Former Croatian tennis star Goran Ivanisevic has stated that he will still put his money on the current world number one Novak Djokovic ahead of ‘unbelievable players’ like Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz and Italy’s Jannik Sinner.
Both Alcaraz and Sinner are often regarded as the two best players in the younger generation currently playing in the men’s singles category. Ivanisevic, who worked with Djokovic as a coach for six years, was recently quoted in a report where he heaped praise on both youngsters and called them ‘unbelievable’ but stated that he will still put his money on Serbia’s tennis star ahead of them if he ‘shows up’.
"They (Alcaraz and Sinner) are unbelievable tennis players,” he said. “At the moment I have to say Sinner is the hottest tennis player in the world. He won 25 matches out of 26. He's just unbelievable. He's just playing great. Although, it's interesting, they're different kind of players. They're both very beautiful to watch. These two guys, they're going to have a lot of great matches. But if Novak shows up, I'll always put my money on Novak."
"You saw in Australia this year he was not kind of there and you cannot show up like that against Sinner. Sinner was too good. But in Wimbledon final last year, one or two points, could be a different match. But in the end I have to say Carlos played amazing.
