Rafael Nadal would be a bit further than Djokovic by winning US Open - Toni

In an interview to Radio Marca Rafael Nadal's uncle Toni spoke about his nephew being one win away from winning his 19th Grand Slam title at the US Open. Nadal will face Daniil Medvedev on Sunday final. "I know he is not thinking about it and he is focused on the US Open.

But if he manages to win he will start thinking that now he is a bit closer to Roger and a bit further than Novak", said Toni. Nadal is set to end his season in the Davis Cup Finals in Madrid: "They are the best memories I have.

But the calendar was very complicated before. You switched surface, continent... Winning the Davis Cup would be a big end to a 2019 that has been very nice." In an interview to Libero Paolo Bertolucci, a former world No.

12, spoke about the future of tennis once Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic retire from the professional tour. Bertolucci said: "They are legends who re-write history success after success. While many younger guys, not just in tennis, are called amazing players, they keep playing and win.

The nice thing is that in tennis there are always new faces. People once asked themselves how tennis would have been without Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe. Then it was Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg's turn. Then Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi.

The stars of tomorrow are Stefanos Tsitsipas, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Daniil Medvedev and, why not, Matteo Berrettini." John McEnroe said: "Berrettini's potential upside is a top five one."
