French tennis players Corentin Moutet and Quentin Halys defended the current world number two Carlos Alcaraz after he was criticised by former rugby player Vincent Moscato.
The 20-year-old is often regarded as one of the most high-profile players currently playing in the men’s singles category, along with Italy’s Jannik Sinner.
Alcaraz has struggled with a forearm injury that ruled him out of the Monte-Carlo Masters, Barcelona Open, and Rome Masters. He recently took part in the Madrid Open, but his journey came to an end when he lost in the quarterfinal to Russia’s Andrey Rublev with a score of 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
After the match, Alcaraz, during the press conference, admitted that he felt forearm pain once again during the match, which prevented him from giving his all to a tough opponent.
In a show called Super Moscato Show, Moscato criticised the two-time Grand Slam winner and called him a ‘crumbling candy cane’.
“We’re not going to get bored, it’s in the old pots that we make the good soups, so I think that Djoko is the thing and that with all the injured people, I’m putting a post on Djokovic,” he said. “Poor Alcaraz is a crumbling candy cane. His forearm hurts, it looks like a 78-year-old guy’s game. At 20, your arm doesn’t hurt a lot.

“Alcaraz, do you see him as Nadal’s successor? Listen to me, I’ll eat a rat if one day he’s a successor. He will win three Grand Slams, no more. He is the successor of Henri Leconte.”
Moutet immediately responded to such criticism on the social media platform X—previously known as Twitter—writing: “We give too much of a voice to people without any high-level knowledge. Sitting in their seats and being paid to say anything. Alala.” Halys, on the other hand, decided to respond with fewer words by writing: “RIDICULOUS GROTESQUE NULL PATHETIC.”
