Carlos Alcaraz feels he’s ready to challenge at the French Open after beating Novak Djokovic on Saturday. The young Spaniard beat the Serb 6-7, 7-5, 7-5 to make the final of the Madrid Open. And he now feels he’s ready to rub shoulders with the very best in the game, particularly after besting Rafael Nadal earlier in the week as well.

Alcaraz was the underdog going into his contest with Djokovic, despite getting the better of Nadal earlier in the week. And though he lost the first set, the 19-year-old bounced back to make the final where he’ll now face Alexander Zverev.

Alcaraz has now spoken to Eurosport and insists that, after beating Djokovic, he can make his mark at the upcoming French Open. And he also expressed a belief that the win proves he’s doing all the right things as he looks to become one of the best players in the world.

"It feels great, it means a lot to me [to beat Djokovic],” he told Eurosport after putting Djokovic to the sword a day after his win over clay-court king Nadal.
