Karen Khachanov is clear about Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz

During an interview with the microphones of the French daily "L'Equipe", Russian tennis player Karen Khachanov was unabashed about the current moment in world tennis. More specifically, the fresh winner of the Doha ATP 500 è dwelt on the new generation of players, Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz above all, and the comparison with the "Big Four" of the past (Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and Murray).

Karen Khachanov: "The various Sinner and Alcaraz I do not see them at the same level as the Big 4"

"Before, the 'Big Four' with Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray, were clearly above everyone else – the Russian tennis player began – There was a big difference in terms of level. Now I have the feeling that the various Alcaraz and Sinner are ahead, sì but not so much. That, of course, è is my feeling. It will become more and more interesting to see who will dominate. Although you have to take into consideration that Novak is still playing".

Karen Khachanov: "I want to become a competitive player in big matches and tournaments"

"At some point you would like to win everything, of course, but I am trying to become a player in big matches and tournaments. That's when you have to be there physically, although I don&#39t think I&#39m at 100 percent of my physical capabilities yet. You have to be able to endure for a long time. I, for example, know that even if I am behind, I can come back, and that definitely helps me" continued the Doha ATP 500 winner.

Karen Khachanov: "The goal remains the same: to try to win a Grand Slam tournament"

"My opponents know very well that to beat me they will have to play three very good sets. I have not won any Grand Slam tournament, è true, yet, in the semifinals or quarters, I have lost only to very good players, which shows that I am lì, very close to the top of the ATP Ranking. As for my goal, however, it remains the same, which is to give my best to try to win a Grand Slam title" Karen Khachanov&quoted.
