Former world No. 1 Bjorn Borg believes Carlos Alcaraz can be the king of the rankings for a very long time.
Borg believes there are no holes in Alcaraz’s game and if he can stay fit, the Spaniard could dominate the game for years to come.
11-time Grand Slam champion Alcaraz’s Madrid Open run looks like a warning.
“After this week he will be No. 1 in the world, and I think he will stay there for many years,” Borg said. Eurosport
“I like the way he plays, the way he moves, the whole game. There are no weaknesses.
“It was a semi-final today, I think he has a good chance to win the final. But to watch this guy play is incredible, I’m so impressed.”
Alcaraz sets his sights on winning the 2023 French Open for his second Grand Slam title.
He has lofty goals but has managed to prove his mettle with a title.
Speaking after winning the Barcelona Open, Alcaraz said: “I’m a very ambitious kid and I always want more.
“I want to be better to win trophies like Barcelona. We are never satisfied. I surround myself with ambitious people who are not satisfied with anything.
“Roland Garros is an obvious short-term goal and I want to win it. But now Madrid and Rome are coming.
“I’m going to Madrid to try to win. Not winning is not a failure because it depends on my performance and the way I played.
Former WTA No. 1 Chris Evert also feels Alcaraz doesn’t show any obvious weaknesses.
“I don’t know how he can improve anymore,” Evert told Eurosport.
“The beauty of the game is that unless they’re having a bad day, there’s no weakness for any opponent to have a chance.
“There have been other great players in the past, they’ve been brilliant, but you always feel like there’s a weakness in their game or something they can improve on and bring out. There is no other player who can do the two aspects as well as Carlos, defensively and offensively.
“I think he’s the best player on the ATP Tour so far. He also has an element of his mind, which is self-confidence – he thinks that he must win any game he plays, and every time he hits the ball, he has great passion and joy. He is very creative and adapts well.”
