Taking on the ‘Big Three’ of world tennis, Carlos Alcaraz is leading the way
The 19-year-old Murcian has surpassed all the players he will share the court with in the near future
Among the new generation of tennis players seeking to take the top spots left behind by the ‘Big Three’ of tennis: Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz has emerged as the frontrunner.
In straight sets, the Spaniard defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime to reach the semi-finals of the Indian Wells Masters.
He is one month younger than Holger Rune, one year younger than Lorenzo Musseti, two years younger than Sinner, and three years younger than Aliassime.
Based on statistics, he has surpassed all of his rivals belonging to the new wave of tennis players seeking their place at the top.
The Spaniard advanced to the final of the Indian Wells Masters last night after defeating Jannik Sinner in the semi-finals.
Although Alcaraz missed the start of the season, specifically the Australian Open, due to an injury in his right leg, he is already qualified for the Masters Cup in Turin (November 12-19).
