Carlos Alcaraz won his first Wimbledon, replacing 7-time champion Novak Djokovic on the throne. The Spaniard once again reaffirmed his strength, despite being just 20 years old. The Serbian hadn't lost on Center Court for over 10 years.
His defeat caused a lot of talk among the insiders, who for months had been talking about a possible Calendar Grand Slam. Boris Becker talked about the final on the courts of the All England Club, expressing his sensational thoughts He explained: "For me this tournament is a changing of the guard.
I really see it as a final that will go down in tennis history, one of those matches that will still be talked about ten years later. Sportingly, this was the day Alcaraz came of age, and that's why we've seen so much praise in the last few hours.
Why? Because he did it against whoever did it, one of the most successful tennis players of all time, he wasn't just anyone."
Becker onk Djokovic and Nadal: "They won't win major titles again"
Becker explained: "It is true that last year he had already won the US Open against Casper Ruud in the final, even becoming n.
1 in the world at the time, even though before the tournament he had long since proven to be the best. But at the end of the day, what you have to do is prove those things in a Grand Slam final against the best, and that's Djokovic, and he proved it.
Rafa and Novak will probably never win these kinds of titles again. With Roger Federer, we are talking about three legendary players who have won 20 or more Grand Slam trophies. In my time, Pete Sampras did the impossible by hitting 14 Grand Slams, but now there are three players who have won more than 20, as well as secured enormous popularity around the world.
Who can take the scepter of the world? Well, I think we all think of the same name and have already mentioned it several times. Alcaraz conquered him, I think the whole world is grateful to have seen such a young player from Spain, so nice, fresh and with such an innocent look. He's a player who does everything as if he's the most natural thing in the world."
