It's difficult to look past Federer, Nadal, Djokovic in tennis - Henman

Speaking to Daily Mail the former world No. 4 Tim Henman commented on Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic's chances in the next season. Henman believes the Big Three will still be the guys to beat. The Brit said: "It's pretty difficult to look past Federer, Nadal and Djokovic in the men's game right now.

There's always question marks about how long Federer is going to go on, but he's still fit and healthy and enjoying it. I think he's going to contend for the majors in 2020. Medvedev has surprised me, he's been a good player for a long time but the way he's come through in the American summer and played so consistently, making the four finals and then he's just won in St Petersburg.

So it'll be interesting to see how he backs that up next year. It's not always easy… people work out your game and your strengths and weaknesses. Some of the other ones, whether it's Zverev or Thiem, Kyrgios has been pretty volatile.

We just have to watch that space, really." Asked what was the tournament of the year, Henman replied: "My favourite tournament is obviously going to be Wimbledon, but I was back in New York for the first time in 12 years this year.

It was great to see the changes… the Arthur Ashe Stadium is really the only structure and that's got a roof, they've done a great job with the Armstrong Court and the grandstand, and just the facilities, so it was good to be back there", concluded the former Wimbledon semifinalist.
