Former Roger Federer's coach: "Carlos Alcaraz has everytthing to win many Slams"

Carlos Alcaraz won his second Grand Slam title, beating Novak Djokovic, holder of the last four trophies of the All England Club, in the Wimbledon final. The first success in London, after the one at Queen's of the previous two weeks in the same city, was a surprise for many: on the surface that was more distant from him, he won the most important title.

Severin Lüthi, Roger Federer's historic coach, also commented on this triumph. He explained to Blick: "I have to admit I was traveling with my wife around Italy when it was the Wimbledon final. I didn't get to see the whole match.

But I understand the excitement around Carlos. I like watching him play, he plays in many different ways. I love his energy. He still has ups and downs in his rounds of service, but it is clear that he is a very complete player and that he has what it takes to win many Grand Slams.

However, we don't know what might happen in two years."

Many are predicting Carlos Alcaraz's dominance within the circuit for the next few years. In recent years he has already shattered the dreams of many of his opponents and it is easy to be pushed towards certain predictions, especially by comparing his successes to those of the Big 3.

Luthi himself explains that launching into conjectures or predictions is not easy: for him, fatal were Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. He told: "Most of the predictions I've made in my life have been wrong.

When Pete Sampras won 14 Grand Slam titles, I vividly remember saying that no one would ever do such a thing. Now we already have three guys who have 20 Grand Slam titles or more, and it hasn't exactly been 250 years since I made that prediction."
