LONDON, July 19 (dpa/EP) –
The German tennis player Boris Becker, winner of six ‘Grand Slams’, surrendered to the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz, whom he sees as “a new king”, after his victory against the Serbian Novak Djokovic in the final of the last edition of the British tournament .
“One thing is clear: we have a new king and his name is Carlos Alcaraz,” Becker, the youngest Wimbledon champion, at 17 years and 7 months, said in an interview published this Wednesday by the weekly ‘Sport Bild’.
The German believes that the Murcian “in his second year at Wimbledon has confirmed his performance with a victory against his biggest rival.” “Novak Djokovic himself said after the final that Alcaraz was a mix of Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and himself, which is the greatest compliment in history. I’ll stick with that statement,” explained the former coach of the Serbian between 2013 and 2016.
