Boris Becker revealed who is considered Novak Djokovic's true heir. The US Open 2023 is now less and less missing and there is great anticipation for the last Grand Slam tournament of the year. Obviously the most awaited are Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz, also protagonists in the last ATP Masters 1000 in Cincinnati but they are not the only ones.
From Daniil Medvedev to Jannik Sinner. But also a very interesting troop of outsiders. Former tennis champion Boris Becker spoke to Eurosport and discussed many topics in view of the Flushing Meadows tournament. He explained: "The final in Cincinnati? Those are the challenges that make your heart beat faster and the hearts of the fans beat faster.
On the one hand, the best of all time, Novak Djokovic, and on the other Carlos Alcaraz, the number one in the world and the best of the new generation. It doesn't get any better and the challenge in Cincinnati was just fabulous." Not only this, because Becker also praised the work of their respective coaches and revealed: "I really liked Juan Carlos Ferrero's performance in Cincinnati, after each point he gave important advice to his player.
During the final Ferrero was the answer to the question that the public always asks about the role of the coach and it really impressed me. Ivanisevic also did well and the two athletes left everything on the court."

Becker also talked about Jannik Sinner, fresh from victory in the ATP Masters 1000 in Toronto.
In this regard, the German commented: "Winning an ATP Masters 1000 tournament is a significant event, an important result that gives confidence, especially in the case of Sinner. For years he has been considered Novak Djokovic's heir and he has the necessary confidence and the fitness to do well.
He's the first favorite after those two forwards." Finally, good words also for Alexander Zverev: "He has found his level on concrete and the hope of the Germans is that he can show it off in New York too. He has found his confidence and can now create problems for anyone."
