Exactly one day after the 1000th career match won against Alexei Popyrin, Andy Murray trained with Carlos Alcaraz and, at the press conference, he talked about the new generation, including the new world number 1 Jannik Sinner in the discussion, making a comparison with the Big 3 Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. The Scot was then forced to withdraw from the Queen's Club Championships due to yet another injury.

"Yes, I was really excited to train with him, because I love watching him play. He is definitely one of my favorite tennis players to watch. Obviously he is one of the best in the world, so I was really excited for training, also to understand what my level is and how he is playing.

It's interesting for me, having played against Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, to have the opportunity to train with tennis players like Jannik Sinner - I trained with him before the Australian Open - and Alcaraz. It's nice to have the chance to play with the new generation and see what they do better, worse or otherwise different than the guys I've faced throughout my career. I had fun," he explained.

Murray is one of the few tennis players who, between one Slam and another, managed to put Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal in difficulty in the golden age of tennis. It is no coincidence that for several years there has been talk of Fab 4, even Fab 5, when Stan Wawrinka achieved sensational success at Roland Garros 2015. The Scotsman had to deal with a serious hip problem at the best moment of his career. A problem that has severely limited him, preventing him from exploring his full potential in a period of time in which he could have added more Majors than him to his collection.
