Mats Wilander stings Jannik Sinner

The one between Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner will be a rivalry that will mark tennis in the coming years: former tennis player Marts Wilander, in an interview with L'Equipe, sided with the Spaniard. "With the end of the Big 3, Carlos Alcaraz è a godsend for our sport. He canò make tennis even more popular. He is only 21 years old and has proven that he does not need to play the best tennis to win, è the sign of the greatest".

Sinner è the new number one but Wilander downplayed:"Being number 1 è just a matter of computers. It’s just data. People will always prefer live tennis over a machine".

More on Alcaraz: "He doesn’t systematically make the best choice but the’arsenalè lì, at his disposal. The icing on the cake? He smiles on the field! È a perfect ambassador".

"His chances of winning more Slams are very high and not because of his strokes but because of his brains and courage, he è incredible. He controls the exchanges and it seems that the match always depends on him".
