Darren Cahill on player who could end Federer, Nadal's dominance

Renowned tennis coach Darren Cahill believes that there is one player who can stop the Big Three's dominance: Alexander Zverev. The German has already defeated Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic and he is the world no. 3. “He has a little bit of an issue in the Majors but in the ATP events he’s been stunning in the way he’s been able to step up in the best of three matches.

He’s right up there with those three guys," Cahill said about Zverev speaking on ATP Tennis Radio. On these three guys dominating the Tour, Cahill added: “I think there is a bunch of young players coming through (who) are going to win Majors over the next five or ten years.

But they still need Roger and Rafa to retire. Novak, not so much because he is a little bit younger. For Rafa and Roger to still be doing what they are doing at their age, we are in a golden age. I don’t think we’ve ever seen this before and we’ll never see it again.

The dominance these guys have had over the last 10 or 15 years has been remarkable. For Novak to be able to rip away 15 of those Majors has been remarkable as well. And when you throw in Andy Murray, who in any different era he may have won 12 or 14 Grand Slams.

So the fact that he’s won three, done it the hard way, won a couple of Olympic Gold medals, full credit to him because it’s been a very stingy era for everyone but Murray, Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer”.
