The Prophecy Fulfilled by Carlos Alcaraz

The Prophecy Fulfilled by Carlos Alcaraz

The prophecy of Nico Almagro on Rafael Nadal and Roland Garros when he suffered from the power of the manacorí in Paris continues to be relevant when the Balearics lift a Cup of the Musketeers. They are fourteen with the one made in this season’s edition.

Quarter-finals 2008. Tired of being dominated, he exclaimed in the second set: “He will win Roland Garros 40 years in a row. He will be 65 and he will continue to win Roland Garros.” Rafa Nadal is 36 today.

Almagro lost 6-1, 6-1 and 6-1. Then a compatriot of Nico, Carlos Alcaraz, he was 5 years old. He has already shown his precocity on the courts of Real Sociedad Club de Tenis Murcia.

The always spontaneous Almagro would surely have made another pithy phrase famous if he had suffered the pranks of Charlie Brown On a track. Return every ball, it’s lightning fast. And courageous, on the court and in his overall approach to tennis.

For the prophecy, the one he himself made public at the beginning of April this year. After winning his first ATP Masters 1000 in Miamiprecisely beating the Norwegian in the final Casper RuudCarlos Alcaraz attended a small group of Spanish journalists, including Mundo Deportivo himself.

And it was categorical. “I’m not afraid to say I’m ready to win a Grand Slam. Maybe it’s not Roland Garros, but I can win a Grand Slam this year. I have confidence and I’m ready physically and mentally,” he said when he was still just 18.

He was right. it was not in Paris, He also didn’t expect it to happen at Wimbledon, although he didn’t mention it specifically, but it did happen on his most natural court, the hard court, and at a US Open in which, without half of his current potential, especially physical, he finished fourth on his debut.

And the world number one? “I’m working to find my place at number one. You never know when a Grand Slam is going to come, even if I’m already ready to get a good result. And it’s even more difficult for the number one to come, which I hope it will be as soon as possible, but I can’t say when. He wasn’t in the top 10 yet, that he would enter on April 25. And maybe he came even sooner than you could imagine, even though his career is going fast in every direction.
