They remember those exhibitions between Rafa Nadal and Federer on the roof of a skyscraper? Or the one disputed with half grass and half clay? Well, those friendly face to face, the most high-profile ones that could be played, today find theirsubstitute in the Djokovic-Alcaraz. This year’s great rivalry on the circuit ATP.
Tomorrow, Spanish and Serbian faces will be seen in Riyahd to close the year 2023 with the Tennis Cup of this year. For this reason they have interviewed the Balkan, who if at the beginning of the year he said that Alcaraz was not yet his winning rival, now he is less clear about it. “It’s good that there is a new great rivalry in tennis. He will lead the next 10 or 15 years“, he assured.
Nole does not even hesitate to mention him in the same conversation as his two great ‘nemesis’. “Rafa did not play in 2023, Federer retired… Our generation is ending, but the emergence of Alcaraz is great“, for him.
