Greek track critical after defeat against Alcaraz: ‘I served like a newspaper’ | NOW

Tallon Greek track believes that he played “far below par” against Carlos Alcaraz on Wednesday. The number 53 in the world lost in the second round of Wimbledon in three sets to the Spanish teenager (4-6, 6-7 (0), 3-6).

“The feeling was bad the whole game and I served like a newspaper in my opinion,” said the 25-year-old Greek track. “I thought it was a very mediocre game from my side, but I didn’t think it was great either. But maybe I expected too much of myself and wanted to do it too well.”

“On Twitter I read comments from people who thought Alcaraz played well, but maybe it looked different from the outside. Unfortunately I didn’t give him the chance to make mistakes at the important moments. He was in the driver’s seat. and he could afford mistakes.”

Greek track, a lover of the slower tracks, said he lacked the right feeling on the fast grass tracks. “I had the feeling that every ball could go out two meters. If you are not in the game on clay, you can go back one meter, but that is not possible on this surface.”

‘Alcaraz is already an alien boy’

Nineteen-year-old Alcaraz is one of the best players Greece has ever played against. Last year the Dutchman lost at Wimbledon to Alexander Zverev and at the US Open he already played against Novak Djokovic.

“I thought Djokovic was very scary and I would prefer never to play against him again. Then I felt even worse than today. I think Alcaraz can also give you that feeling on clay or hard court. That boy is going to win a lot of grand slams “, said Greek Railways.

“He’s already one of the great players, really an otherworldly boy. His attitude, positivity and the calm he radiates are incredible. Hats off, because he is really one of the best players I’ve ever seen play live.”
