Despite Carlos Alcaraz and Janek Sener insisting they wanted to take on Roger Federer before he retired, the two young tennis players never had the chance to fulfill their wish. However, they could still trade balls with Federer outside the ATP tour, as the Swiss mentor said he would continue to play the sport that made him famous.

“Playing Federer would excite me and win the ‘Big Three’ at a major tournament,” Alcaraz told the AP Tour website. “I’ve always said that to be the best you have to win the best.” In the same interview with the ATP, Alcaraz was asked if there was something special about his game.

“My answer is the same. I think anyone gives you anything. It’s not enough to snap your fingers and get the world under your feet. You have to work things out. I think what I’ve achieved, winning a Grand Slam and being number 1 in the world, is due to work.” Which I’ve done with my team for a long time.

It wasn’t the Rosas route, I had to suffer and go through hard times to get here. Alcaraz replied, “I’m not special, no one said I’d be the best, I worked for it.” Regarding Janek Sener, the Italian had the opportunity to face Novak Djokovic and Nadal throughout his youth race.

He’s always lost with both, but his biggest dream is to find Federer on the other side of the net. In an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Sener explained that he would like to face Roger: “With the talent that he has, Roger can always surprise.”

Navratilova talks about Alcaraz

In response to a tweet from a fan who thought she was a bigger player than Serena Williams, Martina Navratilova took the example of Carlos Alcaraz to explain that it’s always dangerous to compare athletes from different eras.

“I think it’s human nature to think what we have now is better, period. Comparing ages is just stupidity. If Carlos Alcaraz had been born 50 years ago, he wouldn’t have played the way he does now. But thank you anyway,” he said The person who won 18 singles titles in the Grand Slam.

As with the issue of GOAT, outside of the awards list, there is always a question of personal sensitivity and simply taste.
