Renowned tennis coach Rick Macci has recently shared his high regard for Carlos Alcaraz, calling him the most complete player in the game today. Macci’s praise for Alcaraz stems from the player’s versatility across all surfaces, with his impressive performance on hard courts leading Macci to declare it as his best surface. In an interview with Tennis-Infinity.com, Macci pointed out that Alcaraz’s game is not limited to any particular surface and he has the ability to compete against any player on any given day.
Macci also commended the young athlete’s mental strength, describing him as a humble, grateful, and focused performer who loves the competition. “Against any player, any day, on any surface, he’s going to be able to hang in there. A lot of people think clay is his best surface, I say it’s hard court. I think he does more damage with his power. He has such a cafeteria of shots at his disposal on the menu on clay, I think he has too many options,” he said.
Macci added, “He’s gonna lose, he’s gonna fail, he’s gonna choke, he’s gonna feel pressure, but in my opinion, if he can say healthy, because I’m just a little concerned, he slides so much and he’s very violent in his movement and he’s gotten a few injuries so you got to keep an eye on that, he’s the most complete player inside and out.”
Macci further elaborated on his assessment of Alcaraz‘s game, stating that the teenager has an impressive array of shots at his disposal on clay, which could potentially become overwhelming for him. In contrast, on hard courts, Alcaraz’s powerful game is more effective, as evidenced by his recent Indian Wells trophy win.
Aside from Alcaraz’s remarkable talent and versatility, Macci also highlighted the player’s unwavering focus and love for the game, which he believes set him apart from other players. Macci praised Alcaraz’s showmanship and performance, but noted that the young athlete remained grounded and grateful for his success “But then, the wild card. He was born to do this, he’s a showman, he’s a performer. But he has humility, he has gratitude. So he’s a very complete individual. Because this could get to your head, but he loves to perform, he’s all about the competition.”
