Taylor Fritz discussed what it means to go up against the Big 3 of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic during the press conference held in advance of his Washington debut. By Fritz “At Wimbledon, I had a great chance to defeat Rafael Nadal, but I blundered in the crucial time.
I played several excellent matches and felt quite satisfied, but I never faced Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, or Roger Federer. There is a significant mental challenge to overcome while playing against the Big 3.” Goran Ivanisevic went back to Nole‘s choice to forgo the coronavirus vaccine: “I hope that all vaccination requirements will be dropped.
There are still a number of infections in Australia, France, and England despite the vaccination rate, but the mortality toll is very low. According to me, the rules are highly conflicting. I took the double dose, so I don’t have any issues, but I strongly dislike the environment that has been developed over the past 2.5 years.”
Those three in 2022
The men’s circuit has been controlled by The Big 3 for more than 15 years. The first three Grand Slams of 2022 were split between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, further intensifying their rivalry and the GOAT discussion.
While the Serbian won Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career, the Spaniard won the Australian Open and Roland Garros. Nole saved a season that was on the verge of collapse by defeating his idol Pete Sampras and earning his fourth consecutive championship at Church Road.
The 35-year-old Belgrade player is putting in a lot of hard court work in the hopes that she would be able to fly to the US to compete in the US Open. Nadal will have a wonderful opportunity to climb higher in the all-time rankings of the Majors with the “Djoker” out of the picture.
The speech regarding Roger Federer is more complicated because he is currently struggling after undergoing a third operation on his right knee. The Laver Cup, which will be held from September 23 to 25 at London’s O2 Arena, will see the comeback of the 40-year-old Swiss.
