches. But he definitely lacks consistency because he's not in the top 10 yet and he's playing really great.
This is what he is doing now. One title, 500 final, now semi final here. He is also a player who will stay up there for a long, long time. We had an amazing final in Rotterdam. I feel like it was a high-level match."
Still praise for Alcaraz
Praise to Sinner as praise again to Alcaraz, the player who is breaking every record and who will be his opponent in the Indian Wells final.
He told: "I would say, to be honest, I like tennis more than him. We all have great skills, we all some of us can serve better, some of us are better at net, some of us have better forehand and backhand. When he was 17 and I looked at him and I was like wow, this kid, he's cool, but you never know, sometimes the kid hits hard and then he does a lot of unforced stuff.
Then in one year he became number 1 in the world and beat opponents like Rafa and Novak at 18 one after the other on clay, it was fantastic. So he has incredible skills." We recall if Medvedev should win the challenge against Alcaraz, he will come back number one of the ATP ranking.
