Rick Macci shares surprising words on Djokovic, Alcaraz and Sinner


Serena Williams former coach talked about the two young champions and also about Novak Djokovic

Theformer Serena Williams coach Rick Macci spoke in an interview for Sportkeeda and explained how Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner are ready to take on the heavy legacy of the Bigs.

According to Macci – who shared an incredible prediction – the Spaniard and the Italian will have the chance to win at least 10 Slams in their careers.

“Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner are now at the top, we are talking about important numbers and I believe that both will reach double figures in terms of winning Grand Slam titles.

The sky is the limit for these guys and I believe they will grow by pushing each other, as happened with the Big Three. Competition makes you better, obviously there will be other athletes but they will dominate in the tennis world for a really long time,” he told.

Alcaraz is currently recovering from an injury while Sinner is fresh from the semi-final in Monte Carlo and is working hard to improve on clay.

Macci on Novak Djokovic

Rafael Nadal confirmed that barring any twists and turns, this will be his last time in the tournament which saw him triumph 12 times. Roger Federer has said goodbye to tennis for almost two years now, while ATP No.1 Novak Djokovic is experiencing a small crisis. We are aware that the era of the Big 3 is increasingly closer to its definitive end.

Tennis does not stop and indeed remains on the rise, there are many young talents, there is Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner but also other interesting options, such as the Danish Holger Rune or the very young Joao Fonseca

But if Novak Djokovic asked about Macci, Serena’s former coach, what would he say? In the same interview granted to Sportskeeda, the coach explained:

“If he had asked me, I definitely would have been involved. But I couldn’t travel. Maybe I could have gone to a Grand Slam, but at the end of the day, I run a business, I teach 50 hours a week to a lot of people on the pro tour, kids, adults, and I just do what I’ve always said I’d rather build the box than sit in the box anything exactly what he wanted from a coach don’t travel,” he told.
