“The level that Carlos Alcaraz showed in New York was…” says Star

The new generations of tennis are evolving so quickly that, in a short time, they are radically changing the way this sport is understood. This is more or less how Dominic Thiem is feeling as he continues his recovery from the long ordeal that kept him in the pits for more than a year.

In this vein, the Austrian (who was eliminated by Cilic in Tel Aviv and will now take part in his home tournament in Vienna) praised young stars such as Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and Frances Tiafoe, who he believes have taken the sport of tennis to a higher level : “Players like Alcaraz, Sinner or Tiafoe have changed tennis.

They play very fast and have taken the sport to a new level,” Thiem told Der Standard, who then launched a provocation citing the ‘Big Three’ Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic: “Compared to them, they are ‘Big Three’ Big’ were almost defensive or cautious.

This change is definitely affecting the other players who will have to change their game plan a bit every time they play against them.

The Italian tennis player is believed to be one of the favorites along with Carlos Alcaraz to take on the glorious legacy of the ‘Big Three’, the three athletes who have made sporting history in recent times. Sinner’s 2022 has had its ups and downs, but now the Italian No. 1 wants to confirm himself in the Sofia tournament, clearly his favorite tournament where he has won two consecutive editions.

Jannik has played a flawless tournament so far and reached the semi-finals of the tournament. The two most important fences on his way are now finished and the Dane Holger Rune awaits him in the penultimate act. At the press conference, Jannik responded on many topics, from Roger Federer’s retirement to Italy’s Davis Cup chances.

These are his words: “Roger Federer’s retirement? He’s a tennis player that I’ve never met. I feel like he’s retired from tennis and that’s something I’m not just thinking about.”

Badosa on Carlos Alcaraz

Carlos Alcaraz and Paula Badosa get along wonderfully.

During an interview with El Larguero, the WTA ranking 3rd player was full of praise for her compatriot, winner of the US Open on September 11th. She insisted on one aspect of the personality of the youngest world No. 1 in history.

“The level he showed in New York was incredible; the way he moved, the way he released his punches. I think he can be number one in the world for many years almost without realizing it. What surprises me the most about him is his modesty,” said the Spaniard.
