Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are called Big 3 in the men’s game because of their dominance and records. The three of them have 20, 20, and 18 Grand Slam titles under their belts. However, Argentinian tennis sensation Diego Schwartzman opines that they always want to be better. As a result, they continue to hone their skills every day.
Having had ups and downs beginning of the season, World No.9 recently claimed his fourth tour-level title at the Argentina Open without dropping a single set throughout the event.
After capturing an ATP 250 title at his home town, Diego Schwartzman expressed his thoughts on Federer, Nadal and Djokovic in an ESPN interview.
“Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic have many things, but the most important thing is that they always want to be better. (Even) today, they continue to learn. You see them train and make others better.” the 28-years-old from Buenos Aires revealed when speaking about Big 3.
“Nadal Will Dominate At The French Open For Two More Years”, says Diego Schwartzman
Having watched Rafael Nadal’s training sessions, Schwartzman went on to say it can scare you. The Argentine has also foreseen that Rafa would have been a dominant force at Roland Garros for a couple of more years.
Diego continued, “You see him (Rafael Nadal) train, and it scares you. Because of how hard it hits the ball, it bends your racket. He always wants to be better. He will dominate at the French Open for two more years.”(Quotes have been translated into English via Google translator)
“Greets Everyone”: Schwartzman Heaps Huge Praise on Federer
Swiss Maestro is best known for his kindness and sense of humour in the tennis world. At the same time, Federer is clever when returning balls to his opponents on the court.
“With Roger Federer, you are at the mercy of whether he wins or loses the points. If Federer is inspired, he makes you feel stupid. He doesn’t let you do anything. He has charisma, class, education, goes anywhere and greets everyone,” Schwartzman added.
While Roger Federer recently concluded his comeback campaign at Qatar Open 2021, Rafael Nadal is not ready to play due to a health concern.
