Eurosport expert Mats Wilander commented on the semi-final duel between Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic. The Spaniard's convincing victory against Stefanos Tsitsipas surprised everyone, and many believe that Alcaraz will win against the Serb.
Wilander is delighted with what Alcaraz is doing at the moment. His statements, self-confidence, and self-belief are truly impressive. "Carlos Alcaraz has lit the professional tennis world on fire. People are talking about him more and more.
Tactically he has been incredible without losing his identity on the tennis court," -Wilander said, as quoted by eurosport.com
"Sitting watching him live is incredible. He comes from nowhere and smacks the forehand so hard that it’s nearly a lack of respect for the game itself.
He’s OK with people routing for the other guy as we all just want to see more of Carlitos.
I actually can’t believe he said his confidence is very high, that’s incredible. He is playing Novak Djokovic next and is coming out with these words, it’s different playing someone you’ve beaten a few times before but they haven’t played that many times.
It’s just incredible.
He is superhuman, there is hope for mankind when you see an athlete like Carlos Alcaraz."
Mats Wilander: Djokovic will have a huge support
Wilander emphasized that Djokovic will have huge support in this match.
Maybe this will motivate the Spaniard even more to show his game. “Well, I mean, they're going to be behind Novak Djokovic in the beginning, I think,” -he said.
“Because I think everybody has to sense that there's a problem here for Novak Djokovic each.
Carlos is playing so well, so I have a feeling that they think that Novak is the one that's going to have to put up a fight to be honest. And Novak will be able to do that." Novak will do his best, we have no doubt about that.
