John McEnroe shares what makes Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Djokovic great

In a press conference during the Laver Cup the Team World Captain John McEnroe spoke about Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic dominance. The seven-time Grand Slam winner said: "It's historic. We are witnessing all-time greats.

They keep pushing each other. That's what we are trying to do here, push each other to heights, greater heights, find another gear. That's what they have done incredibly well." Asked who is the best between the three, McEnroe added: "I don't know" is the answer.

I just answered. I'm not sure anyone on this podium can answer that. Nor I don't think it's -- why don't we discuss that in a year or two? We'll have a much better idea. We'll know that their careers have ended.

At some point they're going to stop, I think. Maybe after this weekend (laughter). They may just call it a day when we just whip their asses (laughter). Wouldn't that be incredible? That would be a surprising story. We'd like to be part of that."

Patrick added: "I'll just quickly add that Davis Cup was an amazing experience for me. Some of the guys here played Davis Cup, you know, when I was captain and brought the same passion that they bring to the Laver Cup.

I think we were all a little surprised at how the players really grasped this event when we first did it a couple years ago, how much they love it, how much the fans are into it. Let's see what happens with the Davis Cup.

I mean, our parents taught us to play for our country whenever we got the call and represent the country. So that was always really important to us. I think that's important for all these guys up here, too. So let's see what happens with the new Davis Cup format."
