Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, also known as Big 3, are dominant players in the men’s tennis world so far. They hold several records under their belts, including 20 Grand Slam singles titles. However, Andy Murray says that he doesn’t think a NextGen player will do the things as his greatest rivals did.
In a recent interview with rtbf, the member of Big four and three-time Grand Slam champion was asked which of these(Zverev, Medvedev, and Tsitsipas) young people from the Next Gen will be a dominant player as Big 3?
The Scot replied, “For me, right now, Medvedev is best equipped to win on hard. He just won the US Open, but before that his hard results were excellent. I think that his game is more complete than that of the others. On clay, it’s hard to say.”(Quotes Has Been Translated Into English Via Google Translator)Embed from Getty Images
“Tsitsipas is not bad at all but there are several other guys who could win too. And on grass, it’s even harder because even if the balls are slower, it’s still a surface for specialists and there aren’t many. Even Tsitsipas and Medvedev struggled on this surface so I don’t really know,” Murray added.
“I Also Think of Alcaraz Who Has Enormous Potential,” says Andy Murray
Besides, Murray believes that the Spanish teenager Carlos Alcarez has all the stuff to do as the Big 3 did.
“I also think of Alcaraz who has enormous potential but who is still young. There are quite a few guys who could aim for the top of the basket. We will see in 5 or 10 years who will be able to gain the upper hand, but I don’t think any of them will manage to win 20 Grand Slams as the 3 monsters did,” Murray confessed.
