The next grand slam of the season is the US Open. Carlos Alcaraz will defend the title in the men’s bracket this year. Novak Djokovic’s coach Goran Ivanisevic has stated that only Serbian and Jannik Sinner can challenge Carlos Alcaraz at the upcoming US Open.
Looking at the ever-growing form of Carlos Alcaraz and his above-average ability to quickly adapt and change the game, it’s hard to disagree with Novak Djokovic’s coach, who claims that only two people can make it difficult for the Spaniard at the US Open.
-Jannik Sinner is the only one who can threaten Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open along with Novak Djokovic.- said Serb’s coach, Goran Ivanisevic.
Ivanisevic further elaborated that Sinner’s game makes Alcaraz uncomfortable (they have a 3-3 head-to-head record). He also highlighted Medvedev as someone who could be a huge threat if he is having a “good” day.
-Sinner’s game worries Alcaraz. They’ve had some very interesting matches so far. Also, if Medvedev has a good day and plays, for me he is also a phenomenal player. Novak is the only dinosaur among the best, the rest are too young.- Ivanisevic stated.
He also emphasized that Alcaraz is the only player currently posing a real threat to Djokovic’s game.
Do you agree with Ivanisevic’s theses?
