Federer, Nadal, Djokovic play at unthinkable level - Delbonis

In an interview to La Nacion the Argentinean player Federico Delbonis commented on Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray legacy in tennis. Delbonis said: "For me they are four players who I do not know if we will keep see someone else like them.

They have almost 60 Grand Slam titles combined. After them, only Wawrinka, del Potro ane Cilic and someone else won, but there are not many guys who won something big over all this time, that's why they marked the tennis history.

The new generation struggles heading there because the top guys are above the others. The age doesn't matter. They keep playing and improving their level at an unthinkable level. If you look at Rafa when he started, he was playing standing far back, and now he almost plays on the baseline, and many times he goes to the net.

The new generations have many things to learn." Asked about his future, Delbonis added: "I would like to play until the 40s but I also have to feel competitive at this level. That's the most important thing. I still feel that I have things to improve, things to do, I want to continue doing it as long as it's possible."

Delbonis has a wife and a son. He concluded: "I bring my family with me when they can travel. My wife has her job... I an very happy because she was the key in my career, like all my family, but I decided that I wanted to work; she likes what she is doing and I respect a lot the decisions she takes. Obviously when my family is with me, routines change a lot because many things are different."
