“Nobody was as strong as Carlos Alcaraz at 19,” told ex star


In the latest edition of the podcast hosted by Craig Shapiro, former ATP number 6 Nicolas Lapentti analyzed in detail the prospects of Carlos Alcaraz.

Lapentti explained: “We have all seen what Carlos Alcaraz is capable of. He left everyone speechless in 2022 and has many years ahead of him. The big question is whether he will be able to be as constant as the Big 3.

A lot will depend on his physical condition Will he be able to stay healthy for the next 15-18 years? It’s impossible to give an answer now. Will he be able to stay mentally sound for the next 15 years? He has to accomplish a titanic feat, but we’ll see. about ten years old. Alcaraz has everything to make history, that’s for sure. No one has ever played so well at 19.”

In the latest edition of ATP Tennis Radio, Alex Molcan reflected on the incredible rise of Alcaraz in 2022: “Carlos Alcaraz plays at a crazy speed, it’s really incredible. It’s hard to contain him when he’s hit. He’s playing insanely aggressive in this first glimpse of his career. He bursts with energy from every pore, runs, catches everything and is able to shoot winners from every area of the pitch. Novak Djokovic also has extraordinary mobility, but they are two different players.”

Alcaraz is ready for the new season

Carlos Alcaraz will be one of the most anticipated players when the 2023 Australian Open kicks off. The 19-year-old Spaniard wowed everyone in 2022, clinching the US Open and becoming the youngest No. 1 in men’s tennis history.

As if that weren’t enough, the Murciano also won two Masters 1000 (Miami and Madrid) and as many ATP 500 (Rio and Barcelona). Juan Carlos Ferrero’s protégé embellished his season by beating two sacred monsters in Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic at the Mutua Madrid Open, further testimony to his enormous potential.

Some physical problems prevented Carlos from expressing himself at his best in the last part of the season, having forced him to miss the ATP Finals in Turin and the Davis Cup finals in Malaga. The Spaniard is working hard to get back in shape and will not participate in any official tournaments before the Australian Open.
