Former world No. 4 Robin Soderling revealed Roger Federer was his most uncomfortable opponent from the Big Three group. Soderling had a chance to play each member of the Big Three and he listed Federer as the one that was giving him the most problems.
Soderling's revelation should not come as a surprise as he beat the Swiss only once and lost to him 16 times. The most painful loss Soderling suffered to Federer was the one in the 2009 French Open final. Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, claimed his first and lone French Open title after beating Soderling.
"I'm not saying he was the best, but the most uncomfortable for my game was Federer. His style didn't suit my tennis," Soderling told Marca.
Soderling praises Federer, Nadal and Djokovic
Federer, Nadal and Djokovic each have 20 Grand Slams in their collection.
Many are curious to see which one of the three will break the all-time Grand Slam record and eventually finish with the most Grand Slams. "I think it depends on which player you like the most. What is evident is that they are the three best of all time and the most impressive thing is that they all played in the same era.
It has been very difficult for the rest to make room for us. I remember when I was the fourth of the world and I had to face them. Having all three of them has been very good for promoting our sport," Soderlined said of the greatest tennis player of all time debate.
Many doubt 40-year-old Federer will ever again win a Grand Slam. "I agree on Roger. It's very realistic about his chances. He has talked about maybe not even playing until 2023. So we will see. We will have our fingers crossed for him.
and hope that we get to see him very competitively next season," former world No. 1 Jim Courier recently said during his appearance on Tennis Channel.
