Former world number three Juan Martin del Potro believes that the rivalry between the likes of Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz and Italy’s Jannik Sinner will be ‘very good’ for tennis. Both players are already regarded as two of the best young talents currently playing in the men’s singles category.
Del Potro was recently quoted in a report where he praised Alcaraz’s ‘freshness’ and further went on to state that his rivalry with Sinner will be very good for tennis.
“I love seeing Alcaraz because he has a freshness and naturalness when walking on the court that makes him look like a 30-year-old guy who has been on the circuit for 10 years and is super young,” he said. “He is going to be very good for tennis, that face-to-face against Sinner. A rivalry that tennis constantly had is going to happen. First it was Agassi-Sampras, then Roger-Rafa, then Novak. And now it will be the two of them.”
Both players are currently taking part in the Madrid Open and have already booked their place in the quarterfinal. The two-time Grand Slam winner booked his place in the last-eight after beating Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3, 6-7, 7-6. On the other hand, Sinner cemented his place in the quarterfinal after beating Karen Khachanov in the round of 16 with a score of 5-7, 6-3, 6-3.
