In an interview to 3iguales the former Chilean player Fernando Gonzalez spoke about what makes the Big Three so special and unique. Gonzalez said: "It's incredible that Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic keep being at the highest in tennis.
Over the course of the years they seem to have improved a lot and a big part of it is given by the body they have. It's amazing to see them at the top after so many years, but sooner than later their level will drop. There is a lot of talent among the Next Gen players.
If I should pick someone, it would be Felix Auger-Aliassime. I also mention Stefanos Tsitsipas, since he is a big competitor and he already showed he can compete against the best players on all the possible surfaces."
Diego Hartfield spoke about how he approached his first meeting ever against Federer: "In 2006 I was not playing the ATP tournaments yet, I was world No. 220, so I wanted to keep improving but at a Challenger level. I had a different swing before the French Open, instead of playing in Europe I went to some Challengers in the United States.
The goal was to try to win a Challenger or go past the French Open qualies. I started in Atlanta and I won the title. I was very confident, I won another tournament the following week and I faced Roger Federer, the best player ever.
I was so nervous." Dominic Thiem's agent Herwig Straka commented on father Wolfgang possibly becoming Dominic's coach: "Wolfgang has a deep knowledge about technology and he did it with Gunter Bresnik for years.
Nico is the guy who played, knows how it feels like to be on court so the combination between the two is perfect, they communicate a lot also during the match and Wolfgang will never be Dominic's coach. That's why the co-operation with Massu will last at least one more year", said Straka who finally spoke about Andy Murray's absence. "He has been around the world for a long time so he wants to spend time with his wife Kim who is pregnant."
