In an interview with Sdna, Serena Williams's coach Patrick Mouratoglou commented on Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic's dominance. The Frenchman said: "They are the greatest players of all time. So it's not that easy.
People say younger guys do not have the opportunity to beat them, but it's not like this. They can be beaten, they are not unbeatable. Stefanos beat them all. But in order to win a Major, you need to probably beat all of the three in general or at least two although it did not happen in New York.
And that's the toughest. You can beat one, but you usually have to beat another. They are not far away from doing it but they are not ready yet." On the criticism around Tsitsipas, Mouratoglou added: "It happens all over the world, not just in Greece.
People are suddenly overwhelmed by the excitement and when things do not go the way you expect to, they are frustrated. It doesn't matter. People forget and change ideas. We do not care about what people think and say."
Mouratoglou concluded: "All the players are stressed. Everyone! It's about how you handle it. Sometimes you are stronger, sometimes you are not and it affects you more. But everyone is nervous before a Grand Slam match.
If you are in the locker room, you can see how many times they go to the bathroom before heading into the court. You will be surprised about it! It's also (with) very highly experienced players. There always some nerves. It's the competition. They play with their heart, soul, they give their best."
