Stefanos Tsitsipas is not afraid of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal - Wilander

The seven-time Grand Slam winner Mats Wilander indicated Stefanos Tsitsipas, Felix Auger Aliassime and Frances Tiafoe as some of the favorites to win multiple Majors in the future. "I see those names as the greatest favorites to win a Grand Slam", said the Swede.

"There is a similar situation on the women side, a new generation of players has not beaten Serena Williams too many times. Look at Stefanos Tsitsipas, one win over Roger Federer and one loss. He beat Rafael Nadal. He played the best guys several times and we saw he is not afraid of them and their names.

If those new generations of players are afraid of Novak, Rafa and Roger, is because those three are still at the top of the rankings. Beating them in best of five sets is not easy but that can put them in trouble in the following matches.

Daniil Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov, Karen Khachanov; those names are still the youngest generation." Wilander finally praised Ashleigh Barty: "I think she is a good defender and attacker.

The women's tennis is becoming more complicated with it. I think Ash Barty is the first player who is good in any aspect of the game."
