Federer on Alcaraz: β€˜He’s doing fantastic’

Despite failing to advance into the final rounds of the China Open and Shanghai Rolex Masters, Federer commended Alcaraz for his achievements.

β€œAnd I think Carlos, he’s done as well as he possibly could have so far. And he’s going to lose some time to time, like here in Shanghai. But he’s doing fantastic. He’s got a great game & obviously an unbelievable future ahead of him,” Federer said.

Alcaraz recently dropped out of the Swiss Indoors in Basel due to an inflammation of his left foot’s sole and issues with his gluteal muscles.
