• Tennis has been dominated by the big three of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for years
  • Djokovic is the youngest among tennis' big three
  • Fabio Fognini believes Djokovic can overcome Federer and Nadal when everything is said and done. 

With everything that is happening in the world, the talk about who is the current greatest tennis player remains relevant. ATP star Fabio Fognini managed to share his thoughts on the entire Big Three debate.

It is known that Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are among the best to ever step foot on the tennis court. The achievements of the three have surpassed everyone’s wildest imaginations as the trio has been constantly thrown in the greatest of all-time discussion.

These three are the biggest icons in the sport as they continue to take control of the tennis scene. Their achievements have been immense as Federer currently leads all male players with the most Grand Slams.

The 20 majors Federer may seem untouchable but Nadal has slowly caught up. The left-handed Spaniard has tallied a total of 19 Grand Slams and is in position to tie Federer as the best of all time.

But with Federer and Nadal competing close to each other, the current world number one Djokovic is right behind them with 17. Given that the Djokovic is the youngest among the three puts him in a to wrap everything up on top.

To add to these, Fognini shared that he predicts Djokovic to walk out with the most titles when everything is said and done. Per Essentially Sports, the Italian player emphasized that Djokovic is in position to surpass his rivals, Federer and Nadal.

“Amongst the Big Three he is the one who can overcome most of all, for the head, the body, and the hunger he has. I think that he can improve Federer’s record,” Fognini said.

While the dominance of the big three is already a staple in the tennis community, Fognini shared that Djokovic’s mindfulness is what helps him stand out.

“I had a good chat with Nole. I also asked him about meditation, maybe it might come in handy. Djokovic and I have known each other since we were 14. It was already clear that he would do great things. He already had an iron character. We speak often,” Fognini added.

It will be interesting to monitor what will happen in the near future and how the landscape of tennis will look like in the coming years.
