New Delhi, 06 May 2022

As per news report of The Indian Express, The 35-year-old Nadal and the 19-year-old Alcaraz will meet Friday in a clash of generations that Spanish fans had been craving to see up close. Nadal has won both matches he played against Alcaraz but said the youngster is in better form entering Friday’s encounter in what should be a sold-out “Caja Mágica” center court. “I think that today, he is better than me and he has a good dynamic, a good momentum,” Nadal said. “I think I am a very realistic person, and that doesn’t take me to not believe that I can win or that I can do it, but today I think that Alcaraz is in a better physical state of mind, is more fit. I came here without playing. He’s younger, so he has that extra energy.”
