The Big 3 Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer have written history, but their decline is on the horizon, and Patrick Mouratoglou has analyzed what the future of tennis could be without them. The Frenchman, former coach of the American tennis legend Serena Williams, believes Tennis will survive even without the big names, although the new generation cannot guarantee the same success that Djokovic, Nadal and Federer had.

Mouratoglou said in an Instagram reel: "We've been lucky to witness the three greatest, playing at the same time in the same era, we're so lucky to have that. But we knew at some point this would stop, even though when it happens of course, we feel it's an important page of our sport that gets turned.

But I think tennis never stops, and new stars are coming up. We have a lot of young players from the new generation that are super exciting to watch . It's gonna be different tennis probably, but I think it's also super exciting to not know who can win.

We might have a situation like this in the future, or not! We'll see."

Kyrgios: "Novak Djokovic is the GOAT"

Nick Kyrgios expressed interesting considerations about Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer during the Mike Tyson Podcast and talked about the Big Three.

Here are his words specifically: "My most memorable victory is undoubtedly the first against Roger Federer, it is the most memorable one. I didn't even manage to enjoy it and celebrate because I had to play the next day. I was only 19 years old and I still had to face among the big names."

Regarding the fight on the GOAT, Nick bluntly expresses his opinion and reveals: "Novak Djokovic is the greatest of all time, he has 24 Slams and I believe he will win at least a couple more.

It's crazy and I find it absurd that he doesn't receive the credit he deserves. I fought with Nadal, sometimes he won and sometimes I won and then there was Roger Federer. No matter where, the crowd was always rooting for him.

He was the van's favorite and if I have to say. I think Nole is the GOAT but for me Roger Federer was the most difficult to face. He was always very aggressive on the court and his game left you no space and you didn't even have time to breathe." Finally, an anecdote about the match against Nadal: "There were nights when I stayed in the pub until 4 in the morning.

My agent kicked me out and made me go home, I played at Wimbledon against Rafa and won after 4 hard-fought sets. Maybe if If I went to sleep at 11 something would have changed."
