It’s getting bored: Carlos Alcaraz expresses dislike for constant comparisons with Rafael Nadal, wishes not…



Carlos Alcaraz wants constant comparisons with Rafael Nadal to end and hopes that he is not asked about the same as often as it happens. The world No. 1 has long been compared to compatriot and tennis great Nadal, ever since he rose to the professional scene.

He has gone on to emulate many of Nadal’s achievements over the last couple of years, giving rise to more talk of comparisons. Most recently, Alcaraz became just the second teenager since Rafael Nadal in 2005 to win at least three ATP Masters 1000 titles by clinching the 2023 Indian Wells title on Sunday.

The 19-year-old Spaniard recently took part in a rapid-fire Q&A and was asked about the one question people ask which often annoys him. While Alcaraz is not annoyed by the comparisons with Nadal, he certainly wishes the questions would stop.

“It’s not annoying, but I would say the comparison with Rafa,” Carlos Alcaraz said in response.

Alcaraz was also quick to name Roger Federer when asked about the one tennis player he would not mind getting stuck with in an elevator. The Spaniard, who has long expressed his admiration for Federer, said he would like to ask the Swiss many things.

“Roger Federer. A lot of things to ask,” Alcaraz said.

Alcaraz regained the world No. 1 ranking by winning his 8th career title at Indian Wells this past Sunday and will now aim to retain the top spot by successfully defending the Miami Open.
