Who Is Jaime Alcaraz, the Rising Tennis Prospect Repeating the History of World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz?

Jaime Alcaraz Garcia, who is only 11 years old, has already made a name for himself on the junior circuit. Videos of the gifted youngster displaying his amazing tennis skills had previously gone viral on social media. Many of Carlos Alcaraz’s teammates have also praised Jaime for his skills on the court.

Despite being only 20 years old, Carlos Alcaraz has already taken the tennis world by storm. The Spaniard, who already holds a Grand Slam championship, became the youngest ATP world No. 1 in history. Now that his brother Jaime is already competing in prestigious junior events, it appears that another Alcaraz hero is just around the corner.

Just weeks after his older brother, Carlos’ spectacular victory at Wimbledon, the youngster has already demonstrated his toughness by taking first place in the U-12 division on the Rafa Nadal tour. To win the trophy, Jaime Alcaraz defeated Beltran Serrano De Pablo in the championship match. He posted photos of himself holding the trophy on social media as he celebrated his victory.

Seven years after Carlos accomplished a comparable accomplishment in 2016, Jaime triumphed. On the Rafa Nadal tour at the time, the Spaniard also took first place in the U-14 division. With the younger Alcaraz already getting ready to take on big names in the sport, fans have been wondering if the Alcaraz brothers could be the next Williams Sisters. 

Jaime Alcaraz has the ‘better forehand’ – Carlos Alcaraz

The young Jaime looks up to Dominic Thiem and aspires to become like him, as shared by Carlos Alcaraz. On the internet, a video of Jaime Alcaraz Garcia appeared. The young prospect was seen hitting the practice court at the IMG Future Stars while showcasing his amazing tennis abilities.

Jaime was also observed using Thiem’s Babolat Pure Strike racquet. Thiem noticed the intriguing feature and commented jokingly, “He’s playing the right racket @carlitosalcarazz.” To which Carlos commented revealing Jaime looks up to Thiem, “@domithiem he loves you!! You are his idol,”

The current world number one has already asserted that his younger sibling might surpass him in talent. The two-time Major champion made the comment, “Better forehand than mine,” on a video of his brother practicing. Jaime is trained by Abenza Sanchez Ramon, according to the IMG Future Stars website.
