Italy has been desperately looking for a tennis player Messi for more than four decades. The story of Gianluigi Quincy is sadly well-known, when expectations are so high. Janik is a sinner, Able to push himself to No. 9 in the ATP rankings at the age of 20. However, it is undeniable that the last few weeks must be considered sacred World Tennis MessiahOr Carlos Alcaraz.
Two years younger than Sinar (Spanish born 2003, Italian 2001), Today the Iberians are higher than our standard bearers. Not at all. Towards the end of 2021 the Paris-Barিরa Masters 1000 was predicted somewhat earlier, when Mourinho won the straight fight 7-6 (1), 7-5. In fact, the two had already faced each other in a challenger in Alicante in 2019: even at the time, 16-year-old Alcaraz had won three sets on the ground.
And in just a few weeks, the Spaniards have made great strides. He is a complete player, apparently without any weaknesses. He is deadly in both forehand and backhand, fascinated by his perseverance from the baseline, he is good at changing the game, he knows how to short ball with precision and naturalness and even in the net he appears at ease. Achilles Hill was represented by the service a few months ago, but the vacancy was quickly filled. Maybe something is still missing on the defensive stage, where Alcaraz is not Nadal (yet …), but we bet he will improve.
The big difference with the sinner? Some of the basic talents execute hits. The Iberians can rely on a skill, a ‘touch’ that the Italians do not have: there is little to go near it. South Tyrolian is very tough on both the net and the short ball, we would almost dare to say that sometimes he seems to be denied. In other words, he tries, there is no lack of goodwill. He’s working on it, in some ways he’s even improved. Yet for him the specific injury will never be natural, but will be built. It must be said that Nadal and Djokovic themselves were not monsters at the beginning of their careers in the flying game: they have improved over time, as Cinar could do. It will take years and patience, but it is undeniable that Alcarez started the first two steps, precisely because it is already complete with all the basics.
And what about the physical aspect? The Spaniard, in the case of his compatriot Rafael Nadal, has focused a lot on explosives: in the winter, at intervals of a few weeks, Has gone through a profound physical transformation, gaining incredible muscle mass for a boy just over 18 years old. Another mystery about the almost 19-year-old is resistance (he will perform them on May 5): he has already shown that he can handle five sets and many close matches very well. Moreover, Another big difference with the genetic cinerea, Carlos Alcaraz, for the time being, is that he never had to deal with physical problems.. In this case, by contrast, The Italian looks much more fragile and fragile: The blister on his right foot that forced him to retire to Miami is the latest episode in a long list.
In conclusion: At present Alcaraz is not only superior to Sinar, but to virtually all tennis players on the circuit. Today the Spaniard will only start with a dilemma in the presence of compatriots Rafael Nadal and Serbian Novak Djokovic, although he may already be thinking of both of them now (and not a little …). Against everyone else, including the Russian Daniel Medvedev, the Iberians will start at least on equal footing. This means that it should already be considered a top 5 In PectorOne goal is that, at this rate, it is easy to predict that he will arrive by the end of 2022. Alcaraz is a complete player on all surfaces (on the hard court, at the same age, Nadal was not so strong) and can win a Grand Slam already this season: maybe Roland Garros (where Manakor’s compatriot has to lose) or Wimbledon (still to be discovered on the grass) , But does not lack the weapons to do well) probably the US Open. He is the tennis player who seems to be able to follow the exploits of Federer, Djokovic and Nadal., There is no opponent of the same level at the moment. The Italians hope that one of them could be Janik Sinar. Maybe. It’s hard to believe today, but life has taken us by surprise …
