Alcaraz 'Going To Be Nearly Impossible To Beat' When He Realizes One Thing Says Wilander

by Zachary Wimer

Carlos Alcaraz can be 'nearly impossible to beat' according to former ATP world no. 1, Mats Wilander, who sees his incredible potential.

Alcaraz is already one of the best players in the world as he'll look to win his third Grand Slam trophy on Sunday at the 2024 Roland Garros. The Spaniard is only 21 years old, so he's far from his peak, and that's scary for his opponents.

If he's this good right now, then how good will he be at his peak? That's a good question, but it is very hard to answer. Wilander is convinced that he can be near unbeatable at his peak, which could be true.

At moments, he's near unbeatable right now, and he's not even close to his peak. According to Wilander, who spoke to Eurosport, the key to winning is realizing that he doesn't have to play flashy.

Alcaraz has an affinity for playing flashy and big, but sometimes, it's about playing precise to win. Novak Djokovic perfected that, and if Alcaraz does something similar, then he can be quite unbeatable.

"Once he realises that he has to play like this in certain matches - less dropshots, less fancy - he’s going to be nearly impossible to beat because he’s great when he’s aggressive and he’s great when he defends."

Tennis can be simple, and Alcaraz possesses all the skills needed to become an impossible player - like the likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer. In fact, the only thing many worry about with him is his health because he's had a lot of small injuries, but when it comes to talent, Wilander doesn't doubt that.

"Today, he showed that he’s going to be as good as Roger, Rafa, and Novak at defence. Maybe not quite yet, but he will learn and he’s quick enough to do that."
