“The Turnover Is Really Very High”- Svetlana Kuznetsova 

In recent days, a question arises over the standard of the men’s tennis and women’s tennis. The apex of men’s ranking table has switched between the big three Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal or  Novak Djokovic in the last decades. At the same time, there is no standard ranking in the women’s tennis circuit. Always, there is one new player in the top 10 whenever releasing the ranking table. Especially in the last thirteen Grand Slams titles won by eleven different players.

” The turnover is really very high. And this is not because mid-level players have gone close to the leaders, it’s quite the opposite”, two time Grand Slam Champion added.
