“Sky is the limit for both these guys”: Serena Williams ex-coach backs Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner to dominate men’s tennis in years to come

Former world number one Serena Williams’ ex-coach Rick Macci believes that Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz and Italy’s Jannik Sinner will form the ‘Big 2’ in the coming years. Both players are regarded as two of the best players currently playing in the men’s singles category.
Alcaraz has already won the Grand Slam two times whereas Sinner won the first Grand Slam of this year — the Australian Open — after beating Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in the final in a five-set thriller with a score of 3-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3. Macci was recently quoted in a report where he backed both players to dominate men’s tennis in the coming years and also suggested that the ‘sky is the limit’ for them.
"I think Sinner and Alcaraz and there will be a few more that will enter the mix, but I can see them dominating tennis for a long time,” he said. “It will be the big two, then someone will enter the mix for sure. They (Alcaraz and Sinner) now believe and if you believe you will achieve and I definitely think both of them will be double figure grand slam winners. So the sky is the limit for both these guys and what's great about it, they're going to keep pushing each other and that's how you get better because competition makes you a better competitor."
