Andy Roddick, a former American tennis player, has ignited a heated debate in tennis circles by claiming that the young Spanish player Carlos Alcaraz was a better player than Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer.

Roddick was asked to compare Alcaraz with other teenagers such as Nadal or Federer. He didn’t hesitate, saying that Alcaraz has already become a better tennis player than those two legends at his age. “I am not hyperbole so I don’t say this because he won today. But I think he is the most complete male tennis player I have ever seen at 19 years old. Roddick stated that Roger won his first Major at the age of 21, Rafa did so at 17, but Rafa wasn’t good on all surfaces until maybe 20-21-22.
