Carlos Alcaraz lost the number one in the ATP world ranking after a few weeks but already has the chance to return to the top of the standings soon. His coach Juan Carlos Ferrero spoke on the matter, in an interview with Essentially Sports.
He told: “We will try to find our way. There are other great players that Carlos will have to beat if he is to win another Grand Slam. Of course, certainly Novak Djokovic is the main rival to overcome.”
Ferrero answered some interesting questions about the Big Three.
He also said: “Nadal won two Grand Slams last year and it’s an incredible result.
If he stays competitive, he won’t be in a hurry to retire. He’s playing less but if he’s still competitive when he does, why talk about retiring? We hope that Carlos can compete as much as possible with Rafa and Novak. This would make him feel better.
He regrets that he can’t compete with Federer. Me too.” Among the three, the GOAT debate continues to be in the foreground in tennis, Ferrero gave his opinion: “I think none of them would be fine without the other two. All of them have accomplished amazing things.
It is absurd to imagine all that they have done. It is an argument without a correct answer. I love them. As long as I feel motivated with a project and can reconcile it with my family, I will continue to travel. In any case, I will always try to support tennis players.
And if traveling that much isn’t an option, I know I can support Academy players without traveling a lot and that’s something I like.” Ferrero’s attention will now be focused on Carlos Alcaraz, expected from the first Master 1000 of the season in Indian Wells.
