Former world number one Jimmy Connorsfinally saw play Carlos Alcaraz for the first time live. It was in Indian Wells and the former American tennis player was impressed.
The eight-time Grand Slam winner shared his impressions on his Advantage Connors podcast and praised the Spanish tennis player’s behavior on court, noting that he is different from other young players: “What really stood out to me is that he is between 19 and 20 years old, and he already has the desire to be the best.”

In addition, Connors was emphatic and pointed out that if Alcaraz continues with that attitude and continues to improve with each game, it will be very difficult to stop: “In recent years, I have seen many young people on the rise, but no one has stood out so much when it comes to putting that will to give everything every time he goes out on the court like he does.”
The American legend added that despite the fact that the young Spaniard has won a Grand Slam, he is still adding new experiences to his professional career: “Although he has already won the US Open, a lot can still happen, He’s gaining experience and that’s a very positive thing.”
