‘I don’t see many flaws’ – Andy Murray tips Carlos Alcaraz for huge future

Andy Murray has predicted a huge future for Carlos Alcaraz after getting a close look at the Spanish youngster at Indian Wells.

Murray dropped the first set in their second-round clash but battled his way back to eventually get the better of the 18-year-old.

However, on what was a very slow court in California, Murray admitted he was incredibly impressed with what he had seen.

“He’s already a fantastic player but he’s got bags of potential,” Andy Murray said of Carlos Alcaraz.

“I think there are a few guys that can obviously get there but just from watching him, I don’t see many flaws for a young player.

“From what I’ve seen, he’s got all the tools to be at the top of the game very soon.

“I think physically he’s extremely strong and moves great around the court. He obviously plays well on the clay and on the hard courts which isn’t the case for all the young guys.”

“He’s got a big game and I think he’s got a good attitude. I spoke a little bit to his coach Juan Carlos Ferrero about him and he said he’s a good worker and he loves tennis and is very humble and stuff but believes in himself a lot.”

Murray will now face world number four Alexander Zverev, who he beat a year ago at the Cincinnati Masters.
