World No. 1, Carlos Alcaraz, is scaling new heights with each passing day. The 20-year-old Spaniard, who recently became the youngest ever to reach the summit of the rankings, has now made it to the last-four stage at the 2023 French Open. Now a dream clash awaits as Alcaraz is all set to take on 22-time major winner Novak Djokovic in the semifinal at Roland Garros.

Before that all-important clash, Alcaraz’s coach, Juan Carlos Ferrero, has a lot to praise about his protege. Ferrero, in an interview with Reuters, has spoken about how Alcaraz rose to fame in such a short period and how it is his self-belief that will enable him to achieve more greatness.

I think he’s ready to try to do big things in tennis. He dreams very big about what he can do, so I think it’s one of the most important things that he believes in himself, and he believes he can go to the court and win against everybody,Ferrero told reporters.

With that being said, there is no denying the fact that Alcaraz’s coach is impressed with his ward’s performances so far.

“I’m obviously impressed with his level, but I’m with him now for almost five years, so let’s say I know the level he’s able to play. The most impressive thing he shows in the most important moments of the tournament, and the most impressive for me, is that he is showing his best level against the best. Physically, he’s 100%. He’s ready for the tournament,” Ferrero signed off.

The reigning US Open champion has lost just a single set so far in the tournament. Particularly, Alcaraz’s performance against fifth-seed Stefanos Tsitsipas was praiseworthy, as the Spaniard swatted away his Greek opponent in straight sets.

Alcaraz now looks like the favorite to win the title this Sunday. However, he will first have to clear the roadblock in the form of Djokovic, and it is his self-belief to beat anyone that will be handy when they take on each other on a historic night at Court Philippe Chartier.
