In a press conference hosted by ESPN, the seven-time Grand Slam winner John McEnroe commented on the Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic dominance. The American said: "We all know that they have gotten better because of each other, I know I got better because I had to get better in a way with (Bjorn) Borg, (Ivan) Lendl and (Jimmy) Connors.
An individual sport desperately needs (rivalries)”. Asked who will get to the top of tennis, McEnroe replied: “Tsitsipas I think is going to be a great champion and player. He’s got everything that you could hope for.
And I think that this Canadian, Aliassime, is going to be — to me he’s going to be a number one." In an interview with Reuters, Denis Shapovalov said: “People say what are we going to do when they are gone.
But we have so many great young players. We don’t know who will be at the top but we are going to see rivalries that are just as good or even better. I think it’s an exciting time to be part of the Tour”.
