Andy Murray staggered by Rafael Nadal record and raises Carlos Alcaraz question

Date:


Alcaraz has been heralded as the heir to Nadal and his emergence in 2022 with four ATP titles – including wins at two Masters 1000 events – saw him tipped to challenge at Roland Garros last week. The teenager ended up losing to Alexander Zverev in the quarter-finals, although his time will undoubtedly come at a major soon enough.

Ranked No 7 in the world, Alcaraz may well fancy his chances in the final two majors of the year. But even though Alcaraz is being tipped to become a multiple Grand Slam champion in the future, Murray has used the young Spanish prodigy as an example at just how bonkers Nadal’s record of the French Open is.

“Alcaraz is 19 now, so he would have to win it every single time (until age 33) to achieve that,” he added. “I just don’t see that happening.”
