Patrick Mouratoglou tried to build the characteristics of the greatest player of all time, and in doing so he selected characteristics from The Big Three (Federer, Djokovic and Nadal) and Nick Kyrgios. The coach said Roger Federer has the best volley shot, Nick Kyrgios has the best serve, Djokovic has the most efficient return and backhand, Rafael Nadal is the best fighter.
Mouratoglou reflects on the Big Three titles.
In an old video posted on his Instagram account, Patrick Mouratoglou focused on the eternal sporting battle between Federer, Djokovic and Nadal: “The GOAT title race is still alive and more exciting than ever.
First, let’s talk about Grand Slam tournaments. Novak wins Wimbledon and moves to 21 majors: one more than Roger and one less than Rafa. Novak leads the Australian Open standings with nine wins. Nadal dominates Roland Garros again; Federer is still the tennis player who has won Wimbledon the most times.
What awaits us in the future? Novak is the youngest of the Big 3 and is in great physical shape. So he has a chance to play at his best for a few more years. But he may be forced to miss the US Open and Australian Open and play the next Grand Slam at Nadal’s home in Paris.
Roger will soon turn 41 and plans to return to the Laver Cup Finals this season. It’s amazing to see him win another major. Nadal, on the other hand, is playing the best tennis of his life. Despite defeating Novak in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros, he is still struggling with some injuries.
As more time passes, it becomes harder for each of them to win Grand Slam tournaments. There are many young players ready to take their place. Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner join the Majors. Daniil Medvedev wins one at the US Open.
Nick Kyrgios, Matteo Berretini and Stefanos Tsitsipas were also featured. But are they all related to the Grand Slam? Novak has won over 1000 Masters. Only Rafa has won a singles gold medal at the Olympics.
Roger holds the record for most ATP Finals wins. Roger has won the most ATP titles ever. Is the GOAT title just a question of numbers?
