Carlos Alcaraz has expressed his confidence that Rafael Nadal will perform well at the French Open despite concerns about injury. Nadal has missed the Madrid Open and the Australian Open since January because of a hip problem. He is a 14-time winner at this tournament.
Carlos, who has already won clay courts in Barcelona and Buenos Aires, is a strong favorite to win Roland Garros. Alcaraz, despite this, has stated that Rafael Nadal should not be underestimated, despite his hip injury. Alcaraz told journalists that Nadal would always be difficult to beat in the French Open even if his match rhythm was off.
Alcaraz stated, ” Rafa will certainly be spectacular, even if he doesn’t have any matches.
He admitted that Nadal will have a difficult time, but is confident that he will perform at a high level during the tournament. On May 30, the French Open will begin, and Nadal is expected to perform well.
Carlos Alcaraz wins a convincing victory over Alexander Zverev to advance to the Madrid Open quarterfinals
