"I want to face Novak Djokovic" - Carlos Alcaraz keen on facing the No.1 in Monte-Carlo

Carlos Alcaraz has said he wants a first meet meeting with Novak Djokovic in the quarter-finals of the Monte Carlo Masters after they were placed in the same side of the draw.

The 18-year-old Spaniard won the Miami Masters in March and has drawn comparisons with Rafael Nadal after exploding onto the tour. The future superstar is yet to face the current world's best in Djokovic, but the two could now be set for a meeting this week. And Alcaraz is not shying away from the challenge and wants to test his nerves against the Serbian.

He said:

"I hope to face Djokovic in the quarter-finals. Sometimes it's difficult but I am trying to make it easy. The first time of everything to do my best and trying to manage the nerves of the first time well."

He further said:

"I don't want to be in a rush. I focus on the first round. Looking for the first round first but it would be a great match against the number one of the world. It's amazing for me. But hope to play well in the first match and hope to meet him in the quarter-finals."
