Carlos Alcaraz the man to beat on earth, says Novak Djokovic

World number one Novak Djokovic said Carlos Alcaraz is the man to beat on dirt and is one of the top title competitors for the French Open.

Alcaraz has come out on top for consecutive claycourt championships in Barcelona and Madrid in the wake of starting a physical issue hit season with the Buenos Aires crown and is ready to jump Djokovic into best position in the rankings after the continuous Italian Open.

Rafa Nadal, a 14-time champion at Roland Garros, has been managing a hip physical issue he endured at the Australian Open in January and fears are developing the Spaniard might miss the Paris Huge homerun.

Djokovic, 35, told correspondents in Rome that Alcaraz truly deserved the main positioning.

“He will be number one after this competition whatever occurs. Deservedly so,” he added. “He has been playing some extremely noteworthy tennis, an extraordinary level. He’s the player to beat on this surface, no question.

“Obviously, it relies upon assuming Nadal will play in the French Open or not. In any case, Alcaraz is one of the top picks with practically no situation.”

Djokovic, who skirted the American hardcourt swing as he was unvaccinated for Coronavirus, said he wanted to reignite his contention with U.S. Open hero Alcaraz with a likely last gathering on the cards in Rome.

“We confronted each other once barely a year ago in Madrid,” said Djokovic, who lost that match in three sets. “In the event that we have an opportunity to confront each other here, it would be in the last. I figure we would both love to play in the last.”

The 22-times Huge homerun champion, who plays Tomas Martin Etcheverry later on Friday, said he had conquered a right elbow issue that kept him out of Madrid.
“It’s completely fine. There’s in every case a few things to a great extent that irritate you at this level. It’s generally expected,” Djokovic said.

“At the point when you’re not 25 any longer, I suppose you experience that a smidgen more than whatever used to be the situation. It requires somewhat greater investment to recuperate.”
