Del Potro: 'Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Djokovic made me a better player'

Juan Martin del Potro shared how it feels to play in the Big Three era. The Argentinan managed to win his maiden Grand Slam title ten years ago at the 2009 US Open defeating Roger Federer in a five-set final. Del Potro said: "I thought I was the world No.

3 for my first time at 30 years, but then I suffered a fracture. Before the injuries I could never break the barrier of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray, and I achieved it now after all what I went through. If I could do my career again, I would choose the Roger, Rafa and Nole era.

They made me a better player." It's not clear yet where del Potro may be back to compete. The Tandil native is committed to Stockholm and Vienna tournaments. The pundit Bernhard Schar spoke highly of the three greatest players ever: "There aren't other complete players like Djokovic, Federer and Nadal.

'Younger guys are just too much inconsistent or too young." The Italian coach Laura Golarsa praised Djokovic: "Nole is the most complete player ever and he showed it once again. His level and his first serve percentage got higher.

He covers the court better than others on all levels, he doesn't even waste too much physical energy using his legs in an amazing way. His clear technique and his timing on the ball makes him dominate even against Nadal's lifted backhand that makes all the other opponents struggle."
