In an interview with Forbes, former doubles player Rennae Stubbs spoke about the race featuring Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic to hold most Grand Slam titles. Stubbs said: “Obviously, again it all comes down to injuries, nobody talks about that enough.
But if Novak stays healthy, I don’t think there’s any doubt in my mind he’ll reach that. I mean, he’s got at least five more years of competitive tennis, and there’s four a year. I felt that if Roger won Wimbledon, it might’ve been possible that Roger would have stayed on top”.
Speaking of Williams, Stubbs said: “We’ve been talking about Serena at 23 and 24 for five years since she was trying to reach Steffi [Graf's 22]. And I think that was the goal, to beat Steffi’s record because no one even thought that was close to being possible after what Chrissie [Evert] and Martina [Navratilova] did.
They keep raising the bar. Now it’s Margaret Court. I didn’t know amateur Grand Slams counted, now they do." Bianca Andreescu said: “I could barely hear myself think out there. The crowd is crazy. That’s what makes the U.S.
Open so special in New York. It’s the fans, it’s the atmosphere. I’m glad at how I managed just not to let anything distract me. I was literally in the zone”.
