Carlos Alcaraz put in really impressive performances in the tournament and his journey hasn’t been easy. He reached the quarterfinals, beating Mioimir Kecmanovic. He then advanced to the semifinals to beat Hubert Hurkacz, whom he defeated in straight sets, but it was won in a tie-breaker point. He then reached the final where he faced Norwegian player Casper Ruud whom he defeated in straight sets.
David Law tweeted: “The answer to the question ‘What happens when Federer and Nadal retire?’ Carlos Alcaraz”
He further said “For the Djokovic fans who inevitably take offense at this tweet, he’s not a newcomer and he’s not retiring anytime soon.”
Those were some of the fan reactions
This isn’t the first person to have high expectations for Alcaraz. Tony Nadal, Rafael Nadal’s uncle and ex-coach sees a lot of potential in him and the former world No. 1. 5 Daniel Hantuchova also believes he will be the one to win the French Open. Fans and audiences think his playing style resembles Nadal while some think it resembles him Djokovicwhile Alaraz thinks his style is closest to Federer’s.
Comparing the playing style of the big three to his, it’s no surprise that commentators like David Law are Alcaraz’s new admirers. The youngster still has a long journey and a long way to go to prove himself but his hard work is finally paying off and he’s being recognized for his efforts.
