"We were saying similar things about Medvedev once upon a time": Kyrgios believes Alcaraz won't be unbeatable when flaws are exposed

Nick Kyrgios has dismissed claims that Carlos Alcaraz is unbeatable using the example of Daniil Medvedev as a player who was thought of as unbeatable in the past.

Carlos Alcaraz is the top player in the world right now holding the number one rank and being widely considered the most likely player to win Roland Garros. His play at the event certainly didn't do anything to dispel those claims as he's been utterly spectacular.

The win over Tsitsipas was pretty much flawless and when he plays like that he looks quite unbeatable. He's been so good that he's favoured against Djokovic, quite a bit according to odds in various sportsbooks- Even so, Nick Kyrgios doesn't really think that Alcaraz is unbeatable.

Exposing flaws

According to Kyrgios, such words were thrown around for Medvedev and then he proved to be quite beatable if you play a certain way. He thinks that's the case with Alcaraz as well. While the Spaniard looks quite unbeatable at the moment, that will change when somebody exposes all of his flaws in a tennis match and then the story will shift.

He responded to a question by tennis analyst and former player Mark Petchey who asked fans what sort of weakness they see in Alcaraz's game implying that he doesn't see any.

"We were saying similar things about Medvedev once upon a time. Not saying a see one, I’m just saying, until someone exposes them, they look unplayable."

Alcaraz himself admitted recently that he thinks of himself as a complete player with no real weaknesses so he clearly doesn't lack any confidence. However his loss to a player ranked outside of the top 100 in Fabian Maroszan recently in Rome, proved that Alcaraz truly is beatable though that one might have been a fluke more than genuine beating.
