“First of all, it’s a very difficult mantle to take over,” Becker told CloudFest. “Federer, Nadal and Djokovic weren’t only tennis heroes, they are sporting heroes. They are cultural icons. “You talk about the young Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz as the next hot thing. He’s amazing, he plays great, he looks good and has the full package as a tennis superstar. But there’s a lot more to it than playing tennis. You have to come back, you have to defend your titles, you become a representative of your country and you’re getting into boxes you didn’t think existed before.” Can Alcaraz go on to reach those giddy heights of Federer, Nadal and Djokovic? Only time will tell. And of course, the competition is hotter than ever with the likes of Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Sinner and more waiting to pounce. “We have to be careful. Nobody is perfect and we have to watch that these tennis players are people. And people make mistakes.”
