The tennis player that coach Patrick Mouratoglou has created, whom he refers to as “the ideal tennis GOAT,” possesses a number of traits shared by the Big Three: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic. Twenty-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer was referenced three times because Mouratoglou claimed that his ideal GOAT would possess his overall talent, volley, and footwork.
When Mouratoglou stated that his ideal GOAT would possess the toughness and battling spirit of the Spaniard, Nadal, a 22-time Grand Slam victor, twice heard his name. Three more players were named, including Djokovic, who won his 21st Grand Slam championship at Wimbledon last year. Mouratoglou added the Serb’s return, backhand, and athleticism to his list of the greatest players of all time.
Furthermore, Mouratoglou disclosed that the serve of Nick Kyrgios, the forehand of Stefanos Tsitsipas, and the mobility of Daniil Medvedev would make up his ideal GOAT. The solitary Grand Slam triumph for Djokovic this year occurred at Wimbledon, while Federer is yet to compete in 2022. Nadal has won two Grand Slams this year.
When predicting the future, Mouratoglou stated that Djokovic might be among the Big Three most likely to win additional Grand Slams. Rafael Nadal just defeated Novak in the quarterfinals of the French Open, but Mouratoglou revealed in a video uploaded on Instagram that Nadal was still dealing with a lot of pain from his injuries.
“The youngest of the three, Novak is in excellent physical shape. He still has a chance to compete at the highest level for a few more years, but it’s possible that he won’t be able to play in the upcoming US Open and Australian Open Grand Slam events. As a result, his next opportunity to win a title may be at Rafa’s home tournament at the French Open the following year.”
Regarding Rafa Nadal, John McEnroe
John McEnroe, a consultant for the fictitious BBC, is now amassing one-liners. The American left-hander provided his thoughts yesterday in response to a question regarding the distinctions between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
Rafael and Roger approach the concept of the GOAT in quite different ways. While Nadal acts like nothing matters more than giving it his all at every point in every game, Djokovic openly admits that he constantly wants more. According to history and the quantity of Grand Slams they have won, it appears to have gone fairly well for both of them.
For opponents, hearing Rafa claim, “I didn’t feel my foot, I didn’t even feel it,” must get old at times.
