Carlos Alcaraz fires warning to Novak Djokovic and Rafa Nadal after Madrid Open title win


He also became the first person to defeat Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic back-to-back in a clay court tournament. En route to securing the fifth ATP title of his burgeoning career, Alcaraz handed defeats to the greatest clay-court player, the world number one and the Madrid Open defending champion.

Following his latest victory, and with Roland Garros looming, the world number six declared he is ready to win the first of hopefully many Grand Slam crowns. “Yes yeah I think so. I think I’m ready to win a Grand Slam, I’m ready to go for it,” the 19-year-old said post match.

“It’s a goal for me this year to try and get my first Grand Slam. I’m going to work and let’s see what’s going to happen at Roland Garros.” Alcaraz’s variety of shots and athleticism were a joy to watch as he overpowered Zverev with his relentless hitting and supreme court coverage as the world’s best players were left with no answer to his brilliance this week.
