It is now almost sickening to talk about GOAT: who is the best ever? Who among Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer can be recognized as the best saddle in the history of the Game, and of the history of sport? The answer is difficult, the factions that are divided between the three giants of the tenni are very heated with their reasons.
The answer could be found in the details, in the smallest. Details that for Djokovic and Ndaal, still in business, are like oceans. In the crucial moments of a season or in front of very prestigious tournaments in which you have to bring out the best level of your tennis, the champions always respond present.
Novak Djokovic was able to win the Nitto ATP Finals for the sixth time in his career, confirming himself as one of the best tennis players in the world. Clear path by the Serbian, who did not lose a single match during the event held at the PalaAlpitour in Turin and granted only one set in the group stage to the Russian Daniil Medvedev.
During the press conference, after the two-set success against Norwegian Casper Ruud, the Belgrade native was asked if he thinks he is the best player in the world. Nole didn't shy away from answering and said: "I'm not. I'm fifth!
This week I probably am. Overall the rankings show who had the best year and Alcaraz is number 1 in the world. There isn't much to say about it. In my mind I always see myself as the best player in the world, of course. I have that kind of mindset and that kind of approach.
Regardless of who is on the other side of the net, regardless of what the surface is, regardless of what season it is, what number of the pro season we're facing in my career, I mean, it's always the same. The ambitions are the highest possible.
That kind of approach I feel has led me to where I am sitting here today at 35, holding one of the greatest trophies in the sport. I don't feel like there are any interruptions or thoughts about letting my career go on the circuit for a while.
I still feel motivated. I feel good in my body and I take care of myself. It all starts with emotions, for me this is really love and passion. As long as it's there, I'll do everything in my power to challenge the young boys for the biggest trophies."
