The Frenchman Jo Wilfried Tsonga spoke about what makes Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Tsonga said: "In order to stay at the top all these years, I had to evolve. Tennis changes every year, players get stronger and the best guys are forced to reinvent themselves in order to get even more success.
Being in the top 10 or close to it for almost a decade I changed my game and I keep doing it. I have the desire. And there is also an off-court life. So I am changing my game and my career in a good way." Former Federer's coach Paul Annacone believes that the Swiss and Nadal have a closer relationship than Djokovic does with the other two: "I think Roger and Rafa have spent a lot more time together.
And the difficult thing with Novak is that he came up in an era that featured two of the greatest players that have ever played. Because of Rafa and Roger, this is a very difficult era for Novak", said Annacone. The uncle and former coach Toni was asked how much time left he thinks Rafael has in tennis: "I hope he stays at the top for a couple more years.
With injuries, you never know, but until he keeps the excitement and he sees himself with chances to win, he will continue among the best." Federer spoke about the Laver Cup in Geneva: "It's great fun. I don't know what to tell you. It's incredible all the videos and pictures that did come out of the Laver Cup again."
