Andy Murray: "I don't know how many Grand Slams Carlos Alcaraz will win"

Andy Murray's path to the Miami Open did not go beyond the first round. Defeated by Dusan Lajovic in straight sets, the British tennis player was not the protagonist of any marathon or heroic comeback: therefore, the possibility of seeing a third-round clash with the young Slam champion Carlos Alcaraz has vanished.

In the press conference that followed the defeat, the three-time Grand Slam champion talked about the Spanish tennis player: "He has an excellent all-round game which I think will adapt well to all surfaces. He's an incredible engine, great athlete.

He has a lot of variety of he game of he. I hope he keeps the style of play he has now because he's really exciting to watch. He's obviously so far along in his young career, doing better than most of the guys who have come in ​​ the last like eight to ten years.

I know many people are waiting for him to win more than 20 Grand Slams, as if it were a normal thing. I wouldn't predict that to anyone. I guess, though, that he'll be on top as long as he wants." The schedule The first halfway point on hard courts ends with the Miami Open, now it's time to think about clay.

For the British tennis player it would be a great comeback, but ideas are not yet clear about the next few days: "I think I'll go to Spain. My family is going there on the 30th so I will be joining them there. I was hoping to do much better here.

I think I'll stay and train here on clay for a few days before going to Spain, but I'm not sure," said the former number one and Olympic champion. The return to earth is scheduled for Monte Carlo, as indicated by the entry list: it is one of the alternatives, but the tournament has not yet assigned its wild cards for this year's edition.
