During a recent interview, Dimitri Tursunov addressed the GOAT, focusing on the Big 3 Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Tursunov said: “To be honest, I happen to read what people say on this topic.
Everyone has their own opinion about the GOAT, and it’s true. I have never had this overwhelming desire to decree who is the greatest. Of all time, I don’t care much. Roger Federer was the first to dominate the circuit every month of the year.
Pete Sampras was also dominant at times but Roger took tennis to another level. Then came Rafael Nadal, who hooked Federer and surpassed him, winning 22 Grand Slams. At one point, he was joined by Novak Djokovic, who is the youngest of the three and is only one distance behind Rafa in the Majors’ all-time standings.
One day someone will come who will break all his records” Despite some setbacks, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have won three of the four Grand Slams played in 2022. The Spaniard has conquered the Australian Open and Roland Garros, proving once again to be a living legend.
After having played only seven official tournaments last year, the Mallorcan managed to keep the pain in his foot at bay and win 22 Majors. The Serbian, for his part, paid a very high price for his choice not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus.
The 35-year-old from Belgrade had to miss the Australian Open and the US Open, but he redeemed himself by triumphing at Wimbledon for the fourth time in a row (seventh in history). 2022 will also be remembered as the year of Roger Federer’s retirement.
The Swiss said goodbye to tennis at the Laver Cup, which took place at the O2 Arena in London from September 23 to 25. The 41-year-old from Basel played his last match with Nadal, to receive a splendid tribute.
Latest update on King Roger
During a conference organized by his equipment supplier Uniqlo in Tokyo, Japan, Roger Federer spoke about the possibility of becoming a coach and also made some confessions about his new activities in retirement.
“I’m a little scared to practice other sports. My knees are irregular. We have to wait a few months and see how it develops. Now it’s time to travel. My family and I always plan vacations and I want them to be really fun.
I would like to take my children to Africa. Before, vacations always had to be something relaxing after many months of playing tennis. Now that I’m retired, I think we can have a more adventurous vacation,” revealed the man with 20 Grand Slam titles.
