Carlos Alcaraz, the Spaniard youngster, is one of the most promising player in tennis and even Rafael Nadal claimed the teenager will become a future star.
The 17-year-old will face the ‘King of Clay’ Nadal at the Mutua Madrid Open on Wednesday, May 04. Therefore, the match will be extremely hard for the World No. 120.
However, Rafa claims the young boy is a prodigy and has the potential to be great in the future. Therefore, the World No.2 expects a tough challenge from the Espanyol youngster.
In a recent ATP Tour interview, Nadal expressed, “Carlos [Alcaraz] is an amazing player, today he already has an amazing level of tennis. Probably he will be one of the best players in the world soon.”
“It will be a big challenge for me and hopefully for him too (chuckling), so let’s see. I don’t know, I [will] just focus and try to be ready, to have the right preparation and to be playing well for the beginning of the tournament so then let’s see.” The 34-years-old further added.
The World No.120 made his Grand Slam debut at the Australian Open this year, where he made his way up to the second round. However, lost to Swedish Mikael Ymer with a score of 6-2, 4-6, 4-6, 6 (5)- 7 (7). After the Grand Slam, the Spaniard further showcased his potential at circuits like Miami, Mexico and Barcelona. Further, the Alcaraz was exceptional at the Andalucia Open this year. But lost to fellow countryman Jaume Munar in the semi-finals.
