In an interview to Marca John McEnroe shared who can be the young guy who can break Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic dominance in the Grand Slams. "Thiem seemed to be ready after the French Open and then he was very consistent.
Stan Wawrinka seems on his way back. Karen Khachanov is improving his game. But if I have to take someone who can cause an upset, I would say Medvedev. It depends on how he deals with energy and if he reaches the final rounds being healthy", said McEnroe.
Meanwhile Mats Wilander, looking ahead to the US Open, said: "Hubert Hurkacz is one of the players who can reach the semifinals. Especially because it's hard courts. I am sure that at one point in his career he will crack the top ten rankings.
If he is healthy, he will definitely do it. Where does this certainty come from? Because he has all what he needs. I saw him more than once, he is an enormous talent. He moves well, he is mentally strong, he is different on his game, he is pretty complete.
I will not be surprised if he is one of the semifinalists." Toni Nadal praised the Romanian Simona Halep. Speaking to TieBreak.ro, Rafael's uncle said: "Simona is a great player. She is very normal, she does not think she is special and she plays well.
Now there is a big balance in women's tennis. It's not like in the past when Steffi Graf or Serena Williams ruled. Simona is one of the best players in the world since a long time and I am sure she will stay there. Simona has a good game, many abilities and a big speed. She has all the qualities to win other Grand Slams. It will depend on her desire, how much she wants it."
