Carlos Alcaraz expresses desire to play against  Roger Federer

ATP world No. 1 Alcaraz is hoping to get a chance to play against Roger Federer

before the Swiss tennis player retire from Tennis.

Roger Federer turned 41 last month, and hasn't really played much tennis over the last 2 years.

However, Roger Federer is expected to return to tennis at Laver Cup.

"Playing against Roger Federer would excite me and beating a 'Big 3' player in a Grand Slam event."

"I’ve always said that in order to be the best, you have to beat the best," Alcaraz told

So far, Roger Federer has been confirmed for 2 tennis events - the Laver Cup and Swiss Indoors Basel.

Swiss Indoors Basel, which will take place between October 24-30, is also set to feature world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz.

If everything goes well and both Carlos Alcaraz and Roger Federer participate, there is a chance that Carlos Alcaraz gets his wish fulfilled.
