Paul Annaconethe former tennis player and coach of great legends such as Roger Federer and Pete Sampras, spoke about the upcoming Wimbledon tournament, the third Grand Slam of the season, played on the lawns of the All England Club.
Annacone focused on the challenge between Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz. The American wanted to express a rather clear opinion in an interview with the Tennis Channel: “The question is: can anyone bring down Novak? This is in my opinion the main question.
A lot will depend on the draw and the style of the matches.” Then he added: “I still think that the best player to eliminate Nole is a boy, Carlitos Alcaraz. Just because he can hurt you in so many different ways. I think that on a grass pitch there are many people who can have a chance.
But pulling off a feat like that in three out of five sets in a Major is very difficult. I think Alcaraz has the best chance to eliminate Djokovic.” Appointment with history for both athletes: the Serbian champion can write another incredible chapter in his career , considering the 24 Grand Slams and the unbeaten run he would keep in London.
The Spaniard could win his second title after the US Open, becoming to all intents and purposes the main rival of the 36-year-old from Belgrade.

Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic are the two undisputed favorites for Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam tournament of the 2023 season which will take place from Monday 3 July. According to many insiders, the Spaniard and the Serbian could contend for the prestigious titit le on london grass in an epic final: many are waiting for a sort of revenge in the United Kingdom after the battle at the Roland Garros, which lasted practically two sets given the cramps then accused by the native of Murcia.
With the Queen’s title conquered by the Iberian, discussions about who could be the big favorite in a hypothetical final act between the two have rekindled.
