Novak Djokovic is a tennis player about whom we don't have to talk much. The successes in his career are truly commendable, and it is incredible how much passion and desire the Serb has been playing all these years. This was recognized by the young Carlos Alcaraz, who wants to follow in his footsteps and to achieve equally great successes in his career.

The Spaniard has emphasized many times so far how much he admires Djokovic. Alcaraz was also impressed this time with the concentration and focus that Djokovic has. “Novak Djokovic is on my mind in almost every practice.

I have to practice my best. I have to go for 100 per cent in every ball to be able to catch him. He is 100 per cent focused. I watch his practice, his movement and the way he plays and trains and it is something I want. He puts 100 per cent in every practice and game and it is something I am trying in my game”.

Alcaraz's coach reacts

Alcaraz's coach Juan Carlos Ferrero responded to criticism from fans, who believe that Alcaraz is obsessed with Djokovic. However, things are not quite like that.

Ferrero is proud of Alcaraz and his desire to become the best. Ferrero believes that there are many more quality tennis players and that it is not necessary to just beat Djokovic. “We don’t usually talk about ‘we’re going for Djokovic, we’re going to play everything thinking about that.

But it is normal that it comes to mind because when there are two of you, what you think about is fighting to be one. In the end you play against a lot of people, not just Novak. To get there you have to beat many others first”. -Ferrero said.
