In an interview to Sky the coach Patrick Mouratoglou spoke about the upcoming ATP Finals championship clash between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Dominic Thiem. The Frenchman, who is helping the Greek this week, said: "It's great.
Both players are playing the best tennis of their career, they are the future of tennis. We have been waiting for the future of tennis for a long time. The Big Three (Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic) are the greatest players of all time but it's great to see some young players coming up having the potential to be world No.
1 in the future. It will be a close match. There is a new generation pushing hard like Felix Auger-Aliassime, Alex De Minaur, Jannik Sinner who is definitely in that group of the newcomers who can be great in the future. He showed incredible qualities, he also won the Next Gen Finals which is something really big because the level was very high.
It's someone who we will look at very closely because he is gonna do great things." Toni Nadal said: "My nephew made an effort in tennis but what he really likes is football. He wanted to be a famous sportsman but it's likely that he would have liked to be a footballer.
He likes football more than tennis, but he doesn't understand too much", he said on Rafael cheering on FC Real Madrid.
