Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are without a doubt the three greatest players of all time in tennis history. Although it is difficult to choose just anyone, as they now have the same number of Grand Slams, no one can deny that each of them has inspired millions of young people.
One can get a glimpse of the dominance of the 'Big Three' by the fact that in the last decade, they have won over 90% of the Grand Slam titles. This kind of hegemony in any sport is a rare thing to see. Teymuraz Gabashvili reveals why no other player could approach Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic In a recent interview with Puntobreak.com, Russian tennis player Teymuraz Gabashvili mentioned that both the ATP and the ITF failed to promote the players and therefore therefore, no one could match the levels of Federer, Nadal or Djokovic.
He seems like he is clearly unhappy with that kind of dominance and feels that it has had an adverse effect on the sport as well. “The problem with always winning the same is that it becomes more difficult to promote others, almost impossible.
The ATP tried in many ways, but this, also an ITF job, is more the fault of the ITF and their way of governing the Federations and the Grand Slams,” Gabashvili said in the interview. He specifically focused on the ITF and stressed that the body needs to encourage other players, as it is the organization that manages the Grand Slams, the most important sporting tournaments in tennis.
