Seven-time Grand Slam champion Mats Wilander has told Carlos Alcaraz that he needs to “chill out” to stand a chance of getting the better of Novak Djokovic.
As the two prepare for the Wimbledon final, Wilander has warned of a French Open repeat where the Spaniard suffered from cramp which he claimed was caused by nerves against Djokovic.
“In Paris, I would say he was too prepared and started thinking about it as soon as he won in the quarters,” Wilander told Eurosport. “It seems like he started thinking about it too early, and we heard that from one of his coaches.
“I think he just has to take it down a notch and chill out, which is not easy, to not be thinking about the final.
“He needs to work on things that might help him, but he just has to go through regular preparations, and he should be okay.
“He needs to not think about the final too much, and I think he learnt so much from their match in Paris.”
