The Old World does not. 5 Fernando Gonzalez recently participated in the never-ending GOAT debate. The Chilean recently played at Tennis Championship event at the Royal Albert Hall in London and during his media appearances spoke of what he believes to be the greatest of all time in the trilogy. Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
While everyone has their own parameters to determine who they think is the greatest, Gonzalez also talked about the factors he believes will determine the greatness of the trio that broke almost all of them. tennis records.
“A few years ago, the idea that anyone could win 10 Grand Slams was unbelievable, but now we have three guys with 20 and it is incredible. In terms of numbers, I’m sure Novak will end up with the most Grand Slams and possibly the best stats, but for me, there are other factors when you decide who’s the greatest.
“When you watch Novak, he looks like he will never miss a ball and Rafa is running around with pain all over his body, so it’s hard to say who is the greatest. Novak is breaking all records and it looks like he will continue to do so for a number of years. To me, you’re not just saying that this guy has the most titles so he’s the best.
“You can choose your favorite according to how the three boys play, I prefer Roger. His backhand, serve and one-handed volley and his style is more classic,” said ‘Mano de Piedra‘ (Hand of Stone), nicknamed Fernando for his strong and tough forehand.
Fernando Gonzalez speaks about the new generation
With the rise of young players on the ATP Tour, Gonzalez talks about his excitement to see the new generation giving veterans a run for their money.
“To be without competition for a few months last year was difficult and now, there are still problems with travel. Hopefully, we can go into next year and have a more normal tennis year because there’s a lot of exciting things going on in our sport.
“We’re waiting to see if Roger can come back, what will happen to Rafa and you’ll see Daniil Medvedev take his first big win. Then I liked (Andrey) Rublev and (Jannik) Sinner. They have a lot of talent and can be successful in the game for many years to come,” Gonzalez added.
With Federer chosen as the greatest by Gonzalez, that is another legend in favor of the Swiss.
