Nadal, Djokovic, and Federer's karaoke bit turns out hilariously prophetic (VIDEO)

Tennis social media influencer Bastien Fachan observed that during a karaoke session organized at the 2007 Roland Garros, each of the Big Three chose songs that kind of predicted their futures. Roger Federer picked Tina Turner's "Simply The Best", Novak Djokovic picked Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive", and Rafael Nadal picked Los Lobos' "La Bamba." Here are their performances:

Why were their performances prophetic?

Roger Federer is regarded by many as being the best player that ever existed due to his beautiful way of "drawing" on the courts with his racket and ballerina-like flow.

Therefore, Tina Turner's "Simply The Best" is a fit choice. As for Novak Djokovic, his statement with the song "I Will Survive" resembles well the tolerance and persistence he fought on the circuit all these years, even when the visa problems appeared.

Now, if you're not Spanish, you wouldn't understand much of Nadal's choice. Yet, a verse of the song reads "I am not a sailor, I am a captain." Well, Nadal was no ordinary sailor on the waves of the tennis courts, especially the clay ones, and he also loves to sail his yacht.

Apart from the karaoke session, Novak Djokovic seems to like to sing the most. Nole once sang Sting's "Englishman in New York", and once sang at his brother's wedding.
