Rafael Nadal: 'Big Four era is coming to an end'

Rafael Nadal commented on his, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic dominance. The world No. 2 said: "We have been here for 15 years almost. Hopefully, but for my personal interest. At some point, these days, going to happen sooner than later that this era going to end.

Is arriving to the end. I am 33. Novak is 32. Roger is 38. Andy is 32, too. The clock is not stopping. That's part of the cycle of life. I'm not much worried about this because in tennis always going to be great champions."

On not facing a break point against Matteo Berrettini, Nadal added: "I didn't face a breakpoint against Chung either. What? Chung is not a good returner? Some days things goes like this. Other days, things go another way."

Recalling his recent meeting with Daniil Medvedev in the Montreal final, the 33-year-old concluded: "It was a windy day out there. Here the wind is not there. I don't know. Of course, helps little bit. But honestly, I think he's making the steps forward every single day.

Is a super tough final. I need to be playing at my best. I think at the end of the match I increased my level again today. I need to hold this level if I want to have chances on Sunday. If not, is so difficult. He is very, very solid."
