Gilles Simon:'Federer, Nadal, Djokovic are still better than other players'

Gilles Simon reflected on Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic dominance. The Frenchman said: "I think you have always to be careful with history and comparison. Having three guys so dominant, you know, on the tour for that many years, winning all the Slams will maybe never happen again.

It's quite a unique situation. Roger, Rafa, Novak are still better than the other players, better than the younger players that are here. It's, of course, harder to perform every week and to be 100 per cent every time.

But we could see again Rafa in the French Open was just better, you know. So maybe they will not win before 21 because they are still playing and performing so good, but the real question is who's gonna win after them the first Slams? Who's gonna be on top?" Asked who will be the first young player to win a Grand Slam title, Simon replied: "I think the first one who is gonna win a Slam is gonna have a massive advantage on the other one.

Maybe Felix will be this one. Maybe other players. Maybe Tsitsipas maybe. Could be a lot of players, because they have a very, very good generation. But you still have three guys that are tough to beat." Another veteran of the tour, Andy Murray, spoke about how he deals with his physical condition during matches: "After one hour, I start to feel a little bit more tired, obviously, because I played a lot and it’s late, you know, and it’s getting cold so my body is a little bit sorer.

‘But, you know, at the end we managed to win this crazy tiebreak and we are in the finals, and I’m so, so happy."
