Roger Federer: 'Me, Djokovic, Nadal have left profound impact on tennis'

Roger Federer spoke in a detailed way about his, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal dominance. The 38-year-old Basel native said: "All three of us guys bring something completely different. So you cannot just copy, paste and play the same exact way against us.

Rafa obviously his base from clay in a way at heart he might be a bit of a retriever, but just with an incredible power. Novak is super elastic in a way that he can defend and stay on the offensive and defense. Also very tough in his mind tried to really perfect his game after being number three, number four in the world for quite some time to take the next step was huge.

We definitely left a profound impact on the game. We play well on all surfaces and we did it for many years now, over a long period of time, at the highest level. It's definitely challenged a lot of young guys, us as well, to improve and be the best player you can be."

Dominic Thiem: "I think we are playing in one era where the three best players of all times are playing. So we are very lucky I guess." Reilly Opelka: "They have played some of the most epic tennis matches we have ever seen.

As tennis fans, even as players, we have been spoiled to have them around. And the fact that they are still here and as eager as can be, and it's just a great example for everybody. Three greatest players of all time are still working to get better every day."
